Study Design: A case report. Objective: To identify the problems and solutions of the treatment of foreign body trauma in the maxillofacial region. Methods: Two cases of foreign body trauma patients include physical examination findings, radiological images and follow-up was documented to find out the after effect of residual part and treatment outcomes. Result: Both patients received treatment immediately after injury. But few months later complications arise due to the remnant of foreign body. In case of first patient location was not suitable for USG and radiology also unsuccessful to notice the presence of foreign body. In case of 2nd patient need further treatment after initial management. Conclusion: Causes for the remnant of foreign body during first steps of management are bleeding, proximity to the vital structures, and hiding in the spaces created by multiple fascia layers in the oro-facial region and causes late complications like swelling, trismus, discharging sinuses, etc. Radiological imaging sometimes fails to detect the presence and position of remnants. So further treatment is very difficult for the surgeon.
