A 3-year old girl visited Department for preventive and pediatric dentistry within the University Dental Center Ss. Pantelejmon in Skopje, due to a tooth injury in the upper jaw after falling during walking at home yard. The injury happened the day before, so the time taken from the injury to the arrival of the pediatric dentist was more than 24 hours. The girl did not have any signs or symptoms of neurological damage. After obtaining accident history and performed clinical examination and X-ray the diagnosis of complete traumatic dental avulsion 61 was made. The teeth was transported in a glass bottle with physiological solution. According to the guidelines of the International Association of Dental Traumatology, replantation of deciduous teeth is contraindicated because it can cause a number of complications. Avulsion as a dental trauma injury leads to premature loss of primary incisors thus causing numbers of short‐ and long‐term sequelae on the life of the child. Therefore, the role of the pediatric dentist is very important, who should manage these injuries well and should give advice and support to the parents and manage the child constantly and accordingly in the post-traumatic period.</p> <p><strong>DOI: <a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.5088179">http://dx.doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.5088179</a></strong></p> Vesna Ambarkova Arzu Tringo Amela Fejzuli Tina Krmzova ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2021-07-09 2021-07-09 9 2 37 41
