Maxillary incisors and canine, often referred to as the social six are most prominent teeth in an individual's teeth. Impaction of maxillary central incisors are less frequently than third molars and canines because of several contributing factors. Treatment of impacted teeth requires a combined orthodontic and surgical perspective. In the presented case we have used Closed-eruption technique combined with alteration in biomechanics and this had resulted in good long-term esthetic results.
