  Abstract 

We present a case of swelling in the right submandibular and sublingual space caused by displacement of a lower third molar tooth fragment in the submandibular space. This displacement was not recognised at the time of extraction or even on review. The techniques used to minimise the risk of accidental displacement of teeth and roots, during surgical extraction are discussed. The importance of recognising this complication and methods of retrieval are highlighted.
