|Abstract:||This article describes a child patient who initially had inadequate treatment and suffered concomitant soft tissue trauma involving complete displacement of a primary central incisor into the lip tissue. The primary tooth was subsequently removed by surgery under general anesthesia. Despite the delay in diagnosis, there was an excellent outcome following removal of the embedded tooth. This paper again emphasizes the importance of an accurate history, physical, and radiographic evaluation of these patients in the acute phase. The importance of soft tissue inspection even in cases that are presented late for dental trauma management is also highlighted. This case shows that educated emergency room staff preferably including an oral and maxillofacial surgeon is required for a proper emergency management in orofacial traumas.|
