Case Study
A male child, 7 ½ years old reported to the Dept. of Pedodontics with rotated maxillary left permanent central incisor and an unerupted 'Mesiodens'. The case was treated by surgical removal of the supernumerary tooth along with surgical correction (through intra alveolar traction) of the rotated incisor followed by its immobilization through passive splinting. Post operative clinical and periodic radiographic follow-up reveals favorable prognosis in terms of vitality and stability of the tooth with normal physiological root development.
