Teenager Has 232 Teeth Removed In World Record Operation

So you think having a few wisdom teeth removed is a big deal?  Be thankful you don’t have to go through what 17 year old Ashik Gavai of Mumbai , India had to endure.  According to the Telegraph, the teen noticed his jaw swelling about 18 months ago.  Dental surgeons eventually diagnosed the problem as a rare tumor known as a complex odontoma, which contains incompletely formed teeth.  Ashik’s case, however, set a record.  Never before in the annals of dental history have 232 of the pearl-like teeth been removed from such a tumor.  The operation took seven hours and the patient is expected to recover uneventfully.  Wisdom teeth?  A piece of cake!
