Tooth fairy to take out second mortgage

BBC news recently reported this case of an Indian boy having 232 teeth removed from his mouth.  (Yes, you did read that right!!).

Described as "a complex composite odontoma where a single gum forms lots of teeth" and "a sort of benign tumour", the mouth full of teeth is believed to be a world record, and were removed in a seven-hour operation.

When I was a nipper, I got 10p for each tooth - apparently it's anything up to £2 now - this lad could be rich!!!
