Conversations with CAPD: Intrusion of Incisors Due to Trauma

In this second clinical conversation with members of the Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (CAPD), Dr. Raymond Lee joins Drs. Jennifer MacLellan and John O'Keefe to talk about the intrusion of incisors due to trauma.

Dr. Lee is a Pediatric Dentist in London, ON and current President of the Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.


  1. Besides avulsions, intrusion is probably the most common, most serious, and the most traumatic periodontal injury to children's teeth.
  2. Following injury to the primary teeth, the greatest concern is the potential injury to the succedaneous teeth. The apex of the primary tooth may encroach on the follicle, which may cause future malformation or deformity, or that little brown spot on a permanent tooth.
