This case report describes an approach using orthodontic forced eruption to facilitate prosthetic restoration of a mid –crown fractured maxillary permanent right lateral incisor. A 24-year-old male patient presented at the due to pain and unesthetic appareance and for management of a fractured maxillary right lateral incisor tooth. Intraoral examination revealed that the maxillary right lateral incisor had sustained a mid crown fracture with pulp exposure and fractured lingual cusp. We treated the tooth endodontically and performed orthodontic root extrusion with a modified Hawley appliance prior to prosthetic rehabilitation. Approximately 3 mm of extrusion of the tooth was obtained within 4 weeks. A fiber post was then inserted into the root canal, and final restoration was completed with an all-ceramic crown. Follow-up 8 months after treatment revealed good periodontal health, esthetics and normal function.
