Man yanks out two teeth with rusty pliers after he couldn’t book dentist appointment

A desperate man resorted to yanking two of his own teeth out after being unable to book a dentist appointment.

Chris Savage performed the self-dentistry in his bedroom because he could not register with a dentist or book an emergency appointment, saying it was the ‘most horrible thing I’ve ever done.’

The 42 year old said he had been in ‘agony’ for days, saying that just touching the tooth with his rusty pair of pliers set off waves of ‘agonising pain.’

The labourer admitted he had to get ‘very drunk’ by downing eight cans of Stella Artois to mask the pain before he pulled out the first tooth. He then waited another 24 hours to pull the second out – this time sober.

Among those things little pieces of normal are dental appointments and former The Flash star Robbie Amell has shared a humorous video of the aftermath of his own recent trip to the dentist that offered fans a quick laugh at his expense.

Getting a Saturday Dentist Appointment

If you work regular business hours during the week, you may find it very difficult to find an opportunity to have your teeth cleaned and examined on a regular basis. Business hours are called that for a reason. They are the time when most business is conducted. This makes it convenient because we know to expect banks and stores and other places to be open during certain hours of the day each week. However, people are needed to run these banks and stores and other places and if you are one of those employees, the hours may not be so convenient anymore.
