Dentoalveolar Trauma - Tooth luxation with displacement - Intrusion

General considerations

Tooth intrusion is associated with a potential risk of loss of the affected tooth due to replacement resorption (ankylosis) or infection related resorption. Treatment methods are only partly evidence based. Prognosis in all cases is uncertain.
