The purpose of this case report is to present the management of an impacted permanent mandibular left central incisor using a removable appliance. A minor surgery was done to expose the tooth crown and bond an orthodontic button. The removable appliance was used to apply extrusion forces to the impacted tooth. Over a course of six months, the tooth was fully erupted. To recover the lost space of the primary canine, a fixed appliance was bonded on the mandibular arch and retention was placed until the permanent canine erupted. This report demonstrates the importance of early diagnosis and interceptive treatment in cases of tooth impaction.
