Abstract

Tooth avulsion is amongst the serious dental injuries which have a physical as well as psychological impact on the patient. It is frequent in the age group of 7-14 years with maxillary anterior teeth being the most commonly affected. Management of avulsed permanent tooth often presents a challenge. Replantation of the avulsed tooth is the best conservative treatment available. Prognosis of replantation is directly related to parameters like physiological status of periodontal ligament, extraoral handling of affected tooth, length of extraoral dry time and the storage medium. The purpose of the article is to describe the management of 22 year old female with avulsed maxillary lateral incisor which was reimplanted 19 hours after the injury.
