On the Hook
When this patient came in, he was already in pain and angry. The pain has become so unbearable that his personality has changed. He was aggressive and short with his answers. It was a rough first impression. But once we removed the tooth, he was a changed man. So happy he was anesthetized, the offending infected tooth was removed, and he didn't realized it came out.
Look at the roots on this one...they hooked onto the bone, making it a complicated extraction. So this is one of our trophies in the office. We were relieved when it came out in one piece as the patient had a hard time opening his mouth for us.
