Abstract

This article describes a case where during an extraction of a primary molar's root remnant, the successor permanent tooth was accidentally extruded. The extruded tooth was immediately repositioned to its right position in the socket and it erupted normally after a short time. After 2 years, a routine clinical examination revealed normal appearance of the premolar in the dental arch. A radiograph demonstrated an obliterated coronal part of the pulp, normal root length, a slightly open apex and no periapical inflammation.
