Autotransplantation enabled the usage of natural tooth rather than prosthesis to replace a missing tooth. Autotransplantation of the mature tooth, incompletely formed root or an immature tooth bud can be done with variable success rate. Autotransplantation carried out within short duration in younger patient with immature tooth bud gives higher success rate. Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a wonderful tissue engineering product and has gained much popularity due its promising results in wound healing. This case report illustrates the efficacy of PRF in the treatment of the autotransplantation of tooth bud.
