Hello doctor,

I have swallowed my dental cap while eating. What do I do now? I am very scared.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Firstly, I would like to know, are you sure that you swallowed it? Because, sometimes we just lose it while rinsing the mouth too.
  • How many hours back did you swallow it?
  • Are you having any breathing difficulty or a stomach pain? In case it was stuck somewhere in your throat, you would have had a difficulty in breathing, immediately after swallowing the cap.
  • You need not worry much as it should get excreted out soon.
  • Just stay relaxed and in case you have any difficulty eating or breathing, just visit the nearest hospital as soon as possible.

Hope it helps you.
