Abstract

Trauma to immature teeth at younger age may result in number of developmental anomalies. Aberrant root development is a rare developmental anomaly reported in the literature thus far. A case of extrusive luxation of immature young permanent central incisor is presented which was repositioned and splinted using suture and semi-rigid wire composite splint. The luxated tooth showed almost complete root development till the root apex. Radiographic and clinical evaluation was done at regular intervals. This case report highlights the management of severely extruded immature young permanent tooth and ability of Hertwig\'s epithelial root sheath (HERS) to withstand the trauma effects and helps in root development.
