Teeth trauma can lead to coronal and root fractures, subluxations, luxations, and avulsions. Avulsion is characterized by the complete displacement of the tooth from its socket, affecting the periodontal ligament, cementum, alveolar bone, gingival and pulp tissues resulting in necrosis of the pulp and root resorption. Managing avulsion is often found to be very complex, consuming a lot of time and clinical skills as well as expensive as it involves multi-disciplinary approaches like endodontics and periodontal treatment, surgical and minor orthodontic movements, and also an esthetic coronal restoration of the fractured or avulsed tooth. The present review provides a deep insight into newer clinical modalities for timely and suitable management of avulsed teeth and also elaborates the rationale behind their use.
