An anomaly in the eruption path of anterior 
teeth can interfere with facial aesthetics and cause the 
impaction of these teeth. The frequency of maxillary 
incisor impaction ranges from 0.06% to 0.2%. The 
most common causes of impaction of anterior teeth 
seem to be odontoma, supernumerary teeth, and loss 
of space. This case report presents the orthodontic 
treatment of an impacted maxillary central incisor 
caused by a supernumerary tooth located in the 
eruption path of the impacted tooth. After the 
extraction of supernumerary tooth, the patient was 
checked for 8 months wheather impacted maxillary 
central erupted spontaneously or not, and then 
present maloclusions were orthodontically treated. It 
was detected in the radiographs that impacted 
maxillary central erupted spontaneously. Hence, the 
patient was treated without the need for a surgery 
operation which can effect facial aesthetic negatively.
