OVERVIEW

  • Systematic Review Conclusion:

    Extraoral endodontic treatment is not detrimental for avulsed permanent teeth that are replanted after more than 60 minutes’ dry time. Other treatments require more study.

  • Critical Summary Assessment:

    Although all experimental interventions for avulsion included in this systematic review showed favorable outcomes, conclusions must be interpreted with caution owing to a moderate-to-high risk of bias in all the studies included in the review.

  • Evidence Quality Rating:

    Limited
