Abstract

Foreign bodies in the hard palate have only rarely been documented. This article describes and illustrates a case of foreign material in the hard palate. In the literature, no such 18-month-long period of impaction in the hard palate has been reported. Surprisingly, despite this long period of impaction, the foreign material did not lead to any tissue necrosis or perforation.
