By retainer - 22/07/2009 22:36 - United States

Today, at the dentist, the new, rather airy assistant went to prep me for an extraction. She began pulling on something in my mouth, and a moment later, I felt intense pain and then the wetness of blood. She was trying to pull out "that weird wire thing". In other words, my permanent retainer. FML

Omg, ouch. Seriously though, you'd think a dentist would know about that.

No, she's not, but she should have quickly looked over the patients dental history file. You don't just take a look in a patients mouth and start doing whatever you please.

and you wonder why people don't like to go to the dentist... Seriously OW!

Yeah, she was only an assistant and she must have been REALLY RETARDED

She wasn't the dentist, she was a really, really bad assistant. What kind of moron just decides to pull something out of someone's mouth? What, did she think that you had a wire in your mouth for no reason and you didn't know about it? I sure hope the dentist is willing to pay to compensate you for her assistant's stupidity, otherwise, you can sue not just for damages but for pain and suffering too.

True that. I really hate the sue happy culture that we live in but this is definitely something that you should sue. I mean what the ****? "Weird wire thing?" Because people normally have wire's in their mouths for no reason at all. She didn't even ask before pulling it out?! Stupid bitch.

I agree #64. There is entirely too much suing going around that is part of why certain things cost as much as they do...but this chick needs to find *some* way to make amends, because she does not sound like someone who should have her hand in anyone's mouth. I'm normally very forgiving of innocent mistakes but this is too effing much.

I hope you then used that "weird wire thing" to strangle her and yankout her eyes. Oh, and @1: it was the assistant, not the dentist.

same here, i went the other day and got a tooth pulled and was almost in tears the entire time. and thats with numbing shit, and the dentist didn't pull out my retainer.

You just have to suck it up.. It took my dentist a full hour to extract one of my teeth, she put "the numbing shit" on my mouth like 3 times.

WEll if you sue for malprcatice you're hurting the Doctor no the assistant because DA's don't carry malpractice insurance.
