A dentist from the German city of Offenbach received a certificate from Guinness World Records for pulling the longest known human tooth.
Dr. Max Lukas had extracted the 37.2-millimeter (1.46-inch) giant tooth from a patient in nearby Mainz who sought help in 2018 for severe dental pain.
After pulling the oversized enamel, 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.
