My Dentist Trauma Illustrated with Vintage Novelty Dental Collectibles



Well, let me tell you my story about my recent trip to the dentist...


Like the sign says, I thought I'd "feel spiffy in a jiffy"...



But let me tell you, it was no joke! So NOT painless!



I had a tooth pulled. And I mean PULLED-- Twisted, Yanked -- and Forcefully!

I mean, look at these pages from a 1917 dental manual. The "tools of the trade" have hardly changed. A century later, and pliers are still pliers. Yikes!






This was me, before I begged for that extra shot of novacaine. I guess I should be grateful for that-- they might not have used any in 1917!

But I am finally recovering, there's less throbbing pain, and I can get back to my antiquing!

So I'll end with a pretty picture...
