A video of a woman named Fay Rayward trying to pull her tooth out with pliers has hit the internet
Fay, through a Facebook post, revealed that after failing to get an appointment from a dentist she decided to pull her teeth out with the help of a pliers
“Why have I had to resort to this? Why can’t I see a dentist? Apparently, unless I can’t breathe or have a temperature then my referral from my dentist will be rejected? Spoke to the dentist just given advice. Called 111 and they referred me back to my dentist to be triaged. I really am going out of my mind with the pain! In 2020 didn’t think things could get much worse,” she wrote with caption.
Fay, a native of Shropshire a county in England, told BBC that her toothache was worse than labour pain. Ray further added that she had never experienced such pain.
“The pain for me was worse than childbirth. I have never experienced pain like it, it was searing through the side of my face. It was just awful. I’d posted an appeal on Facebook begging for help and advice after I was unable to get a dental appointment,” she was quoted as saying by Metro.
The report further stated Fay was advised by the dentists to take help of antibiotics and pain relievers, as Urgent Dental Care hubs (UDCs) were not open for routine service, as per the News18 report
“I realised that the only way would be to pull out my own tooth. It was agonising and I only managed to make it wobbly before I had to stop,” she said.
