A dental college hospital in India received a visit from a 7-year-old kid who was complaining about “swelling in his jaw.” When doctors took a closer look, they found something unbelievable. There was a “huge, baglike mass filled with 526 tooth-like structures.” After five hours of surgery, the docs pulled out all the teeth that weren’t supposed to be there.

Postgrads at the college are calling it a “Pandora’s Box of miniature teeth” and “a jewel in (their) crown.”

This is the first ever case to be documented world wide, where so many minute teeth were found in a single individual. This rare lesion is termed as "compound odontome". The expertise and the competence of the team of oral surgeons and oral pathologists in Saveetha Dental College and Hospitals in dealing with such a rare case are to be applauded.
