This is my tooth after being torn from my jaw by my Finnish dentist. I bravely laughed at the huge pair of pliers she used. Born from my head amidst a lot of tugging and a rather horrible splintering noise coming from my jaw. If you look closely you can see a bit of jawbone still attached. At one point the dental nurse whispered a quiet, “Wow”.
Afterwards she asked me to blow out my nose while she held it shut – I think it was to make sure that she hadn't tunnelled through my head. with her accent, my ears and her facemask I was convinced she was telling me that she was going to, “break my nose”.
I considered this a little harsh.
I'm now left with a huge, slimy, blood oozing hole in my mouth. The local anaesthetic is starting to wear off.
I must have some painkillers around here somewhere…
The dentist did look a bit strangely at me when I asked if I could keep the tooth – I thought it best that I didn't mention I was going to put a photo of it up on the internet.
