A girl who went for a check up at her local dentists was horrified when they started pulling out maggots from her mouth. Little Ana Cardoso, 10, had been taken to the clinic in the Brazilian capital Brasilia after complaining about feeling a tingling sensation in her gums and things "moving around." Stunned mum Adriana, 35, said: "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. "But then it started getting worse and no matter how much we brushed her teeth she said she still felt something. "I know my daughter and she is not one to make up stories or lie so eventually I took her to see a dentist. "I couldn’t believe it when they said she had a disease and then started pulling the maggots out. "I thought I was going to be sick." Ana was diagnosed with a rare form of Oral Myiasis, a fly lava maggot infection that grows in humans and animals. A spokesman for the dental surgery said: "There were 15 maggot in her mouth so we videoed the removal for our records as it is a fairly rare occurrence. "We also wanted to show the girl what had happened." The 2.43 second video shows Ana’s reaction as a surgeon in white gloves takes out one maggot at a time with a pair of tweezers. Mum Adriana said: "She was actually very calm throughout the whole process but I suspect that was more out of fear than nonchalance." (ends)
