Current Guidlines on Treatment of an Avulsed Permanent Tooth.

 Definition of avulsion = total displacement of a tooth out of the socket where the root is not fractured and the tooth is a permanent tooth.


Most common in 7 - 9 year olds.


  • Do not touch the root only handle by the crown
  • If clean reimplant immediately.
  • If dirty rinse ice cold milk or saline then reimplant.
  • If can not implant then store in the child’s mouth between the cheek and the teeth or transport in milk.
  • Get to a dentist ASAP.

Try and reimplant within 5 minutes.



Never implant a baby tooth.
