Doctors at a hospital in central Vietnam on Friday performed a surgery to remove a denture from the stomach of a patient, who did not know that he had swallowed it. 
The 49-year-old came to Cam Ranh General Hospital in the morning with severe stomach pain.
Doctors found the partial denture with four teeth attached to a metal frame stuck in his stomach, causing swellings. 
The man said he lost the denture two days earlier without remembering how. 
Now he knows.
