The occurrence of combined injury involving both extrusion and lower lip injury is extremely rare. A simple review of the medical literature shows that no article up to this date has reported the prevalence of the both the injuries in mandible. And an ideal treatment of this type of dental trauma is not well established. Hence, our objective is to relate several challenges that the professional might have to deal with. In this case report, extruded 41 was replanted after 6 h and lower lip tear crossing vermilion border and extending 2 mm involving skin. The repositioned extruded teeth did not demonstrate ankylosis, lower lip healed with minimum scar. Proper treatment planning and follow-up care can lead to a successful outcome.
