OBJECTIVE: To find out the frequency of intrusive luxation in potential orthodontic patients with increased over-jet.
METHODOLOGY:Total 50 orthodontic patients having permanent dentition with increased overjet was included in the study
and were examined in OPD as per selection criteria. The patients were examined for the presence of intrusive luxation of upper
front teeth as per defined criteria.
STUDY DESIGN:A Cross Sectional Study.
SETTING: Orthodontic Center of Rashid Latif Dental College, Lahore
DURATION: January 2021 to June 2023
RESULTS: The results showed that frequency of traumatic upper maxillary incisors intrusive luxation was found to be 3%,
out of which 80% were females and 20% were males.
CONCLUSION: There is increased frequency of traumatic upper maxillary incisors intrusive luxation in orthodontic patients
having increased over-jet. 
KEYWORDS: Intrusive luxation; Orthodontic repositioning, Re-eruption; Orthodontic extrusion.
