Dental mix-up leaves autistic man toothless.

New York, April 11( ANI ): An autistic man from Indianapolis has been left toothless after a dentist ended up pulling all of his teeth without his permission in a bizarre dental mix-up.

According to WTVR, Christopher Crist walked into Amazing Family Dentist in Indiana and had all 32 of his teeth pulled out despite only going in for a routine operation to extract three, the New York Daily News reported.

The 21-year-old man's family has claimed that the dentist gave him pills to numb the pain and before he knew it, they had removed all of his teeth.

Crist told the station that the pills made him loopy and as the dentists were doing that, they were shooting his gums with the numbing gel.

His parents said they were trying to get his patient file from the dentist and would be filing a complaint with the state of Indiana. ( ANI )
