    The top 13 freakiest dental horror stories

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



    Shock and jaw

    I got called to the ER for a trauma patient because they couldn't get the patient's "upper denture" out.  When I got there, I realized it wasn't a denture at all—it was his entire upper jaw! He had a Lefort I fracture and the only thing holding his upper jaw "in place" were his greater palatine arteries, veins and nerves... yikes!
