After consulting with dentists, the doctors decided he had a tooth in his nasal cavity and extracted it under general anesthesia. No muss, no fuss.

"It's an unusual case of an extra tooth—certainly, the most impressive intranasal photo I think I've ever seen of one," says John Hellstein, a dentist.
