Trauma to the maxillary central incisors is the most common of all dental injuries. Here we are presenting a case of trauma to the maxillary anterior region while playing football. The patient had dentoalveolar fracture and extrusion of the upper central incisors out of their sockets. The upper central incisors of this patient prior to the trauma were proclined and with inadequate lip coverage. In this report we are highlighting the significance of teeth proclination and lip coverage in the predisposition to injury. Proclined anterior teeth with inadequate lip coverage have to be corrected by orthodontic treatment, especially in individuals involved in contact sports.
