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

 

Ashik Gavai was brought in with a swelling in his right jaw.

 

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

 

Doctors have described his condition as "very rare" and "a world record".
