Doctors have pulled out 526¬†teeth¬†from a seven-year-old boy’s mouth in a world first after he complained that his mouth hurt.

The boy called Ravindran, who only goes by one name, was admitted to a private hospital after suffering severe pain and swelling in his jaw.

His parents, dad Parbhu, 40, and mum Rajakumari, 33, feared that he had cancer in his jaw when they took him to Saveetha Dental College in Chennai in southern India.

But medics were stunned after they performed a CT Scan and X-ray and found a large lesion in the boy’s mouth that was filled with hundreds of teeth.
