An 8-year-old girl sustained an accidental traumatic avulsion of her right maxillary permanent central incisor. She arrived with her mother at a hospital dental clinic with the right maxillary central incisor tooth wrapped in a wet paper towel over 1 hour after the injury. Replantation was accomplished without root surface alter- ation or root canal intervention. Clinical and radiographic follow-up examinations for over 1 year revealed continued root growth and apical development of the replanted avulsed immature maxillary central incisor with no signs or symptoms of pulpal or periapical pathosis. Excellent outcomes were achieved for periodon- tal ligament reattachment without removal of the periodontal membrane and pulp revascularization with- out endodontic intervention.
