Intrusion is the most severe luxation injury type, which results in both soft and hard tissue damage. In severe intrusions, the crown must be re-positioned in the arch to avoid periapical pathology and marginal bone loss. There is minimal information about the effect of treatment delay on pulpal and periodontal healing in intrusion trauma. The present paper reports on two cases of severe intrusive luxation applied late at different times treated with surgical extrusion. The first patient, an 11-year-old female, referred to Tokat GOP pediatric dentistry clinic three days after the intrusion tooth 21. The second patient, a 13-year-old male, referred to our clinic fifteen days after a traffic accident. The intruded teeth were positioned surgically and splinted. Surgical extrusion should be preferred as soon as possible to initiate root canal treatment in teeth, the crown of which is fully embedded in the alveolar bone. (EEJ-2020-02-025)
