Abstract

Traumatic injuries to maxillary anterior teeth while playing are common in children and adolescents. Sequelae of such trauma include broken, lost, aspirated, and swallowed tooth. At times, the broken tooth fragments get embedded in the adjoining soft tissue and frequently get neglected during diagnosis. The present case report discusses the case of a 13-year-old adolescent who had broken tooth fragment emerged in the lower lip and its surgical excision to prevent detrimental reactions and scarring.
