Clinical practice has shown that it avulsed teeth are replanted after a delayed extra-alveolar time it compromises the prognosis of replantation. In case of delayed replantation, the use of adequate media for storage and transportation of avulsed teeth may improve the prognosis considerably. The case reported in the study is of an accidentally avulsed maxillary right central incisor that was kept in milk from the moment of trauma until its replantation, 30 minutes later. One year follow-up revealed absence of root resorption, ankylosis or abnormal mobility, which demonstrates the feasibility of keeping avulsed teeth in milk.
