It’s July 2019, and a boy named Ravindranath is on the operating table in a hospital in Chennai, India. The youngster had been complaining of jaw ache for some time, and naturally that had led his parents to get him checked out by professionals. But as dentists take a closer look at the swollen area, they can barely believe their eyes. And what they begin to take out is truly shocking.
Ravindranath’s dental issues had started a few years ago, although initially there may not have been much cause for concern. After all, it’s common for children to complain about toothache from time to time, and a trip to the dentist usually helps rectify any problems.
