Based on a report from ABS-CBN News, a 72-year-old British man forgot to remove his dentures before his surgical operation in his abdomen. After the operation, he came back to the hospital and complain that he had trouble eating, breathing and bleeding in his teeth.

The doctors thought his complications in his lungs must have caused it so they gave him mouthwash and antibiotics.
