Canadian boy's 1.02-inch Milk tooth declared a world record
An Ontario boy became a Guinness World Record holder after a baby tooth pulled by his dentist was measured at 1.02 inches long.
Luke Boulton, 9, of Peterborough, received word from Guinness that his tooth, removed by Dr. Chris McArthur of Liftlock Family Dentistry, earned the record for the world's longest milk tooth extracted.
Boulton's family said the tooth was removed Sept. 17, 2019, when the boy was 8 years old, but they only recently learned that their application for the world record had been accepted and they have not yet received an official certificate.
|"It was a bit disturbing at first to think that was in someone's mouth," Craig Boulton, the boy's father, told PTBO Canada of when he first saw the extracted tooth. "It was pretty impressive."|
Boulton said Luke's oldest sister, Leah, suggested the tooth could be a world record.
Luke Boulton said he is planning to have his tooth displayed with his certificate once it arrives from Guinness, as reported by UPI.
Indian Dentist Pulls Out World's Longest Known Tooth, Breaking Previous Record
When 20-year-old Pawan Bhavsar went to see his dentist in the Khargone district of Madya Pradesh in India, little did he know that he would be leaving with a world record.
The reason for this dental clinic visit was pain, swelling, and blisters inside his mouth. Dr. Saurabh Srivastava made the decision that the best way to move forward was to remove two of Bhavsar's teeth. It turns out that one of these teeth was much longer than was anticipated.
At roughly 3.8 cm (1.53 inches) long, the tooth beats any records previously held for the world's longest known tooth. The previous record was discovered in 2018, when the German dentist Dr. Max Lukas removed a 3.6 cm (1.46 inch) tooth.
To give a comparison, a regular tooth length is typically around 2.1 cm (0.8 inches).
You can see for yourself how the tooth looks, and if you've ever had any teeth pulled out before you'll quickly notice just how much longer this one is, as reported by Interestingengineering.
