AUTHOR(S): Dr. Mohsin Khan and Dr. Mridul Sharma
ABSTRACT:Exarticulation or dental avulsion is considered as the most serious type of traumatic tooth injuries. The most common management of avulsion is reimplantation which is widely accepted as an effective treatment, but it depends on various factors such as extra alveolar storage period, vitality status of pulp and periodontal tissue. The important clinical factor for better prognosis is the appropriate use of wet storage media. The present review discusses the wide array of different types of wet storage media and the comparison of their clinical factors such as osmolarity, pH, storage time on their efficacy.
