I swallowed my dental bridge 3 days ago and have not passed

Customer Question

I swallowed my dental bridge 3 days ago and have not passed it. I am not in any pain but am bloated and nauseated periodically. Should I go to the hospital?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Dental bridge is likely stuck in your intestine and can cause sudden intestinal obstruction.
It should have passed by now and that is concerning.
You may develop sudden symptoms without warning.
Hence, it is better to go to the hospital and get a scan to find out its location.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
