Doctors do a physical count of the teeth removed from the jaw of the seven year-old boy

In the world’s first case, around 526 teeth of varying sizes were extracted from a seven-year-old boy’s right lower jaw in a five-hour surgery carried out by doctors in the Indian city of Chennai.

According to Press Trust of India, the doctors claim it was the world’s first case in which such a large number of teeth were found and extracted from a single site.

Dr. Pratibha Ramani, Head of Department of oral and maxillofacial pathology at the Saveetha Dental College and Hospital, a private hospital and college, stated that the boy was brought to the hospital with a complaint of a swelling in the jaw.


All the 526 teeth removed from the seven year-old boy

“The issue was noticed when the child was three years old. It was ignored then as he did not cooperate.. four years later, it took a lot of efforts to convince him for the surgery as the swelling increased,” Ramani told PTI.

Dr Senthilnathan said: “A 4×3 cm tumour was removed from the lower right side of his jaw, after that, we came to know that 526 teeth were present there.”

Though the size varies, we call it teeth because every piece had elements of teeth (enamel and root) in it, she stated.

She said the boy was discharged within three days after surgery.

In 2014, there was a similar case in Mumbai where 232 teeth were extracted from a teenage boy’s mouth.

“This is the first such case in the world where 526 teeth were removed from a single site – right lower jaw.”

Seven pathologists and five surgeons were part of the operation that took five hours, mid-day.com reported. According to the hospital, the surgery, which would have cost between Rs 75,000 and Rs one lakh, was done free of cost under a Tamil Nadu government scheme.

All the 526 teeth were removed? Does it mean he's now toothless? I'd like to see his before and after photos.

Dr. Senthilnathan said the discovery showed it was important to seek treatment for dental issues as early as possible.

Awareness about dental and oral health was improving, he said, though access in rural areas remained problematic.

"Earlier, things like not as many dentists, lack of education, poverty meant that there was not as much awareness. These problems are still there.

"You can see people in cities have better awareness but people who are in rural areas are not as educated or able to afford good dental health."

In Ravindrath's case, all has turned out well; the boy now has a healthy count of 21 teeth, Dr. Senthilnathan said.

I'd still like to see actual photos though, not just x-ray photographs. His parents probably declined for his photos to be taken to protect his privacy
