Rights and Permissions

This paper describes the successful alignment of a horizontally impacted maxillary central incisor positioned high in the vestibule, in a 15-year-old girl, by purely orthodontic means. A unique and innovative technique for traction was employed so as to cause minimal injury to the neighboring soft tissue. The article is a step forward in establishing the predictability of orthodontic alignment in management of such cases, which may become the method of choice over extractions or surgical repositionings.
