Abstract Foreign bodies that enter a patient as a result of trauma are contaminated and produce a range of symptoms. We report a case in which radiographic evidence of foreign bodies in the mandible exposed a history involving a gunshot injury to the chin. The patient did not have any major complaints relating to the bullets lodged in his mandible or any symptoms of lead poisoning. These foreign bodies have remained clinically silent for more than 12 years.
