Dr. Meet Ramatri of Gujarat, said that the baby, Prayan Sharma, was born with 7 fully grown teeth in his mouth.

After the baby had difficulties breastfeeding, his mother, 31-year-old Nikita, went to a pediatrician, who recommended that the teeth should be remove.

The child’s father, 31-year-old Nikita, quickly tracked down a dental surgeon who was willing to operate on an infant.

The boy’s mother and father then went to Ramatri, who is a dental surgeon.

Ramatri noticed that the teeth were loose, and they posed a threat to the baby’s life.

Ramatri was afraid that one of the teeth might fall out and get stuck in the child’s windpipe, causing him to choke to death.

The doctor performed to surgeries, during which he removed the 7 teeth under local anesthesia.

It took just 15 minutes to remove all the teeth.

Ramatri said that he does not know how the surgery would influence the growth of the baby’s adult teeth later in life.
