A teenager from India can cash in on a serious payout from the Tooth Fairy after doctors removed 232 teeth from the boy’s mouth.

The 17-year-old went to doctors in Mumbai complaining of a toothache on the right side of his jaw. What he didn’t know was he had a record amount of teeth in his mouth, according to a Buzz:60 video, ranging in size from a mustard seed to a marble.

The teeth were hidden inside a growth on his lower jaw.

The seven-hour surgery was a success as doctors pulled out the teeth one by one.

Next time you complain about having to go to the dentist, think of this poor guy.
