Dento-alveolar trauma with avulsion is common in anterior maxillary region and these injuries are very challenging to manage in young adolescent because of dynamic state of the alveolar and dental development, occlusion and facial growth. The present case report reveals management of dento-alveolar trauma along with missing avulsed tooth and complicated crown fractures of adjacent teeth in esthetically conscious young adolescent with implant supported restoration. Patient was non-compliant and had parafunction which subjected the removable partial denture and resin bonded bridge to repeated failures. However, because of non-compliance, patient's occlusion and high esthetic demands, implant was considered as treatment option at early age which produced not only a functional and esthetic outcome but a satisfied patient as well.
