state-funded National Healthcare Service not working out for David Sergeant
David Sergeant, a former butcher from Leeds, in the United Kingdom, claims that he has been forced to use pliers to pull out painful teeth due to being unable to see a professional dentist.
The 50-year-old man said it Impossible to get private care due to his financial situation, so he has had to get an appointment through the state-funded National Healthcare Service (NHS). David Sergeant says that hasn’t been working out too well. He has had to wait so long to see a dentist that he was forced to pull out multiple teeth over the past decade and a half.
“I can’t get an NHS dentist, for ten or 15 years. I’ve tried referrals from the doctors and there’s nowhere that will take me
I wait until the tooth is loose and then loosen it and loosen it and loosen it and pull it out myself. I have used pliers in the past, like big ones, but most of the time I just use my fingers.”David Sergeant
As you might imagine, pulling out your own teeth is a particularly painful experience. Especially when you’re already under a lot of pain from cavities or oral infections.
However, Sergeant says he has pulled though the ordeal with some beer and a couple of painkillers.
“I have a couple of beers and fill myself up with ibuprofen and out it comes. Next morning there’s a bit of blood”David Sergeant
The 50-year-old butcher added,
“It doesn’t feel very good. At the end of the day, I’m having to pull my own teeth out when I should have somebody looking after me”David Sergeant
