VALDOSTA, Georgia (Meredith) — Construction workers found quite the surprise when they were renovating a building in southern Georgia.

City officials told WCTV that when crews knocked down a wall in the building, nearly 1,000 human teeth came spilling out.

While there is no clear explanation, officials said the building has been standing since 1900 and was home to dentist offices for several decades.

The teeth will be donated to the Lowndes County Historical Society where they will be DNA-tested to find out who they belonged to.
