  1. Indian Teen Has 232 Teeth Removed

    A 17-year-old Indian boy had the record-breaking number of teeth removed after a rare condition caused a profusion of dental growths in his mouth. Ashik Gavai had been complaining of swellings in his gums for months, but it was only after visiting a dentist in Mumbai that he was diagnosed. The previous record was 37 teeth, so Ashik’s dentist was “thrilled to get such an exciting case.” The seven-hour operation left Ashik with 28 teeth and a lot more reason to smile.
