Man grows a Tooth in the nose

A 59-year-old Dane suffered from a clogged nose. At first Doctors suspected a Tumor. But then it turned out: a Tooth had grown into the nose.

Strange mass in the nasal cavity

The science magazine “The MMJ” writes. A Dane suffered from a milky discharge from one nostril, his sense of smell was limited, and his nose bent. However, it was not a sinus infection In the nasal cavity, Doctors discovered a mass they thought was a Tumor or a cyst. Only after many studies, it has turned out: In the nose grew a Tooth. This was pulled.

Extremely rare phenomenon

0.1 percent up to a maximum of one percent, the probability that a Tooth is growing in a nostril. Between 1959 and 2008, only 23 cases are globally known.

The Operation is successful

The Doctors pulled the Tooth. The man was ten days in the hospital, took antibiotics and got a nasal rinse with a saline solution. Three weeks after the OP he’s fine again.

Life Is A Long Nose Teeth

The man had life, the intranasal Tooth is probably the longest period of his. Only after many years the symptoms appeared.

Symptom Is Bleeding From The Nose

The American Journal of Case Reports reported in 2014, of a similar case. A young man from Saudi Arabia grew at the time, a Tooth in the nasal cavity. To the doctor he was gone, because he suffered from frequent bleeding under the nose.

Other teeth perfectly

The ear, nose and throat doctor called a dentist, and said that the Tooth needed to be pulled. This was achieved, as in the case of the Danes, without any problems. The Dentition of the young Arab was otherwise flawless.

Additional Teeth

Supernumerary teeth are not in humans and in other animals too rare. Additional teeth up to three percent of all Germans. The technical term is Hyperdontie. However, most of the additional teeth grow in the mouth.

232 teeth

The majority of people with supernumerary teeth, three of which grow to a maximum of. If there is no space for more than the normal 32 teeth, needs surgery. The record was a young Indian. Came to the dentist because his cheek was swollen. In the jaw bone, the tooth doctors found 232 extra teeth.

Where does the dental income?

Dental surplus is not researched like other bizarre diseases completely. Some scientists suspect that the growth of the tooth-tooth bar could germs columns, and then too many teeth grow. This happened already in the foetus. Other researchers suspect a gene mutation.

Deformed Teeth

Too many teeth so that the Teeth will be deformed, because the teeth have too little room. So ingrown teeth cause other teeth damage. Children with cleft lip and palate columns, for example, supernumerary teeth often have.

The nose can bleed indicate a serious disease

A Tooth in the nose resulted in the young Arabs to recurrent nosebleeds. Nose bleed can be fixed by a foreign body. In the case of regular nosebleeds, you should clarify the cause with a doctor, even if it is very unlikely that you have a nose to create tooth. (Dr. Utz Anhalt)
