Conventional and surgical endodontic therapy is accepted as foreseen clinical procedures that save teeth with pulpal disease which would otherwise be extracted. When a tooth's pulp is irreversibly damaged or infected due to caries, cracks, trauma, or leaky restorations, endodontic therapy or extraction are the only workable options [1]. Teeth undergoing initial endodontic therapy have a very high survival rate. Some teeth that continue to show signs of pathosis after the initial therapy will require nonsurgical (orthograde) retreatment [2]. Intentional replantation is valid and inevitable for cases in which nonsurgical endodontic retreatment is unsuccessful or is impractical and endodontic surgery is hindered because of anatomic restrictions [3].
