The 72-year-old married electrician underwent an operation to remove a harmless lump in his abdominal wall at James Paget University Hospital in Great Yarmouth earlier this year.
Doctors initially couldn't find any problems.
Two days later, the man returned with worse symptoms - he couldn't swallow the medicine he was given and he reported worsening pain.
On his sixth - and last - slog to the hospital, the doctors discovered a torn artery and performed another round of emergency surgery. A trip to the X-ray provided confirmation and the man was whisked off to the operating room, where the dentures were plucked out with a pair of forceps.

After a blunder during an operation, a pensioner spent over a week with his dentures unknowingly stuck in his throat.
Over the next six weeks, he was trapped in a cycle where the bleeding from his throat seemed to stop and he was discharged from the hospital, only for him to start bleeding again and being readmitted. Before a child's surgery, she'll pull a very loose tooth and tell the patient to expect a visit from the tooth fairy.
Keeping people's dentures in is thought to make it easier for anesthesia to be given to them through a bag-mask, but they should obviously be taken out immediately before any intubation starts, the report noted.
Ultimately, more surgery was needed to resolve the problem. The bleeding got so severe that he needed multiple blood transfusions.
It has lead to calls for the presence of any false teeth or dental plates to be clearly documented before and after any surgical procedure, with all members of the surgical team made aware of what is to be done with them, they add. While the patient featured in the new case report healed well, these stories don't always have a happy ending.
The report's authors urged other medical professionals to be wary if a person wears dentures before they undergo general anesthesia. Once, a patient inhaled dentures and ended up dying, the report says.
