INDIA–A little boy in India had to have 526 teeth removed from his jaw.

The boy had experienced swelling in his jaw for several years. Radiological examinations revealed a mass containing hundreds of miniature teeth.

It took surgeons 5 hours to remove the teeth, ranging in size from one millimeter to 15 millimeters.

Each resembled a tiny tooth with a crown and root-like structure.

The Saveetha Dental College says this is the first case like this to be documented worldwide.

The little boy is doing just fine now.
