The conventional treatment plan for an ectopically positioned tooth is surgical exposure and orthodontic treatment. In severely rotated or inverted ectopic tooth where orthodontic traction is not possible, surgical removal and replacement with prosthesis are commonly opted.

Autotransplantation in many cases is the only alternative to prosthetic substitution and is seldom considered as a treatment option in our country. Autogenous transplantation or autotransplantation is defined as the transplantation of embedded, impacted, or erupted teeth from one site into extraction sites or into surgically prepared sockets in the same person. The report presents examples of successful cases of autotransplantation of ectopic teeth as donor in the treatment of clinically missing maxillary anterior teeth in young patients. The transplanted teeth were either severely ectopic, inverted, rotated or in an unfavorable position that they are commonly sacrificed as a result.
