Weird dentistry

A modern dentist office reception area with a blue-themed desk, neon sign saying "bauer smiles", geometric wall pattern, hanging geometric lights, and a clean, stylish interior design.

Weird dentistry

A small collection of weird dental things I have come across.

nose tooth
Image of tooth that had grown into a man’s nostril and was causing congestion and bleeding.
Weird crown
This patient had her dentistry done in Eastern Europe many years ago. She mentioned that occasionally she had some bleeding around the bridge. Ultimately, she decided to have her mouth restored and the bridge was removed to prepare her for orthodontic treatment. The image below is the prep under the bridge. It is entirely covered by a thin layer of highly vascular tissue, which crept under the very wide-open margins of the bridge. The groove down the center of the tissue on the facial is from the bur used to remove the bridge.
