Saveetha Dental College said: “This is the first-ever case to be documented worldwide, where so many minute teeth were found in a single individual,”
The statement said that the condition is known as “compound odontome,” and that removal of the teeth required five hours of medical procedure. The kid’s parents first carried him to a medical clinic when he was 3 years of age after they saw swelling in his lower right jaw. But the boy did not cooperate with doctors, so his condition went undiagnosed, the dental college said.
A CBS posted a photograph of the teeth that had been expelled from the kid on their Twitter account.
