Traumatic dental injuries are a trivial dental issue affecting teeth and their supporting structures. This case report describes a clinical case of dental trauma in an 18 year old girl which resulted in laceration of upper lip along with affecting the dentition in the form of lateral luxation, subluxation, uncomplicated and complicated crown fracture in her anterior maxillary and mandibular dentition. The management included suturing of laceration followed by repositioning of teeth by digital pressure and stabilization of teeth with the help of a semi rigid splint, root canal treatment for tooth 11, 21 and 31 followed by removal of splint when the teeth were reportedly asymptomatic and composite build up to re-establish the aesthetics for the patient. The follow up was done up to 1 year and no periapical pathology or complications were observed and the patient was relatively asymptomatic thus indicating successful intervention.
