Don't sleep with your mouth open! Dentist removes maggots from mouth of patient

A dentist in southern Thailand got a shock on finding a nest of a dozen maggots in the roof of the mouth of a bedridden patient.

 

Dr Thanatnon had been called to the house of the patient in Nakhon Sri Thammarat where a number of people were living laid off because of the coronavirus pandemic.

 

The patient had a feeding tube and a severe gum swelling and it was decided after consulting another doctor to take them to Phra Phrom Hospital.

 

The patient had a high temperature and protocols had to be observed.

 

After further advice was sought from colleagues elsewhere an incision was made and the dentist found what they described as a cave with 12 maggots.

 

The dentist said on Facebook that bedridden patient's should not sleep with their mouths open lest flies enter and lay their eggs.

 

The dentist said they had heard about this possibility during lectures but never seen it for real.

Chin strap .       A snoring chin strap works by supporting your chin during sleep, which in turn, keeps your mouth closed. This prevents air from traveling to and from your throat, therefore minimizing the rapid flapping that is the primary cause of the sound that snorers make.
