“The patient had visited us five days ago with abscess in upper jaw,” Dr. Maheshwari said to The Times of India. “Upon medical investigations, it was diagnosed a case of odontoma. We planned the surgery and removed 80 teeth after clearing abscess, which is rare in tender age.”

The Independent notes that the boy’s condition, odontoma, is a rare type of tumor that affects the jaw or gums that build up teeth-like structures.
