Foreign body impaction in the maxillofacial region: A case report
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Ruchika Gupta Dewan and Dr. Unnavi Chauhan
ABSTRACT:This article describes the presence of foreign bodies which are asymptomatic in nature in the orofacial soft tissue spaces. The patient had reported to the Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics with sensitivity as the chief complain in the lower right back tooth region. Clinical Examination were suggestive of generalised attrition in relation to #46. Radiographic findings revealed a well defined radio-opacity in relation to distal root of #46. This radiolucency was seen to have moved to the mesial root when another radiograph of the same tooth was taken. An orthopantomograph and CBCT was then taken to study the case better which apparently showed around 12 such radio-opacities lodged in the oral cavity with the patient being absolutely asymptomatic of it. The provisional diagnosis of foreign bodies embedded in the soft tissue was considered.
