Trauma to maxillofacial region usually leads to damage to teeth and supporting structures. Damage to teeth can occur in isolation or with soft tissue and sometimes may even involve bone. Facial trauma may cause dental fragment embedded in surrounding tissue and that may go unnoticed if not properly examined. Here, we report a case of lip swelling and tenderness caused due to an embedded tooth fragment. The tooth fragment got impacted in the lower lip due to facial trauma 5 months back. Diagnosis was based on clinical history and conventional radiograph. The tooth fragment was successfully removed without any complication.
