Abstract
Orthodontic cases managed by extraction of maxillary central incisors are very uncommon, but certain conditions necessitate their extraction. This article reports a case of adolescent boy with a history of trauma to the maxillary incisors. The patient was treated with extraction of both the maxillary central incisors followed by space closure and lateral incisors substituting for central incisors.

Keywords: Maxillary central incisors extraction, Maxillary lateral incisors, Orthodontic replacement, Space closure
