Intrusion is a very severe injury involving damage to the periodontal ligament, cementum, alveolar bone, and neurovascular pulp supply. Current management strategies include passive repositioning by waiting for the tooth to regain its preinjury position, and active repositioning, i.e., immediate surgical repositioning or repositioning with traction.
