Dental injuries are very common and can occur at any age. Avulsion of tooth is a grievous injury and ranges from 1-16% among the traumatic injuries, of which maxillary anterior are the commonest. Replantation of the avulsed tooth is the treatment of choice, since it recovers the optimal function and esthetics, under ideal conditions and as the modern dentistry strives for the preservation of natural dentition. The present case report describes the management of an avulsed maxillary central incisor by replantation after 16 hours of extra-oral time in an 18 year old girl.

Keywords: Avulsion, Replantation, Extra-oral time.
