An impacted incisor with dilaceration poses a clinical dilemma because of its difficult position. This case report describes the orthodontic management of impacted dilacerated maxillary left central incisor. Based on esthetic demand and patient compliance, orthodontic traction involving closed eruption technique was performed to achieve alignment of central incisor in the arch. Prudent application of biomechanics and radiographic evaluation at regular interval assisted in achieving good esthetic and patient satisfaction.
