Clinically missing or unerupted permanent teeth manifest in early childhood itself, yet they may be misdiagnosed or left untreated due to the lack of knowledge or experience, which might have a major impact on facial esthetics and psychological aspect of the individual. Physical obstruction is the primary local cause for delayed tooth eruption. These obstacles can be due to the presence of supernumerary teeth, mucosal barrier, scar tissue, and tumors. The procurement of conventional radiographs is restricted with the advent of cone-beam computed tomography which is considered as a best tool in an localizing impacted tooth in the field of dentistry. The present case report depicts a 2-year follow-up of a horizontally impacted maxillary permanent central incisor associated with odontoma that was surgically reimplanted successfully.
