Abstract: The most important question to the clinician is whether it is warranted to extract a single lower incisor in borderline cases. In the present case report, in order to resolve the minor crowding, a lingually placed lower incisor has been extracted and also the soft tissue profile was maintained. Lower incisor extraction is indicated in the carefully selected cases,especially where space requirement do not call for greater dento-alveolar movement.
