A high prevalence of dental trauma exists; its effects on function and esthetics deserve the attention of general dentists. Initial management and suitable treatment plan is difficult particularly in cases of tooth avulsion. In addition to the technical knowledge and clinical skills directed towards the quality of treatment, patient education may favorably influence the survival rate of replanted teeth. As trauma leaves a deficit in self esteem and quality of life apart from affecting the previously healthy dentition, dentists have a critical role to play in averting the psychological erosion. This study sticks out the level of awareness among general dentists regarding the immediate treatment of avulsed tooth in Nellore, Andhra Pradesh; India and straightens out the necessity for continuing dental education for general dentists.
