Dentists in India have removed more than 500 teeth from a young boy's mouth after the seven-year-old came in complaining of a sore jaw.

Doctors said it is a unique medical case and a first-of-its-kind.

The rare lesion with teeth was confirmed as being a "compound composite odontoma". "It took five hours to remove all the minute teeth". "Odontomas are benign, meaning noncancerous, and they generally do not grow back once removed", says Colgate's website.

His parents said he had experienced the swelling since he was 3, but when the conditioned worsened, he was brought to the hospital, Dr. P. Senthilnathan, professor at the dental college's Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, and one of two surgeons who operated on the boy, told India's National Herald.

After emptying the sac to confirm its contents, doctors discovered hundreds of teeth, all of different sizes.

"It was reminiscent of pearls in an oyster", a pathologist said in the release.

Responding to queries on the possible use of Local Anesthesia instead of General Anesthesia, Doctors said, "Local anaesthetic is for single tooth removal, whereas a Tumor involves the jaw and we are removing an anatomical part of the body". He was taken to a nearby dentist with a swelling on the right side of his jaw.

Speaking on the probable causes of the tumour, Doctors said, "It is usually believed that it is genetic, but the siblings of the boy do not have this condition".

According to local reports, Dr Ramani added: 'We have never seen these many teeth in any one site.' His original teeth were left alone. He will require molar implants when he turns 16. The teeth, which are not visible outside the mouth, had to be surgically removed.
