Doctors in India have extracted 232 teeth from the mouth of a 17-year-old boy in a seven-hour operation, according to BBC News.

Ashik Gavai was brought in with a swelling in his right jaw, Dr Sunanda Dhiware, head of Mumbai's JJ Hospital's dental department, told the BBC.



The teenager had been suffering for 18 months and traveled to the city from his village after local doctors failed to identify the cause of the problem.
