    Breakin' The Ice

    [ranking: 15]
    From Redditor /u/lovelesschristine:
    After getting his wisdom teeth taken out my husband wondered if he could fit an ice breaker in the hole. Spoiler alert, he could.

    Another Reason Not To Chew Tobacco

    [ranking: 13]
    From Redditor /u/Anaruman:
    "I always warn patients [to not smoke] after extractions (any surgery actually), explaining the increased risk of dry socket (osteomyelitis). In fact my standard admonition is, 'If you get dry socket after smoking and return looking for sympathy I'll hand you a dictionary and you can find it between sh*t and syphilis.'
    One day a smoker returned with a dry socket, swearing that he had not smoked as per directions. His significant other backed him up. After numbing him and during the debridement of the socket, I removed a chunk of vegetable matter which he identified as chewing tobacco. Now, my post-op instructions include restricting chew."

    A Gigantic Booger

    [ranking: 3]
    From Redditor /u/endo_ag:
    "I was in dental school doing a hospital rotation. We were asked to do a dental exam on an unconscious man who had been found unconscious while high on heroin. He was going to recover, but was sedated. He was septic with a bacteria commonly found orally, (Strep veridans, perhaps). On exam we saw some very poor quality... dentistry... but there was also a thick white crust covering his extremely dry mouth and tongue.
    We debated what it might be, with one guess being a severe Candida overgrowth. We cultured it and found no fungal growth under the microscope. He was brought to the dental clinic for debridement. When he came to our clinic and water was sprayed trying to clean him up, it became clear what it was. He had sinus drainage into his mouth that had dried and he essentially had a quarter inch thick layer of booger covering his mouth and throat."

    Wrecking Ball Required

    [ranking: 9]
    From Redditor /u/DrMackDDS2014:
    "One [patient in dental school] was a 36-year-old female recovering meth addict. Her teeth were so badly decayed and covered in calculus that a 'calculus bridge' had formed on the tongue side of the lower anterior teeth, essentially gluing them together. My oral surgery instructors decided that before we pulled all her teeth, I needed to debride them so as to not have pieces of calculus fall into the sockets during extraction and lead to healing issues.
    When I signed in with my periodontal faculty to scale and debride her teeth, my faculty member actually told me she was jealous that I got to scrape and blast all of that sh*t off. It was like using a wrecking ball with so much junk coming off those teeth."

    Fill In The Blanks

    [ranking: 12]
    From Redditor /u/ponte92:
    "[I am a] dental assistant. The hygienist once pulled out what looked like a pubic hair from between a patient's teeth. We just looked at each other and said nothing."

    Dentures Can Mold, Too

    [ranking: 6]
    From Redditor /u/Poke-hey-mon:
    "My dad's a dentist. He pulled out a patient's dentures and they were covered in mold. Yep, the patient was wearing moldy dentures... I would assume anybody that takes care of their mouth in such a terrible way takes care of the rest of their body in a similar manner."

Nobody loves the dentist. All of the machines in the procedure room are scary, that music they play in the waiting room is incredibly generic, and worst of all you never know if you're going to be receiving good news or bad. Dentists rarely pull punches, either, and they've been known to figure in more than a few hygiene-related horror stories. If you haven't been flossing, your dentist will know and call you out for it. They're not like those nice doctors you see on TV – they're merciless and unyielding.

Of course, dentists don't have it so easy, either. They've got to deal with squirmy kids and patients who never brush their tongues. In fact, dentists have seen some of the most horrific types of matter in their patients' mouths. You didn't think living organisms could sprout in someone's oral cavity? Well, they certainly can and do. The dentists of Reddit have shared their grisly stories, so read on – but maybe keep a bottle of mouthwash handy.
