Accidental ingestion or aspiration of a variety of foreign bodies is a common pediatric emergency. A foreign body in the tooth, however, is rare. Retrieval of foreign objects from the teeth in children is a challenging aspect of pediatric dental practice. In most of the situations, the foreign objects are diagnosed in routine radiographs, which play a vital role in analyzing the location, size, and type of the foreign object. Removal of the foreign body is not very difficult if it is confined to the pulp chamber or root canal. This article describes two cases of foreign object embedded in the teeth, the possible etiology, and treatment.
