A case report of treatment for an incompletely erupted maxillary central incisor with crown dilaceration in a 12-year-old boy is described. The tooth was repositioned with surgical extrusion and endodontically treated through use of calcium hydroxide paste. Clinical and radiographic examination 2 years after completion of combined surgical and endodontic treatment revealed periapical healing and no signs of root resorption.
