Intentional re-implantation is a procedure in which a tooth is intentionally extracted and then reinserted into its own socket for various treatment modalities. In this case report, we discuss a case of intentional re-implantation as a treatment option for failed root canal treatment with broken instrument in the apical 1/3rd of a maxillary first molar. A follow up for 2 year revealed the patient to be asymptomatic, the tooth to be sound and functional with no evidence of root resorption.
