It is often very difficult to replant avulsed teeth in the deciduous and mixed dentition when the cortical bone is fractured and there are no adjacent teeth for anchorage. In this article, we describe the management of avulsed maxillary incisors in a 7-yearold boy. The avulsed teeth could be successfully repositioned by intra-alveolar transplantation using the 180° rotation (buccolingual reverse) method, which was originally applied to preserve teeth with relatively deep subgingival crown-root

The post-operative course was uneventful with an aesthetic and functionally stable outcome.
