ABSTRACT
This case report presents two cases of delayed replantation of avulsed maxillary central incisors after an extended dry extra-alveolar period. Eight-year-old boy and 10-year-old boy presented with avulsed maxillary central incisors due to trauma occurring 27 and 7 hours earlier, respectively. Treatment guidelines for avulsed mature/immature permanent teeth with prolonged extra-oral time were carried out for the teeth and the extra-oral endodontic treatment was completed. After having been repositioned, the teeth were stabilized for 4 weeks and prophylactic antibiotic was prescribed. Clinical and radiographic controls were done after 18 months for Case I and 12 months for Case II. During the follow-up periods the teeth reported in these cases have remained in a stable, functional position but revealed clinical initial replacement resorption and ankylosis.

fig1: Avulsion of the left upper incisor.

Mentions: An 8-year-old boy was referred to the pediatric dental clinic after a fall that resulted in dental trauma. The trauma occurred 27 hours ago while the child was playing in the school garden. The child had already been seen by the medical staff of the emergency unit of a local hospital who had detected no neurological damage or medical complications. His parents had let the avulsed tooth dry in a piece of paper and brought it to the clinic. Any concomitant systemic disease is not defined by the patient's parents. The intraoral examination revealed that the maxillary left permanent central incisor (tooth 21) was avulsed (Figure 1). An uncomplicated crown fracture, with dentin involvement, luxation, hypermobility of the upper right permanent central incisor (tooth 11), and laceration of the palatal mucosa, was detected. In a vitality test, the adjacent teeth gave a positive response. The patient had mixed dentition and severe carious lesions due to poor oral hygiene.
