Abstract:

An avulsed tooth or avulsion (ex-articulation) is an emergency traumatic experience. Tooth avulsion results in damage to attachment and pulp necrosis. Although the possibility of the eventual loss of the tooth should be explained to the patient, replantation reduces the traumatic / physiological effect to the accident.

Clinically, successful replantation result in prolonged retention which improves esthetic appearance, arch form, chewing, and integrity of the arch. This case report presents successful emergency management of an avulsed maxillary left central incisor of a 6 year old child patient with extra oral time of 5 hours. Treatment at the dental office involved immediate replantation and acid-etch composite splint followed by root canal treatment of the tooth and subsequent follow-up.

Keywords: Avulsion, replantation , Composite splint.
