Facial trauma resulting in tooth avulsion causes problems of physical and emotional nature for the patient and a challenge to the dentist. Avulsion accounts for 0.5-16% of traumatic injuries in the permanent dentition that can occur at any age and is most common in the young permanent dentition. As an emergency procedure, it is advisable to replant a traumatically avulsed tooth, but unfortunately long-term success is rather low. It is very difficult to fulfill immediate aesthetic and psychological requirement if avulsed tooth is missing at the site of trauma and also to prevent arch length discrepancy. We presented a method for management of one such case reported 10 days after avulsion of maxillary tooth using the acrylic tooth as pontic in a fixed semi-permanent bridge until a more definitive prosthesis can be fabricated at a later age for better patient compliance.
