Dental surgery, that is!
Still, even dental surgery can be super scary!
Apparently Christina Applegate was filming an episode of her show Up All Night when she felt a sharp pain in her mouth… then found that half her back molar had broken off, leaving the nerve exposed!
AHHH it hurts us just to imagine it!!
"I had emergency dental work done last night after a 14-hour work day… My tooth broke. My molar, half of it just left. I'm sure I'll be seeing it again soon because I don't know what happened to the rest of it.
"I was sitting at work and I was like, 'My tongue feels really weird,' and I went back there and literally like a shard of tooth (was) stabbing me in the tongue. Then the nerve started to hurt so then we had to find someone… He (the dentist) was very nice, he did leave his dinner and come and do this for me in the middle of the night. It's fine, I'm a little numb."
Wow, we're super glad he was able to do that for you!
We wonder what he was having for dinner. What do dentists eat? Floss with spaghetti sauce?
One more mystery the world will never solve… Ha!
Hope all is better now, Christina!
