Ashik Gavai’s family visited JJ Hospital and came to know that their son is suffering from condition known as complex odontoma.

Later the surgeons in Mumbai operated Ashik and removed 232 teeth from his mouth.

“We operated on Monday and it took us almost seven hours. We thought it may be a simple surgery but once we opened it there were multiple pearl-like teeth inside the jaw bone,” said a doctor from the operating team.

Ashik’s, Suresh Gavai said that the family had been worried that Ashik’s swelling was a cancerous growth, so he bought him to the city.

Doctors’ claims Gavai’s jawbone structure was maintained during the operation so it should heal without any deformities.
