Management of swallowed dentures involves a multidisciplinary approach. The diagnosis of ingested dentures can be challenging, requiring awareness of different specialists including dentists, gastroenterologists, surgeons, otolaryngologists, anesthesiologists, etc. This case series presents three cases of swallowed removable partial dentures. The first case is a 65-year-old female with a denture transversely impacted between the walls of the esophagus. The second and third case is accidental ingestion of removable prosthesis during swallowing. The dentures were retrieved with the help of a multidisciplinary team approach. The case series aims to spread awareness among the geriatric and general population on the safety aspect of the usage of dentures.
