False teeth stuck in throat for 9 weeks

4 posts in this topic

A 75-year-old woman with dementia had her false teeth stuck in her throat for nine weeks after doctors failed to spot she had swallowed them.

Nermin Keating, who lives with her daughter and full-time carer Umit Maddock in Braintree, Essex, swallowed the 11-teeth dentures in November.

Ms Maddock, 46, said her mother was seen by doctors about four times before the teeth were found and removed.

"Everybody thought it was impossible for someone to swallow them," she said.
