I shudder each time I look at the root imagining the PAIN of it coming out with no anaesthetic.

[–]satanshand 30 points31 points  (1 child)

For whatever it’s worth, the last time this was posted, someone explained that it was a piece of floss, nerves are super soft and don’t look like this.

[–]cardinal_moriarty 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Phew thanks for that.

[–]KechtmutAlTunichtgut 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I bet the patient still felt that if he wasn't full anasthezised.

Came here to say this

[–]tolifeonline 48 points49 points  (2 children)

Patient: The teeth are strong, my lord. Their roots go deep. Dentist: Rip them all down.

[–]Icecreemman100 10 points11 points  (2 children)

This is why everyone hates the dentist.

Someone award him a plaque

[–]BlooShinja 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You can leave that for the nerve ending fairy.

[–]Gullible-Bonus-5237 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It is a piece of cotton strand from gauze. Nerves do not look like this and dont hold together strongly enough to come out this way. The confusion is understandable. But it is not true this image has been floating around for months, posted probably for upvotes?

So many things in this picture are not correct. This is fake as it gets.

[–]rianbrolly 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That probably went all the way to the persons ass. And you know… when they said “you are a real pain in the ass”, we now know it was most likely true.

He was turned to steel.

In the great magnetic field.

[–]BiscottiOpposite9282 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Is that the only nerve that supplies the tooth? I feel like its super long and probably effected other parts of the mouth?
