Sažetak

This case study aims to highlight the potential hazards and the management of a patient who ingested a spoon denture. Case report: A 47 years old man attended the Accident and Emergency
Department after accidentally ingesting his poorly fitted denture. Initial management included examination with a laryngoscope under topical anaesthesia and the appropriate films to detect the foreign body (FB). Hospitalisation and rigid oesophagoscopy under general anaesthesia (GA) was required to remove it and recovery was uneventful. Poorly retentive and unstable dentures pose a risk of ingestion or aspiration for patients and therefore should be avoided or temporarily used provided that the necessary measures to improve retention and stability are taken.
