Vijay Kumar V A - The man with the most teeth

Vijay Kumar V A, from Bangalore, India, holds the Guinness World Record for 'The man with the most teeth'. He has 37 teeth in his mouth, as verified on 20 Sep 2014 – five more than the average person and, crucially, more than anyone else in the world.

Vijay first noticed that he had more biting power than most people in his late teen, but he only attempted to see if he qualified for Guinness a couple years ago only after discovering Chassidar Danabalan’s (India) previous record of 36 teeth.

Vijay explains that there are some disadvantages to having so many teeth, one being that he often bites his tongue. "Wherever I go, I have to brush after lunch," he told Guinness. "Sometimes if I don't clean it up, seeds get stuck in the upper jaw."

Getting the Guinness honor was just the first step. The harder part was getting a picture of his teeth, according to staff photographer Ranald MacKechnie. "It's not a big place to get a camera and lights in," MacKechnie said.

In spite of this, Vijay is proud of getting his teeth into a Guinness World Records title and the recognition that it gives him – his friends introduce him to new people as “the guy with the most teeth”.
