One seven-year-old boy from India visited the dentist due to jaw pain, and the reason behind his aches undoubtedly shocked everyone within the vicinity: he had 526 teeth.
Losing 526 teeth as a kid could either be the ultimate horror story or a dream come true! On the plus side, you would receive a lot of coins from the tooth fairy. On the downside, well, you would have to deal with losing 526 teeth.
One seven-year-old boy from India stopped by Saveetha Dental College and Hospital due to immense pain in his jaw (no doubt). Upon investigation, dentists discovered that the boy had 526 teeth.
For the most part, unless if you lose a tooth from injury or sport, adults have 32 teeth. Math shows that the poor boy from India had 494 extra chompers. Can you imagine the pain the boy went through? We can’t either.
So why did it take his parents so long to take him to the hospital? He obviously didn’t grow 400 plus teeth overnight. Well, it turns out that the boy’s jaw started swelling when he was three, but he refused to go to the hospital.
Do you want to see an X-ray of the boy’s mouth before he got his teeth removed? Take a look at our video for fascinating (and somewhat disturbing) pictures of the boy’s mouth before his X-ray, and the lovely design the dentists created with the removed teeth!
