    The top 13 freakiest dental horror stories

    We polled our readers for their most outrageous stories... and the responses did not disappoint.



    Cold cut catastrophe

    I had a patient who, despite our advice, used slices of bologna to line her upper denture... and she did this for years! After a while, it made the roof of her mouth look just like bologna as well! It looked totally disgusting (not to mention how it made her mouth smell!)

    Editor’s note: We received multiple stories of patients using bologna as denture adhesive… Maybe it’s time for a PSA that lunch meat isn’t approved for dental purposes?
