Introduction: The occurrence of tooth injuries during childhood is common, about a third of children in primary dentition suffer from dental trauma. Proper treatment of dental trauma in primary dentition prevents pain and the successor tooth germ from being affected. Objective and case report: The objective of this report was to describe the case of a 5-year-old child who sought treatment at the Specialized Trauma Center in Dentistry of Maringá, Universidade Estadual de Maringá (UEM), three days after traumatic injury that caused severe intrusion of tooth #62 and avulsion of tooth #61. After four months, we observed complete spontaneous eruption of the intruded tooth. As for avulsion of tooth #61, it was decided not to replant it, so as not to injure the permanent tooth germ, and wait for its eruption. As regards tooth #62, it was decided to wait for spontaneous eruption, monitoring it periodically through clinical and radiographic examination until it fully erupted.
