Embedding Avulsed Permanent Tooth in Patient's Connective Tissues Insures Better Possible Prognosis in Replantation; A Hypothesis
Amir Hashem Shahidi Bonjar

This hypothesis declares that avulsed permanent tooth can be preserved live inside patient's body flesh for afterwards replantation. Such type of live preservation would be applicable for patients who get avulsed teeth by complete displacement of a tooth from its socket in alveolar bone owing to trauma and in which teeth cannot be immediately replanted due to maxillofacial surgical complications. In such circumstances, the surgeon can embed the detached fresh healthy teeth somewhere in non-oral patient flesh; e.g. in subcutaneous superficial connective tissues of under armpit or lateral abdominal regions. The embedded teeth would not perish in patients flesh since they would receive nourishment through diffusion from their surrounding connective tissue. In later proper stages, OMS surgeon will remove the embedded teeth and replants them in their original sockets. Such treatment reduces chance of loss of permanent teeth due to dental avulsion in patients having accidents which go through problematic and complicated OMS treatments.
