That was thirty years ago and I've suffered crowded teeth that whole time. Now I see tooth autotransplantation and wonder if I might follow my sister's lead by transplanting the four teeth behind the eye teeth to the spot wisdom teeth once were? I hate to lose any teeth, so is it possible to keep these otherwise perfectly healthy teeth? They needn't be functional (although that would be a bonus), but living spares.
Since these crowded teeth get very little use, they have no cavities, while more functional teeth (main molars) are riddled with cavities. It would be nice to have living replacements when the molars eventually fail. And I haven't pulled the crowded offender's due to the prospect of losing molars someday. In other words, I'm carrying the spares anyway and at the painful expense of crowding and grinding, so why not transplant the spares to alleviate the crowding, while keeping the spares?
Is there a way to reintroduce the blood vessels into the transplanted teeth, so the teeth not only take root, but thrive? I see a lot of dentists root canal transplanted teeth. That doesn't seem productive in this case. Only fully living transplants would do.
Is it possible?
