Tooth transplantation has attracted great interests since ancient times. A successful case of tooth allotransplantation is presented in this article. Teeth from two different donors was implanted into the socket of the mandibular central incisors. Follow-up of 1-year indicated good periapical healing with no resorption. Clinically, the transplantation site was free of symptoms and there was no evidence of periodontal disease or tooth mobility. This article suggests tooth transplantation as an alternative to other restorative options in children.
