A dentist in India removed 526 teeth from a seven-year-old boy. He had toothaches. His dentist found hundreds of teeth in his jaw. Dentist Pratibha Ramani said the teeth were all different sizes. They were from 0.1mm to 3mm. They all had a crown, enamel and a root. The boy had a very rare dental problem.
The operation took over five hours. Ms Ramani said she drilled into the jaw to make a window to remove the teeth. She said the teeth were very small. The boy had counseling before his surgery. His counseling team was good at talking to children. The boy now has 21 teeth. He is doing well and has no more toothache.
