Three avulsed teeth that were replanted and splinted after approximately a 200-min dry extraoral period in two patients are presented. In case 1 calcium hydroxide treatment was performed 1 month after replantation, because the patient did not come for endodontic treatment on the day after replantation as requested. In case 2, calcium hydroxide treatment was initiated on the day after replantation. Calcium hydroxide treatment was used to prevent or treat inflammatory root resorption, During the follow-up periods the teeth reported in these cases have remained in a stable, functional position and did not reveal clinical ankylosis or replacement resorption.
