Introduction: Winged maxillary incisors are a well-recognized clinical finding, which can result in psychological trauma to children at growing age. Interceptive treatment is usually carried out in mixed dentition period in order to reduce the severity of a developing malocclusion in future. Case Report: This paper reports a case of 6-years-old female patient with winged maxillary central incisor being treated with derotation technique using the beggs brackets along with nance palatal arch space maintainer. Discussion: The major advantages in carrying out this treatment with fixed brackets are the ease with which the force magnitude and vector can be controlled much more precisely than with a removable appliance, minimal discomfort to the patient and reduces the need for patient co-operation.
