Rugby Player Finds Rival’s Tooth Buried in Forehead

An Australian rugby player who went to his doctor with severe headaches was amazed to find he’d been living with an opponent’s tooth embedded in his forehead for months, it was reported Tuesday.

Ben Czislowski clashed heads with an opponent during a game in the Queensland Cup competition in early April, slicing open his forehead and leaving his opponent with a broken jaw and several missing teeth.

Czislowski told Brisbane’s Courier Mail newspaper that his wound was stitched up after the match and since then he had suffered shooting headaches, lethargy and an eye infection.

After trying to ignore the symptoms, the 24-year-old went to his doctor when he became concerned the constant pain and listlessness would force him to quit rugby league.

Czislowski said he was shocked when doctors told him the problem stemmed from a tooth that had been buried in his forehead just above his left eye.

“I can laugh about it now but the doctor told me it could have been serious with teeth carrying germs,” Czislowski told Australian Associated Press.

“I feel so lucky that the worst that I got out of it was that my head looked uglier than it does normally.”

Czislowski said he was prepared to mail the tooth back to its rightful owner if it was wanted, but until he received a request, he was keeping hold of it as proof of his bizarre injury.
