The intrusive luxation, one of the worst types of dental trauma, often leads to missing teeth, thereby affecting aesthetics and health. Clinical treatments should be based on the developmental stage of tooth roots and the degree of intrusion. Three treatment options, including re-eruption, orthodontic repositioning, and surgical repositioning, are commonly chosen by children and parents. The main complications including pulp necrosis, root resorption, marginal bone resorption and pulp canal obliteration. Additionally, minimizing the occurrence of complications and adverse effects is the main purpose of the treatment in young permanent tooth trauma. The incidence and the prognosis of complications, including pulp necrosis and root resorption, should be learned and reviewed regularly to perform the appropriate management early in the occurrence of complications. This article reviews the handling strategies and the postoperative complications of intrusive luxation of young permanent teeth.

Key words: intrusive luxation, treatment, young permanent teeth, pulp necrosis, root resorption
