This study evaluated the clinical and radiographic results of the intentional replantation of periodontally hopeless teeth with combined enamel matrix derivative and demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft therapy. Eleven patients (five female, six male; age range, 13 to 53 years) with 12 periodontally hopeless teeth resulting from extensive alveolar bone loss and vertical defects extending to the apexes were studied. At the 12-month clinical and radiologic follow-up, significant improvement was observed for all clinical and radiographic parameters except gingival recession (P < .05). These preliminary findings show that intentional replantation combined with regenerative techniques is a successful alternative to tooth extraction.
