Intrusive luxation is defined as dislocation of tooth into the alveolar process that causes damage to pulp and surrounding structures of tooth. As a consequence of this type of injury, maximum damage occurs to the pulp and all the supporting structures. This case report presents the case of surgical removal of a severely intruded Type III maxillary primary lateral incisor due to trauma. A 5-year-old boy was referred to the clinic 1 day after a fall. Clinical and radiographic examinations suggested severe Type III intrusive luxation of the right primary lateral incisor. The intruded tooth was removed surgically under local anesthesia after a follow-up period of 2 months. Antibiotic therapy was initiated at the time of surgery and maintained for 5 days. The postoperative healing was uncomplicated, with both clinical and radiographic success after 3 months of follow up.
