This case report describes the successful treatment of an adult with a skeletal Class II Division 2 posttraumatic dentition with consequential restorations. The extracted maxillary premolar was autotransplanted to replace the hopeless mandibular first molar. The endodontically treated maxillary right canine was extracted instead of the premolar. A multidisciplinary approach including autotransplantation and orthodontic treatment provided a satisfactory outcome.
