We all have teeth, at least most of us do. If you don't have teeth, that's not our problem! But this kid, wow—he had 232 teeth, which I think we can all agree is way too many fucking teeth.

In a seven-hour operation, dentists were able to take out the excess teeth that had been growing in Ashik Gavai's gums. The 17-year-old had developed a rare benign tumor that produced hundreds of unneeded, and painful, teeth.

The BBC reports:


"Once we opened it, little pearl-like teeth started coming out, one-by-one. Initially, we were collecting them, they were really like small white pearls. But then we started to get tired. We counted 232 teeth," she added.

The surgery, conducted on Monday, involved two surgeons and two assistants. Ashik now has 28 teeth.

Gavai was forced to travel from his village to Mumbai in order to get his excess teeth removed, as local dentists had no idea what was going on with him. Good thing he did, because 28 teeth seems like a much better number than 232.
