Trauma to the oral soft tissues such as tongue, mucosa, lips occur coz of any injury to the dentition. Traumatic dental injuries (TDI) represent one of the most common oral health problems requiring emergency management. Clinicians and primary health centre workers should be aware of the chances of inclusion of a fractured tooth fragment in any soft tissue of the orofacial region and the management protocol for the same. This paper reports a case of TDI where the fractured tooth fragment caused trauma to the tongue.
