An avulsed tooth or avulsion is an emergency traumatic experience. Tooth avulsion results in the damage of attachment apparatus and pulpal necrosis. The management of avulsed tooth often presents a challenge to the clinician. Clinically, successful replantation of an avulsed teeth results in prolonged retention of teeth which improves esthetic appearance, mastication of food and maintaining the integrity of the arch. This case report presents a successful management of avulsed maxillary permanent left central incisor in a 16-year-old female patient with an extra oral time of 30 h. After extraoral root canal treatment, avulsed tooth was replanted back into the socket. 1-year follow-up examination revealed successful replantation of the avulsed tooth, with no evidence of root resorption or ankylosis.
