232 Teeth Removed from Indian Boy


indian-boy-teethThe swelling in a teenage Indian boy’s jaw baffled doctors until an operation revealed he had grown 232 teeth in a single gum.

The operation took seven hours and is considered a world record (the most teeth discovered in a previous operation was 37).

Doctors say they had to use a hammer and chisel to crack open the infected area, which was described as like “a benign tumor.” Read more and see photos at the BBC.

  1. This really isn’t the time for jokes. The poor kid’s going to be in pain for a while. (Remember what it was like when you had the your wisdom teeth extracted? Well, multiply that by 80 and you’ll get the picture.)

  2. How would the Baal Hagadah describe “Hakhe es Shino” with this kid? Hope non of his classmates ever said to him, bite me.
