An elderly Italian woman named Elena Novello from San Giorgio delle Pertiche, in the province of Padua (Veneto), suddenly began to grow new teeth.
The 97-year-old Italian has not eaten solid food for about a year, but only homogenized foods intended for small children, since she has no teeth left. Imagine the surprise of the old woman when one morning she found in her mouth first one, and a few days later another tooth, of which there are already five.
The study of this unusual phenomenon, although not unique, because several similar cases have already been registered in the world, are being carried out by local doctors and dentists, who have not yet found a scientific explanation for this phenomenon.
“Last spring, Aunt Elena became seriously ill and was in the hospital for a long time, and when she returned, she was no longer able to eat normally, so we decided to feed her baby food from jars,” Elda, the niece of an elderly Italian woman, told Il Mattino. caring for her.
For the old woman herself, new teeth have become a discomfort, but undoubtedly this is not a reason to go to the dentist for their removal.
