A combination traumatic injury involving avulsion and intrusive luxation type of injury is a rare clinical occurrence. This case report describes the management of an intruded central incisor along with repositioned avulsed teeth. The rationale behind this interdisciplinary treatment approach was to use orthodontic extrusion of the tooth for biological repositioning of the tooth along with esthetic management during the treatment period. Clinical Relevance to Interdisciplinary Dentistry
  • Avulsed teeth when replanted immediately have a good prognosis.
  • Orthodontic extrusion is a viable treatment option in cases of intrusion and subgingival fractures. It is conservative treatment with an extremely favorable prognosis.
  • Management of traumatic injury requires a multidisciplinary approach.
