A 22-year-old Oregon man had his left on for 11 years,  resulting in straight but rotten teeth.

Devin Bost claims he suffered serious tooth decay and disease and is now suing his orthodontist.

Some of Bost’s teeth will need to be replaced with implants, but others cannot be because they have rotted to the jaw.

Bost is seeking $185,000 ($NZD 256,000) for dental bills and for pain and suffering.
