Three-dimensional (3D) autotransplantation is a technique for surgical transposition of a tooth to another site within one patient, using 3D printed replicas of the donor tooth. In this study, we evaluated intraoperative experiences during 3D autotransplantation of teeth.

Autotransplantation of premolars with incomplete root development is a reliable treatment option for tooth replacement. Nevertheless, little is known about root development after transplantation of te...
When multiple target lung nodules exist, the CT-guided percutaneous localization procedure becomes complicated. In this study, we designed a three-dimensionally (3D) printed template which can guide h...
A medical-grade computed tomography scan of a mandible was obtained. A DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) series was exported in 1-mm slices and digitally 3-dimensionally reconstru...
The objective of the present study was to assess the ability of transduced rat bone-marrow cells (RBMCs) that overexpress BMP-2 loaded on a three-dimensionally (3D) printed scaffold to heal a critical...
We propose an improvement of the replica-exchange and replica-permutation methods, which we call the replica sub-permutation method (RSPM). Instead of considering all permutations, this method uses a ...
Tooth autotransplantation is a treatment option to replace tooth with imposible prognosis. In several cases the receipt site has a reduced bone dimension. This situation may be imposible t...
This study is conducted to overcome the problems of conventional indirect bonding technique, through investigating accuracy of two novel three dimensionally digitally printed indirect bond...
Clinical trial to evaluate the success rate of autotransplantation of teeth with advanced or completed root growth with intraoperative extracorporeal root tip resection in 20 patients.
We are evaluating the effectiveness of custom-made 3D-printed ceramic (tooth-colored) brackets (braces) compared to conventional tooth-colored brackets (braces). As a participant, you wil...
The purpose of this study is to compare short-term and long-term efficacy of total parathyroidectomy with autotransplantation and total parathyroidectomy without autotransplantation for Se...
Methods of preparing tissue specimens for visualization using an electron microscope, usually a scanning electron microscope. The methods involve the creation of exact copies of the specimens by making a mold or cast (i.e., replica) of the specimen.
The pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes. It is differentiated from TOOTH ATTRITION in that this type of wearing away is the result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It differs also from TOOTH EROSION, the progressive loss of the hard substance of a tooth by chemical processes not involving bacterial action. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p2)
The wearing away of a tooth as a result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It is chiefly associated with aging. It is differentiated from TOOTH ABRASION (the pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by friction, as brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes) and from TOOTH EROSION (the loss of substance caused by chemical action without bacterial action). (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p86)
The upper part of the tooth, which joins the lower part of the tooth (TOOTH ROOT) at the cervix (TOOTH CERVIX) at a line called the cementoenamel junction. The entire surface of the crown is covered with enamel which is thicker at the extremity and becomes progressively thinner toward the cervix. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p216)
A fabricated tooth substituting for a natural tooth in a prosthesis. It is usually made of porcelain or plastic.
Dentistry is the study, management and treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the mouth, jaw, teeth and their supporting tissues (Oxford Medical Dictionary) The work of a dentist ranges from regular patient check-up to orthodontics and surgery....
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
