A team of oral and maxillofacial surgeons of Nishtar Institute of Dentistry, in Multan, pulled out 252 teeth from the maxilla of a 14 year old boy. The team was headed by Dr Saima Munir, Dr Sohail Fareed, Dr Khalil Ahmed, Dr Faizan Virk, Dr Ayesha Gull, Dr Fishan Ali, and Dr Muzammil who performed stepwise surgery at Nishtar Hospital, Multan.
The boy was suffering from Complex Odontoma and had hundreds of teeth in his maxilla and mandible. In the first step, surgery was performed on the maxilla alone, from where 252 teeth were extracted; mandibular surgery will be done in the next step after healing of maxilla.
In previous literature, there is record of 232 teeth being extracted from a 17yr old boy’s mouth, in India.
