Canine auto-transplantation is a surgical procedure applied in cases of ankylosed or severely displaced impacted canines. This study describes the transplantation method, as well as clinical cases where surgical intervention helped continue and complete orthodontic treatment. Literature review shows that canine auto-transplantation has, with minor variations, a wide range of applications and is almost always accompanied by or forms a part of comprehensive orthodontic treatment. It offers an alternative solution for managing complications and provides long-term stability. Method selection should be performed following thorough diagnosis taking into consideration the extent of surgical intervention necessary.
