After gently cleansing the teeth they were replaced in the alveoli orthodontic buttons and elastics were place.

Unfortunately the client did not do such a good job on returning on time and represented 4 months later at which time root canal therapy was done on the canines (the frx incisor was repaired with vial pulpotomy on the initial visit).
