A little boy in India is doing just fine after doctors removed more than 500 teeth from his mouth.

Doctors found the teeth, 526 to be exact, in a bag-like tissue in the boy's jaw.

It took doctors two hours to remove the tissue and another five hours to take all the teeth out.

The boy had a sore and swollen jaw when doctors made the discovery.

The teeth all had a crown, root, and enamel.

Doctors aren't sure how it happened, but they believe it's either genetic or environmental.
