Accidental aspiration or ingestion during dental procedure is a rarely occurring phenomenon. It is considered as a potential health problem worldwide. Aspiration of dental instruments is rare but require immediate management because it can compromise airway. Ingestion although considered less dangerous, it can also lead to complex gastroenterological procedures due to intestinal perforation and obstruction. Here, we present an unusual case of ingestion of a segment of the Erich arch bar measuring about 4 cm during arch bar wiring in a trauma patient having mandibular fracture.
