Abstract

The introduction of gas into soft tissues during dental procedures has been recognized since 1900. Cases of subcutaneous facial emphysema characterized by rapidly progressing unilateral facial swelling have been reported. To our knowledge localized sublingual emphysema without facial involvement after a dental procedure has not been reported. We present two cases of sublingual emphysema, and discuss the etiology and potential hazards of this syndrome.
