This case report describes a case of intrusion of the right mature permanent central incisor. After gingivectomy and endodontic treatment with changes of the intracanal dressing (calcium hydroxide paste) every 30 days, spontaneous re-eruption was observed. We conclude that waiting for spontaneous re-eruption associated with gingivectomy and endodontic treatment is an alternative treatment for severe intrusive luxations in mature permanent teeth.
