Intentional replantation (IR) is a surgical approach consisting of a tooth’s controlled extraction. The latter is repositioned in its original alveolar socket after being endodontically treated extra-orally. The present work was conducted to assess the Intentional replantation by reviewing the literature of articles presenting case reports treated with the IR technique. The current literature search was conducted through PubMed, Scopus, EMBASE, and Google Scholar. Articles updated from 1996 to December 1st 2021, have been included. Each reviewed article was evaluated using a ten-question data extraction form to identify the type of study, the sex and age of the patients, the teeth treated, the extra-alveolar time of the teeth, the techniques used and the time of follow up. Modern technologies recently introduced in dentistry aided in achieving encouraging results; in particular, it has been highlighted that surgical interventions are shorter and less invasive and with a lower percentage of failures. In conclusion, this work aimed to analyze and discuss the surgical procedures of IR described in the literature by different authors through a review of the literature. Furthermore, a clinical case using the intentional reimplantation technique was also reported.
