Extrusive Luxation

  • Reposition tooth
  • Follow up within 24hr for stabilization
  • Temporizing measure: Periodontal pack in which tooth is bonded to its two neighboring teeth on both sides

Lateral Luxation

  • More extensive injury than extrusive luxation
    • Associated with cracking or fracture of the surrounding alveolar bone
  • Attempt repositioning of tooth
  • Apply temporary splinting with periodontal dressing
  • Follow up within 24hr for stabilization

Intrusive Luxation

  • Most serious because of significant damage to alveolar socket and periodontal ligament
  • Allow tooth to erupt on its own
