& # 39; The bag, weighing approximately 200 g, was carefully removed. & # 39; The surgeon, whose first name is unknown, said the denticles were of different sizes.

But a similar case in 2014, when a 17-year-old had removed 232 denticles, it accused composite odontoma.

These strange masses are made from tissues in teeth, including enamel, dentin, pulp, and cement.

& # 39; They looked like pearls in an oyster. Even the smallest piece had a crown, carrot and enamel layer like a tooth. & # 39;

According to local reports Dr. Ramani adds: & # 39; We have never seen so many teeth on one site. & # 39; His original teeth were left alone.
