MAN, WHO COULDNT GET A DENTIST PULLS OUT HIS TEETH WITH PLIERS
Written by Lola Narawa on January 25, 2023
A man who suffered excruciating pain for 2 years from a toothache tells all on why he pulled out his own teeth with pliers.
51-year-old Ferdi says there was no Dentist within a 25km radius of his residence. Since the pain was getting too much for him, he decided to take matters into his own hands.
Photographer Ferdi, who has recently completed his PhD in political philosophy, has since tried to seek private dental treatment to fix his mouth, but was shocked to receive a quote of £16,000, far more than he was able to afford.
Feeling as though he was “teetering on the edge of like insanity due to sleep deprivation”, Ferdi made the painful decision to extract the tooth himself, using a pair of ordinary household pliers.
Ferdi said: “I grabbed hold of it and started to pull. Oh my God, the pain. The pain was just excruciating. It just went all across the side of my face is absolute agony. I thought, ‘just keep pulling. Keep pulling’.
“So I kept pulling and it was just agony. But then I could hear the bones cracking, and then it just came out.
“The relief from just having been in absolute agony, pulling it out, the relief was just phenomenal. And there’s blood everywhere. It was a mess. And I was like, ‘well, I hope I never have to do that again’.”
