Impaction of a central maxillary incisor is relatively rare and, consequently, poses all the more problems to the diagnosing practitioner. The etiology, when known, can implicate the presence of an obstacle hindering eruption or a trauma to the temporary dentition.

When confronted with this anomaly, the practitioner should determine the precise position of the unerupted tooth and offer a customized treatment protocol. Whenever possible, orthodontic-surgical placement on the arch is the solution of choice.

These different requirements must form part of a customized multidisciplinary treatment strategy.
