Transposition is a rare developmental disturbance of tooth order characterized by positional interchange of the two teeth. Transposition with adjacent tooth is very common but transposition with distant tooth is very rare. Early diagnosis of incomplete transposition during mixed dentition period intercepts the problem and prevents the developing complete transposition. The purpose of this paper was to present the advantage of early management of a rarely encountered transposition anomaly involving the mandibular permanent lateral incisor and the first premolar.
