An Indian boy has had six hour operation to remove 232 teeth.

17 year old Ashik Gavai now only has 28 teeth, after doctors discovered he had a rare  condition called composite odontoma, which causes additional teeth to grow.

Surgeons removed them one by one this week, resulting in a new world record for the most teeth pulled out of someone’s mouth in a single operation.
