Intentional replantation can be an alternative choice for periodontally involved hopeless tooth at least for a period of time. This technique may help to restore an original tooth to function in the mouth instead of replacing it with prosthesis. The combination of one or more techniques currently available for periodontal therapy may have the potential to enhance clinical results as compared to any of the techniques used alone. In this case report, intentional replantation was combined with regenerative techniques. A very popular agent, platelet rich plasma was used in combination with bioactive glass graft material and non-resorbable PTFE membrane. The technique and one year results of treatment were discussed radiographically and clinically.
