But a thoughtful analysis in such cases looking at the possible aetiology may save the complexity of therapy. The present case demonstrates the importance of correct diagnosis in resolving impaction wherein an impacted mandibular second premolar was made to erupt using a simple removable appliance 8 years after its normal range of eruption timing.
