This report presents a case of a completely intrusive luxation of a mature permanent central incisor in a 10-yr-old boy. The intruded tooth was repositioned by using surgical extrusion and stabilization with interdental sutures. Endodontic treatment was performed with calcium hydroxide paste as the intracanal medication and a calcium hydroxide-based root canal sealar. This treatment mode was observed at 18 months and was successful at that time.
