Abstract: Objective. Tooth avulsion is one of the most severe forms of dental trauma. In these cases, immediate reimplantation is ideal; however, it almost never happens. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the viability of cells stored in soymilk and compare with other several storage media. Materials and methods. The media tested were: long-shelf-life coconut water, long-shelf-life whole milk, long-shelf-life soymilk, Gatorade, egg white, and Hank's Balanced Salt Solution. Cells cultured in DMEM and distilled water served as positive and negative controls, respectively. Plates containing confluent 3T3 fibroblast were soaked in the various media for 2, 12 and 24 h. After incubation at 37 degrees C, viability of the cells was determined using the MTS assay. Data were analyzed by using one-way ANOVA and complemented by Tukey test with a significance level of 5%. Results. Statistical analysis showed that DMEM, whole milk, HBSS and soymilk were the most effective media for maintaining cell viability at all tested times (p < 0.05), followed by coconut water, egg white and Gatorade. The least amount of viable cells was observed in the distilled water group. Conclusions. The present study shows that the efficacy of soymilk in maintaining the viability of 3T3 fibroblasts is similar to that of HBSS and milk. Therefore, it can be concluded that soymilk could be a suitable alternative storage medium for avulsed teeth.
