A Partial denture is a problematic foreign body with high morbidity associated with removal. This is due to presence of sharp and curved clasp which can easily pierce and embed into the soft tissue. Any overzealous and forcible attempt at removal can lead to rupture of the hollow organ like Oesophagus with a fatal outcome. Endoscopic removal of Denture must be attempted only in the Operation theatre. Excellent Anaesthesia and good visualization of the foreign body are mandatory for successful removal. Attempt must be made with a sound understanding of the shape of the denture and location of its embedding, forcible extrication without vision is never to be undertaken.
