Impaction of primary anterior teeth is very rare. A tooth that fails to erupt into normal functional position by the time it normally should is considered impacted. A rare case of impacted dilacerated maxillary primary incisors in a 3-year-old child is presented. The diagnostic position of impacted primary incisors was determined using conical beam computed tomography (CBCT) to assist in surgical intervention with least surgical trauma to the tissues.
