Doctors in India removed over 230 teeth from teenager Ashik Gavai's mouth on Monday.
Gavai eventually travelled to Mumbai’s JJ Hospital, where surgeons carried out a seven-hour operation after discovering the cause of his discomfort.
"At first, we couldn't cut it out so we had to use the basic chisel and hammer to take it out.
"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."
