Abstract
Tooth avulsion usually causes inflammatory root resorption and ankylosis, and ankylosis cause severe functional and esthetic problems, especially in childhood. A 7-year-old female visited the Dept. of Pediatric Dentistry, Yonsei University with the chief complaint of avulsive trauma to the upper right incisor which was left dry for 40 minutes. Tooth was irrigated with saline and replanted immediately and splinted. Anti bacterial agent and anti inflammatory agent were prescribed. After 4 months of replantation slight external root resorption and apical radiolucency was seen at radiographic examination, therfore pulp extirpation and calcium hydroxide(VitapexTM) canal filling were carried out. After 16 months, root canal was filled with gutta-percha, and bleaching treatment was done. Treatment results were satisfactory both esthetically and functionally for 8 years and 5 months.
Key Words: Avulsion, Replantation
