A *high tech* version of my old Kaintuck version of dentistry as a farm kid.
What Grandma Hopkins an Aunt Emma Lou did for me an my cousin when we started losing our baby teeth was: Tie a string on the loose tooth, attach the string to the door knob of an open door, and then slam the door! “Vie-olly” as they say in Fwance, out came the loose tooth!!!!
At age 16 I went to my first *dentist* to get cavities filled. His fucking *drill* was bicycle-pedal powered an I remember well getting cramps in my lower arms from gripping the dental chair arm rests……….

Pink camo bow!
Considers Headmissy as a youngster doing just that.
They do the same thing under the British NHS but use a longbow.

Meteors – God’s updated drone program.
On the subject of dentistry, we had some kid aboard ship whose enlistment was up and, as part of the discharge procedure, he had to undergo thorough physical and dental exams. As the kid was not one for following a daily dental hygiene routine, the dental exam turned up a number of cavities that had to be filled before the kid could be discharged. The kid wasn’t too happy but, as he was spending the remainder of his enlistment at a Naval Support Activity instead of aboard ship, we didn’t have to listen to him whine.
#5, Col. Jerry, sir: I guess that was in the days before novocaine and the dentist thought that you were too young for a shot on “medicinal spirits”.
