Socket sclerosis is usually asymptomatic and does not require any treatment. The only potential complication arises during orthodontic treatment, wherein a sclerosed socket of the premolars may be an obstacle in closing spaces by movement of teeth through the extraction space. This article demonstrates the problems encountered during the orthodontic treatment of a 20-year-old woman with socket sclerosis and the treatment strategy employed to overcome the same.
