Driven to Extraction: The Tale of a Prison Escape

Many people try to avoid going to the dentist even when they are in severe pain due to their fear of dental professionals. However, no amount of dentist phobia could stop this Swedish inmate! A 51-year-old prisoner who just couldn’t take his toothache any more decided to take matters into his own hands and broke out of prison so he could go to the dentist. The prisoner told authorities that he had been complaining about the toothache for days and just couldn’t handle the pain anymore. The inmate turned himself in to the authorities after being treated for his dental problems. As a result, his one-month prison sentence was extended for only one day. Moral of the story: go to the dentist now when you can (i.e. when you are not behind bars, etc.) so you can get the care you want and need.
