Abstract: During my internship at the department Oral Maxillofacial Surgery of the St. John's Hospital in Genk, I performed two studies with both a different approach. First, a retrospective study was carried out to determine the long-term survival and success rates of autogenously transplanted canines. In addition, the influence of various parameters such as age, gender, root formation and others on the long-term success rate was investigated. The second study was rather a prospective study in order to optimize and describe the protocol of a tooth transplantation template. More specifically, different methods of image segmentation were investigated. We concluded that autotransplantation of impacted canines may have a successful outcome 11 years after transplantation. Furthermore, the success rate increased when performing the transplantation at a younger age. The prospective study indicated the region-based segmentation method as the most appropriate for tooth segmentation In the future, the s
