Abstract: Dental traumas are reasonably common, especially in children and adolescents. This report describes two cases in which dental fragments were embedded in the lip soft tissue. Radiographs confirmed the presence of this foreign-body, which were surgically removed under a local anesthesia. Early diagnosis and surgical removal of theses fragments could prevent undesirable foreign-body reaction and scarring. The need in such cases for taking routine facial soft tissue radiographs and chest rx-ray before stating treatment is emphasized.
