Wire from dental braces removed from woman's bowel after ten years

Enlarge  The CT scan reveals the wire that was causing the woman’s abdominal

Doctors in Australia removed a piece of braces wire from a woman's small intestine 10 years after she initially had her orthodontics removed, CNN reports. Doctors chose to perform a CT scan and see what could have caused her affliction, and made a weird discovery.

The doctors originally thought the woman had accidentally swallowed a fish bone or something of similar size.

Australian doctors found a three-inch piece of wire in the stomach of a woman who had been complaining of stomach pain - the remnants of braces that were removed from her teeth a decade earlier. Once the pain ended, she was sent home.

"But when we went to ask the patient if she remembered swallowing anything, she had no recollection", Shepherd said. The small intestine, between the stomach and large intestine, is responsible for absorbing nutrients and allowing non-absorbed food to pass to the large intestine.

Since the woman was feeling extreme pain, doctors chose to operate on the woman and remove the foreign object.

Dr. Talia Shepherd, who treated the woman, said the chances of swallowing a wire from your braces were extremely low, CNN reported.

According to the medical report, this kind of incident is quite rare.

If you've worn braces, you know it's a pain when orthopedic wires poke into your gums.

Shepherd notes that those with braces shouldn't be anxious.

At first, doctors believed the woman was suffering from upper abdominal cramping because of her gall bladder, Sheperd told ABC Radio Perth. "There might be a higher chance if you're sedated and undergo a dental procedure", Shepherd said.
