CE: 1.0


Avulsions is considered to be one of the most severe and complex dental injuries with regards to treatment and long-term prognosis. The extra-alveolar dry period and storage medium in which a tooth is kept prior to replantation remain critical factors affecting the survival and repair potential of the periodontal ligament in avulsed teeth. When replantation is not immediate, replacement root resorption (RRR) and ankylosis is the most common complication. This lecture will discuss the recently published guidelines and present emerging approaches for the treatment of avulsed teeth with long extra-alveolar dry time.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:         

  • Discuss avulsion injuries and its complications in growing patients.
  • Explain the new published protocols and strategies for avulsed teeth
  • Describe new concepts for rehabilitation and regeneration of injured tissues.
