A case report of a patient who had lost her maxillary permanent left central incisor, left cuspid and left first premolar teeth due to a cyst operation, is presented. The maxillary permanent left lateral incisor was in horizontal position high in the vestibule. She was treated with removable and fixed orthodontic appliances. The lateral incisor was uprighted and brought into its normal position in the dental arch. For aesthetics and function missing teeth were replaced with a specially designed prosthesis.
