Introduction: Supernumerary teeth can be found in any area of the dental arches, being the midline of the maxilla their most frequent location. Retention of permanent anterior teeth can generate esthetic, functional and psychosocial repercussions, including delayed eruption or impaction of permanent teeth, ectopic eruptions, root resorption and formation of cysts. One of the main therapeutic approaches to this problem is surgical orthodontic traction. Description: This paper proposes a clinical approach based on surgical orthodontic traction for a case of permanent maxillary central incisors impacted due to the presence of supernumerary teeth. Conclusions: This technique of surgical traction is used by the majority of orthodontists, because it presents better esthetic and anatomical-functional results at periodontal level at the end of the traction.
