The treatment of ankylosed incisor is challenging for orthodontists, necessitating accurate diagnosis, well-considered treatment planning, and close collaboration among interdisciplinary teams to achieve favorable esthetic and periodontal outcomes. For ankylosed cases, accurate diagnosis depends on detailed clinical examination and 3D radiographic images. This case report described the treatment of a bimaxillary protrusive female with an ankylosed maxillary left central incisor. The decision regarding treatment was based on the severity of dental ankylosis and replacement root resorption. Each treatment plan comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. In this case, the decoronation treatment plan and prosthesis was implemented, resulting in favorable anterior esthetics. The protrusive profile significantly improved, after anterior teeth retraction successfully. Detailed progress and discussions will be illustrated in this case report.
