A 11-year-old girl came with her grandmother due to her impacted maxillary incisor. She was suggested to receive orthodontic treatment while having routine oral examination at school. After orthodontic examination & evaluation, skeletal Class III jaw relation with orthodivergent facial pattern, Class III malocclusion and impacted maxillary central incisor was diagnosed. After full mouth fixed edgewise orthodontic guiding treatment and surgical closed eruption of the impacted incisor, the maxillary central incisor was moved into a proper position. Angle Class I molar relation, acceptable overbite and overjet and well-aligned dentition was also achieved. The total treatment period was 35 months.
