Ram Kuber Phatak Mumbai Resident Swallowed one of his Denture Along With Vada Pav


Mumbai a 77 years old Consumed one of his Denture while eating Vada Pav. This Incident took place on Friday and person is identified as Ram Kuber Phatak landed onto an operating table with a fake tooth in his own belly. On Friday Phatak was at a roadside food stall on Friday afternoon, munching on a vada pao, when an acrylic tooth attached to the partial denture in his mouth broke off and slid down his food pipe.

As per senior doctor, reports said that an extraction means to have a tooth removed, usually because of disease, trauma or crowding. And the process can be painful. “We found that a tooth was present inside his stomach. Luckily he did not have any cuts or perforations inside his stomach as it was a denture,” said Dr. Shrinivas Chavan, Professor, and HOD of Ears, Nose, and Throat (ENT) department at JJ hospital.

Phatak is currently under supervision in the general ward. For the next 10 days, he will be fed a liquid diet through a tube.Dr. Chavan said, “We have put him on a feeding tube as a precautionary measure.”Usually in such cases, if the denatured tooth goes down from food pipe to other parts of the body like the chest or heart, it causes damage.”

The doctor even told the Free Press Journal that Kuber was complaining of an unbearable stomach ache when brought into the hospital. “In a shocking revelation, he said that he swallowed his tooth while having food. A general inspection led to a conclusion that something was stuck in the stomach that needed to be operated,” said Chavan.
