This report presents a case of intrusive luxation of immature maxillary central incisors with concomitant uncomplicated crown fractures in an 8-year-old boy. The intruded teeth with open apices were repositioned with surgical extrusion and endodontically treated through use of calcium hydroxide paste. Six months after initiation of apexification, definitive apical stops had formed. The canals were then permanently obturated, and the crowns were restored with composite resin. Clinical and radiographic examination 24 months after the surgical extrusion revealed satisfactory apical healing and healthy supporting tissues.
