Tooth avulsion occurs commonly in pediatric practice. However, most caretakers either do not recognize the relative urgency of this injury or do not know emergent management when this does occur. Such injuries should be recognized and treated expeditiously because several studies support a more likely favorable prognosis with timely and appropriate initial management. This review highlights the essential steps in the initial diagnosis and management of this injury for both primary care practitioners and emergency medicine providers.
