During extraction of the primary mandibular right second molar in an 11-year-old girl, the unerupted second premolar was accidentally extracted. Clinical and radiographic examination showed that the immediately replanted immature premolar was not oriented and positioned correctly. Four hours later, treatment consisted of manual extrusion of the permanent tooth bud, rotation, and gentle repositioning into its original position. Adequate replantation was confirmed by a post-operative radiograph. After 2 years and 4 months, clinical examination revealed normal, healthy appearance of the replanted tooth, no sensitivity to percussion, no tenderness to palpation, and a slight response to a cold pulp sensibility test. A radiograph showed completely developed root with closed apical foramen, slightly irregular root morphology and shorter root length, complete obliteration of the pulp, and no signs of periapical pathosis.
