Traumatic dental injuries form a major number of patients reporting for emergency dental care. Simple household injuries to major road traffic accidents can lead to traumatic injuries of teeth in adults. Often, these injuries affect the social and psychological status of the patient. Managing dental trauma is never the same and it always presents a challenge to dentists due to varied presentations and results. This case report aims to highlight the importance of strictly following the guidelines under stringent infection control measures to achieve predictable success.
