I just got home from the dentist, where i had an impacted wisdom tooth “removed”.
By “removed”, what they mean is a huge hole drilled into it, then a screwdriver-like tool screwed into the hole so the tooth can be broken into pieces, which can then be yanked out with pliers. (The pliers even look like pliers.)
Two freakin hours, and I have sutures to hold the hole closed. What a nightmare.
