A 75-year-old English woman misplaced her dentures and couldn’t find them anywhere. It was around this time that she began to feel ill and started having trouble breathing. It turns out, the dentures were in the last place she thought of looking – her throat.
Nermin Keating went to the doctor complaining of respiratory problems and was diagnosed with a lung infection and put on antibiotics. But it didn’t go away. She made trips to three more doctors who checked her out and put her on more antibiotics. Eventually, she visited one more doctor who actually looked down her throat and noticed the false teeth wedged in there. Finally, the last doctor pulled the teeth out, but only after they had been in her throat for nine weeks.
