The impacted maxillary incisor is detrimental for problems related to esthetics and occlusion in permanent dentition stage. A case with an unerupted maxillary central incisor was diagnosed radiographically with impacted dilacerated maxillary central incisor. The management of the case was carried out surgically and orthodontically. By combining two stages of surgical exposure, orthodontic traction and alignment, the impacted dilacerated incisor was successfully moved into desired position. A two-year follow-up of the stability and periodontal health showed that the tooth placed in the occlusion maintained both esthetics and function.
