Abstract

An avulsion is a serious injury to the tooth as well as to the periodontium. The present case report represents an avulsed permanent tooth with an extended extra-oral dry time period of 90 minutes. Re-implantation should be the emergency management for an avulsed tooth. Its prognosis will depend upon the time elapsed and the treatment plan to manage the avulsed tooth. In the present case, emphasis is given on the proper protocol in the emergency management of an avulsed permanent maxillary central incisor with a follow-up of 3 years.
