Maxillary central incisor plays an important role in dental as well as facial esthetics. That is why the treatment of impacted central incisor is challenging for clinicians. This is a case report of 19 years old female with an impacted central incisor along with an impacted supernumerary tooth. The impacted supernumerary tooth was an obstacle for the natural eruption of the permanent central incisor which was surgically removed and the impacted tooth was brought into the occlusion by closed forced eruption technique.
