Most traumatic injuries to the upper permanent incisors result in crown fractures. It is commonly associated with luxation injuries. This report describes a multidisciplinary management of a traumatically intruded permanent central incisor tooth of an 18-year-old boy who presented late after trauma. The intruded tooth had been endodontically treated immediately after the injury while the tooth was in the same intruded position. Five years after the initial injury, the tooth was surgically repositioned and restored with postendodontic therapy with good esthetics.
