5 Yr Recall on Intentional Replantation

This patient came to SSE for RCT in 2010. It was a necrotic and RCT was completed.  The lesion failed to heal, so retreatment was completed in 2012.  Lesion still failed to heal, so intentional replantation was chosen as a last resort before extracting the tooth #14.
Tooth #14 was carefully extracted and all 3 canals were resected, retrofilled and reimplanted within minutes. 
5 Year recall shows great apical bone healing.  The tooth is functional, normal percussion, normal probing.  Intentional implantation should be considered as an opion in certain situations.
