Foreign objects are often diagnosed unexpectedly during a dental treatment. The occurrence of foreign bodies in teeth is more frequent in children, as they have a tendency to place objects in mouth. Food lodgement in carious involved teeth also lead to object lodgement as patients tends to clean it with sharp objects. The foreign objects act as foci of infection and leads to pulpal pathosis. This case report discusses the foreign body impaction in a tooth, its retrieval and management of the involved teeth.
