In a rare surgery performed at the Saveetha Dental College in Chennai, doctors extracted an astounding 526 teeth from the mouth of a seven-year-old boy. Suffering from a rare condition called ‘compound composite ondontome’, the boy was brought to the hospital with a swelling in his lower right jaw. It took five long hours for the doctors to remove all the minute teeth. According to the doctors, this is the first-ever case documented in the world in which in an individual has been found to have so many minute teeth.
