|Abstract:||Oesophageal foreign bodies occur commonly, but dentures are swallowed infrequently. Two cases are reported that demonstrate the difficulties in the localization and retrieval of ingested dentures, because they are radiolucent and have an awkward shape. Early rigid oesophagoscopy is recommended as the most appropriate investigation and method of removal.|
