Abstract The major causes of post-replantation tooth loss are inflammatory root resorption and root resorption associated with ankylosis. Recent studies have concentrated on delineating the cellular interactions in the pulp and periodontium in order to more fully understand the various factors affecting the prognoses of such teeth. The aim of this report is to discuss the nature of the pathology responsible for tooth loss following avulsion and to review recent replantation and attachment studies.
