Abstract

Avulsed tooth ought to be replanted quickly, because the vitality of periodontal ligament predetermines the success rate of the procedure, and the tooth storage media is an important factor for maintaining its vitality. In addition, there is a possibility for utilizing packaged coconut water and UHT milk as storage media, based on its isotonic mineral content and the commercial availability. To compare the effectiveness of packaged coconut water and UHT milk as a storage medium for avulsed tooth. Twenty-seventh freshly extracted Caviacobaya teeth were divided into 1 treatment and 2 control groups, where each was further divided into 3 subgroups, based on the immersion time of 30, 60, and 240 minutes. In addition, the periodontal ligament fibroblasts were cultured with versen trypsin solution and labeled using 0.4% trypan blue, and subsequently counted with a hemocytometer, on a light microscope. Furthermore, the data were analyzed with SPSS version 24, using ANOVA analysis. The amount of fibroblast obtained in UHT milk group was significantly higher than the value obtained for mineral and also packaged coconut water groups in 30, 60, or 240 minutes (p≤0.05). It was established that UHT milk is more effective than bottled coconut water as a storage medium of avulsed teeth, at a value of up to 240 minutes.
