Doctors have extracted an astounding 526 teeth from the mouth of a seven-year-old boy in a rare surgery performed at the city’s Saveetha Dental College and Hospital, doctors said.
Suffering from a rare case of “Compound Composite Ondontoma”, the boy was brought to the hospital with a swelling in his lower right jaw.
“The parents first noticed the swelling when the boy was three years old. But they didn’t bother much as the swelling wasn’t much then and the boy did not cooperate with investigative procedures either.”
