A bridge too far

Yesterday, my dentist removed my old cracked bridge with what he called a "tapper." I was curious to see it, because it felt has though he had been hammering a chisel against my teeth. It was a small instrument, hooked on one end, with a movable weight. It reminded me of the time Scary Jim and I went to the torture museum in Sienna. Very ingenuous.

  1. When doing bodywork on vehicles they call them slide hammers.

    I have one. I'll remove your bridge for half price!
