Abstract: This article considers a possible solution to prevent or manage spontaneous alveolar bone growth in ankylosed, infraoccluded teeth in adolescents after elective decoronation, allowing replacement resorption to take place, preserving the surrounding alveolar bone and enabling vertical bone development coronal to the decoronated segment.

Clinical relevance: To illustrate the advantages of decoronation allowing subsequent replacement of infraoccluded ankylosed teeth with implant-retained restorations and minimal aesthetic compromise.
