Managing trauma to anterior teeth in children is a challenge for dentists. It can be further complicated by the presence of a foreign body in the root canal which acts as an additional nidus of infection. This foreign body is often diagnosed accidentally after radiographic evaluation. Thorough and careful clinical and radiographic assessments are required for complete retrieval of foreign body without much damage to the tooth structure. This paper presents a case series of two case reports where successful complete retrieval of foreign objects was performed from the root canals of permanent incisors followed by esthetic management of the involved teeth.
