Longest tooth extracted

Longest tooth extracted

The Guinness Book of Records has recognized a German dentist from Offenbach for extracting a 37.2-millimeter (1.46-inch) tooth out of the mouth of a patient who had complained about severe pain. Dr Max Lukas had extracted the giant tooth from a patient in nearby Mainz who sought help in 2018 for severe dental pain.

Lukas spent about a year submitting the necessary paperwork and having the tooth checked before it was listed by Guinness World Records. Almost three-quarters of the tooth’s length was the root below the gumline.

He said he would make space in his office for the certificate. "Every dentist in the world will read about this," the daily newspaper Frankfurter Neue Zeitung reported him as saying.
