This Little Girl Complained About Something Moving Inside Her Gums, What Dentist Found Out Is Terrifying

I don’t how many or what kinds of creatures can infest a human body. But what if one day you suddenly feel something crawling inside your mouth? And no matter how much you brush your teeth, the tingling sensation remains. Are you prepared to know what’s inside?

This is exactly what happened to a schoolgirl named Ana Cardoso, 10 from Brazil. Ana has been complaining to her mother about a tingling sensation in her gums and it seems is moving around. Ana’s mother, Adriana, 35, thought at first her daughter was just joking. She also said, I couldn’t see anything and she didn’t seem to be in pain.a

But then it started getting worse and no matter how much we brushed her teeth she said she still felt something.b


Because of her swollen gums, Ana was taken to a dental clinic. She was diagnosed with a rare form of Oral Myiasis, a fly lava maggot infection that grows inside humans and animals.

Mum Adriana was stunned and said, 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. She also added, She was actually very calm throughout the whole process but I suspect that was more out of helplessness. I mean where could she run to?

c“A spokesman for the dental surgery in the Brazilian capital Brasilia said, There were 15 maggots 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’s family what had happened and warn others!

The 2.43 minute video shows Ana’s reaction as a surgeon in white gloves takes out one maggot at a time with a pair of tweezers.
