Doctors at a New York hospital have removed a tooth from a man’s nose.

Drs. Sagar Khanna and Michael Turner were the surgeons at the Mount Sinai Health System in New York who removed the object, after a the 38-year-old man arrived at hospital.

He told doctors that he had been having trouble breathing through his right nostril for several years.

Doctors discovered he had a deviated septum — a condition in which the partition between nasal passages is pushed to one side with a tooth growing on “the floor of the right nostril.”

The ectopic tooth, a term for a tooth growing in an abnormal place, was measured at about 2cm long.

The surgeons said they removed the tooth without complications.
