Introduction: The main treatment of impacted canines is orthodontics. In case of failure, extraction of the canine and the subsequent placement of a dental implant is given as an alternative. Autotransplantation is considered a treatment option as long as the full extraction of the canine is viable, because it provides many advantages as the ability of mobilization with orthodontics. Case report: Description of a clinical case in which an autotransplantation of an included canine was carried out after traction failed in a young patient. After regenerative surgery was realized in its surroundings the patient underwent orthodontic and restorative treatment. 18 months of follow-up later the patient remains asymptomatic, with no mobility or resorption signs and with a healthy periodontal state in said canine. Conclusion: Autotransplantation can be a suitable alternative when orthodontic traction has failed, as long as it is viable, especially in young patient when implants are not recommended.
