Dental avulsion is the accidental displacement of a tooth from its socket. It is rare in dentistry and is treated as an emergency when it occurs. This clinical case reports a dental avulsion of a right maxillary central incisor in a 13-year-old boy with subsection-contused wound on the lip. We proceeded to suture the lip and replant the tooth with non-rigid titanium and composite splinting for 14 days. At the beginning, the tooth preserved vitality but one month later a radiolucency could be seen in a radiography checkup so it was decided to perform root canal treatment. A comprehensive literature review was done to know the current state of the subject.
