Summary: Several studies shows that a wide range from 3-16% of dentoalveolar traumatic injuries result in avulsion. The ideal treatment for avulsion would be the reimplantation of the tooth. Thus, it is recommended to replant the tooth as quickly as possible.

At the present article are discussed some storage medium and the results published in the international literature.
