A disturbing video of a 10-year-old girl having over a dozen maggots removed from her gums has surfaced, after she said she was experiencing a ‘tingling’ sensation. The video is gripping, especially as the girl doesn’t even flinch once.
Ana Cardoso from Brazil clearly doesn’t have a fear of Dentists nor maggots, as she doesn’t bat an eyelid when she has them pulled out of her gums.
Her mother couldn’t believe with the discovery:
She had been saying for a few days that she felt something moving around in her mouth and at first I thought she was joking. I couldn’t see anything and she didn’t seem to be in pain.
A spokesperson for the Dentist wanted to send a warning out to those who could also be infected, and their reasoning for filming the procedure:
There were 15 maggots in her mouth so we videoed the removal for our records as it is a rare occurrence. We also wanted to show the girl’s family what had happened and warn others.
It looks pretty painful, so well done to the little girl for being so calm. I don’t know how she did it.
