An avulsion is the most common of all dental injuries in a pediatric patient. Its prognosis depends on time management and a proper treatment plan. The most favoured treatment of choice after avulsion is reimplantation, but cannot always be carried out immediately. A case of reimplantation of maxillary central incisors which got accidentally avulsed in a 14-yearold boy is reported. The teeth were reimplanted back into the alveolar socket and splinting with 23 gauge stainless steel wire and composite was performed. Follow-up at 7 and 15 months of the interval was done. After 15 months of follow-up, no symptoms of pain or mobility of the teeth were seen. The reimplanted teeth were firm and there was no sign of infection, inflammation or resorption radiographically.

Abstract


An avulsion is the most common of all dental injuries in a pediatric patient. Its prognosis depends on time management and a proper treatment plan. The most favoured treatment of choice after avulsion is reimplantation, but cannot always be carried out immediately. A case of reimplantation of maxillary central incisors which got accidentally avulsed in a 14-yearold boy is reported. The teeth were reimplanted back into the alveolar socket and splinting with 23 gauge stainless steel wire and composite was performed. Follow-up at 7 and 15 months of the interval was done. After 15 months of follow-up, no symptoms of pain or mobility of the teeth were seen. The reimplanted teeth were firm and there was no sign of infection, inflammation or resorption radiographically.
