Teen gets 232 teeth pulled with chisel and hammer

Teen gets 232 teeth pulled with chisel and hammer

A teen boy from India had 232 teeth removed as a result of a benign tumor growing in his mouth.

According to The Washington Post, when the boy, 17-year-old Ashik Gavai, was experiencing growth in his mouth causing a swollen right cheek, his parents sought out a doctor.

According to CNN.com, Gavai, underwent the procedure at JJ Hospital in Mumbai lasting six hours in order to get out “232 denticles – abnormal teeth-like growth.”

CNN reports that the reason the surgery had to be done at JJ Hospital was because the doctors of the village near Gavai’s home in Buldhana District were not able to do the procedure.

CNN.com also reports that Gavai’s doctors say that despite Gavai not noticing the abnormal growth until a month ago, the “denticles” actually began forming when he was the age of 6.
