Abstract: In cases of horizontally impacted and dilacerated maxillary central incisors where alignment is attempted, treatment is often prolonged, and achieving an optimal result can be uncertain. We present a case of bilateral horizontally impacted maxillary central incisors lying against the nasal floor, associated with supernumerary teeth, further complicated by a dilaceration, where alignment of the impacted incisors was completed efficiently.

Clinical relevance: To demonstrate an orthodontic case of how impacted dilacerated central incisors at the nasal floor were efficiently aligned.
