The tooth fairy is scoring a lot of loot from one 17-year-old in India.
Doctors have just extracted 232 teeth from the mouth of a teenager, according to a BBC report.
The operation took about 7 hours. Dr. Sunanda Dhiware tells the BBC that Ashik Gavai had been suffering from swelling in his right jaw for the past 18 months and came to Mumbai's JJ Hospital to get checked out.
"Ashik's malaise was diagnosed as a complex composite odontoma where a single gum forms lots of teeth. It's a sort of benign tumour," Dr Dhiware told the BBC. "At first, we couldn't cut it out so we had to use the basic chisel and hammer to take it out."
Dr. Dhiware says once the opened it, little-pearl-like teeth starting coming out. In total: 232 teeth. Doctors have described his condition as "very rare" and "a world record".
