Background: Luxation dental injuries are considered a severe form of traumatic dental injury (TDI) due to several factors. International association of dental traumatology (IADT) has suggested various treatment approaches for suitable clinical conditions of the injured tooth and other factors. Case Report: The current article presents a case report of the successful and effective clinical management of luxated permanent incisors in an adolescent patient’s traumatic occlusion (dental trauma-induced crossbite relation) by employing single-arch fixed orthodontic therapy with light forces using Nickel-Titanium (NiTi) archwire. Conclusion: Lateral luxation injuries with traumatic occlusion (locked position of involved teeth) can be effectively repositioned by orthodontic traction using light orthodontic forces of NiTi archwire, particularly in patients who seek dental treatment after a few days of a TDI event.
