Intentional Replantation (IR) is a concept that has been known for over a thousand years, it is defined by Grossman (1966) as an atraumatic extraction of a tooth and its reinsertion into its socket immediately after endodontic treatment and apical repair is done extra-orally. Some authors consider intentional replantation to be a last option; whereas others consider, it was another treatment modality. However, in cases where a dental implant, non-surgical retreatment or surgical treatment is not possible, intentional replantation may be a viable treatment option. Recent case reports have demonstrated that, with good case selection, intentional replantation can be a reliable and predictable procedure. The sensitive portion of the treatment is removal of the tooth traumatically. In the presentation, some cases of Intentional replantation will be reviewed that show the feasibility of the procedure in different situations.
