Abstract

Lateral luxation is defined as the displacement of the tooth in a direction other than axially. The present case report narrates management of laterally luxated primary maxillary central incisor with occlusal interference using an inclined plane fabricated with composite resin. The composite resin inclined plane was successfully used for correction of cross-bite caused due to lateral luxation particularly in delayed presentation of the case to the Pedodontics clinic after traumatic injury with occlusal interference.
