This report describes the sequence of events following a traumatic dental injury to primary maxillary anterior teeth of a five-year old male during a bicycle accident. The development of the affected teeth during the subsequent ten years was studied from the radiographic records. A detailed account of the clinical and radiographic findings as well as the physio-pathologic changes that have taken place is discussed. In view of the inevitable prognosis of dentitions that sustain traumatic injury during the formative years preventive measures and feasible dental management are proposed. These precautionary measures are aimed to circumvent the sequelae that were experienced in the present case, and avoid predictable complications.
