This is a case report of a 14-year-old female patient in whom a premolar from a donor was used as an allotransplant to replace her missing lower premolar. The treatment results over 6 months showed successful periodontal healing and functioning of the allotransplanted tooth. The aim of this paper is to report a procedure, allotransplantation of tooth, which is followed from ages but less preferred and documented and is surrounded by variable prognosis and also highlight the use of a intentionally extracted tooth for orthodontic purpose, which otherwise goes as a waste and moreover the use of this technique can supplement the need of an implant for the time being in the young patient without compromising her alveolar bone height, functioning, and esthetics.
