Cases of negligence in orthodontics are not as frequent as in other dental or medical specialties. However, sometimes we come across a case of negligence that cannot be ignored. Here, we present a very uncommon finding of a molar tube embedded in the labial vestibule, between mandibular central and lateral incisors, for more than a month. The uniqueness of this finding is that a molar tube, as the name suggests, is supposed to be bonded on molars and if it gets dislodged due to any reason, it should have been embedded near the respective molar. With this dilemma in mind, this case offers many things to learn from errors.
