Abstract The aim of the present study was to describe and discuss the gamut of current diagnostic and therapeutic modalities regarding impacted foreign bodies in the head and neck region, addressing xeroradiography, magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and ultrasonography as diagnostic aids and stressing the importance of a multidisciplinary team in the treatment of such injuries. Considerations are also offered on the different types and forms of presentation of foreign bodies that may be impacted in the maxillofacial region and specific treatment methods.
