Foreign body in the mandibular buccal sulcus: A case report
AUTHOR(S): Akhilesh Verma, Smit Singla and Sameer Ahmed
ABSTRACT:Foreign bodies may enter the body either by the traumatic injury or accident such as battle fight road traffic accidents or iatrogenically. Proper case history, clinical and radiographic examination help us to conclude the size depth of penetration and the precise location of foreign body and are benificial to plan its retrieval under local or general anesthesia. It is more common to find this situation in children as it is a well-known fact that children often tend to have the habit of placing foreign objects in the mouth. These foreign objects usually act as source of risk of infection and may later lead to a painful condition. This paper discusses the presence of unusual foreign bodies and brief about their management.
