The current study reports replantation of an avulsed tooth after 30 h. The avulsed tooth was the left maxillary permanent central incisor that was kept in a plastic envelope under dry condition in an 8.5-year-old girl. After soaking of the avulsed tooth in hydrofluoric acid gel and irrigation of the socket with sterile saline solution, mineral trioxide aggregate was placed over the apex of avulsed tooth and root canal filling was completed. Finally, the avulsed tooth was soaked in doxycycline solution and placed in the socket. Subsequently, the tooth was splinted with 0.7 mm orthodontic wire for 8 weeks. At 2-, 6- and 12-month follow ups, the clinical and radiographic findings of the tooth did not reveal any signs of replacement or inflammatory resorption.
