Section 1-5. Re-implantation therapy can avoid extraction of teeth

The applied procedure comprised removal of the tooth with enough care. Simultaneously, the cracked part of the tooth and the apical foramen possessing the blood and the nerves were bonded and closed by using the super bond. Promptly, the treated tooth was returned to the hole of the jaw bone where “Hazo” was located. After follow-up for 1 month, 2 months, 6 months, 1 year and 2 years, I found that the treated tooth was successfully implanted like those other intact teeth. Recently, I investigated her prognosis after 5 years’ lapse of time and the results including X ray determination revealed that the said tooth was completely normal while she had neither inconvenience nor complaints for chewing foods. This case clearly showed that teeth are living organs. Subsequently, whenever I encountered various cases including the patients with cracked teeth like the above-cited Hanayama, the severe case in whom dental caries expanded to too much deeper part of the jawbone to be cured by usual treatments, the cases in whom usual treatment for tooth root will fail to obtain any alleviation and lots of cases who need extraction of teeth, application of this technology has become possible without any extraction of teeth (Figures V and VI).
The next case was a junior high school girl student. She had severe dental caries and she was scheduled to undergo extraction of the decayed tooth at a near-by dental clinic tomorrow; however, she happened to visit our Muratsu Clinic one day before the planned extraction. Furthermore, the said tooth was the most important submaxillary first molar. Of course, this tooth was retained by the re-implantation remedy (Please refer to the middle part of Figure VI). Concerning the severity of decayed tooth, this tooth could not help being extracted by usual dentists based on the past dental paradigm. In sharp contrast, however, the new “Hazo” paradigm permitted retain of this tooth. If this 12-year-old girl loses the important submaxillary first molar, I am afraid that the important “Hazo” function which operates by bilateral combination of teeth might be remarkably reduced, leading to quite different subsequent life of this girl. If this tooth is extracted and subsequent treatment is made based on the conventional technology, I anticipate that probably the neighboring teeth such as the second molar and the second bicuspid might be ground to make a bridge between them. During the treatment period, I am afraid to say that probably bites might become inappropriate while her systemic dysfunctions, reduction of power of memory and reduced concentrating power may be induced. In addition it would appear likely that incompatible foreign materials employed for implantation would cause disorders of vital “Hado”, breakouts and changes of characteris. She had a narrow escape from troubles.
Such a re-transplantation technology can be applied to transplantation of other teeth to different positions. For example, suppose that the maxillary second molar is too much decayed and needs transplantation, we can transplant the neighboring the third molar to the extraction space after removal of the decayed tooth, besides the extraction space of the third molar being treated. Two years ago, this neighboring transplantation surgery was conducted in a woman of 20s years of age and this transplanted tooth works well. In this case, the biting perception is restored as before and we might say that the organ functions of teeth can be restored.
