Dental traumatic injuries are the most uninvited emergencies causing panic, emotional, aesthetic, functional and psychological disturbances. Avulsion being the most common injury, it deals with exarticulation or total luxation of the tooth out of its socket as a result of sports injuries or fights. While in-vitro studies have shown that teeth can be kept in conditioned media for up to 96 hours and still present optimal healing, clinically emphasis on the extra-oral time and viability of the PDL cells decide the prognosis for the avulsed tooth. Transport or storage media for the tooth is of critical importance for survival of these PDL cells for successful replantation. This article highlights the different storage media available for an avulsed tooth and the most suitable ones to be used depending on their ease of availability for the general population.
