The maxillary central incisors play an important role in smile esthetics. The absence of a central incisor can affect esthetics, phonetics, and function. Permanent maxillary central incisor impaction can occur due to supernumerary teeth, cyst, abnormal tooth bud position, trauma to the deciduous incisor in childhood, etc. The purpose of this article is to discuss maxillary central incisor impaction due to childhood trauma and orthodontic intervention in its management, with an example of a case treated by two-stage surgical exposure and orthodontic traction.
