Stop. Stop what you are doing. I need your attention. This is the grill Lady Gaga wore on the red carpet at last night’s YouTube Awards. Upsetting, no? I have spent some time zooming in on these chompers and I’ve come to the conclusion that they are real human teeth embedded in sterling silver. I guess Lady Gaga’s latest incarnation is Your Worst Nightmare Horror Movie Villain? Those teeth will be haunting my dreams for years. Check out a frightening closeup, if you dare, after the jump.

Just thinking about this is giving me chills: Christopher Crist went to Amazing Family Dentist in Indianapolis, Indiana, to have a couple of problem teeth removed. But somehow, the dentist removed 29 of his teeth. He’s now toothless and wondering what the fuck happened. The 21-year-old autistic man was told by his mother to ask for three teeth to be pulled, so it’s unclear just how or why the dentist decided to take out all of his teeth.
And apparently, the dentist who took out all of Crist’s teeth has been cited for removing too many teeth in the past. Another patient named Rose Hill went to the same dentist to have a tooth removed, and ended up with her entire bottom row of teeth removed. When she attempted to go back to the dentist to confront him about his work, he refused to see her and called the police to have her escorted out.
In all, nearly a dozen people have come forward to complain that they had teeth needlessly pulled from the same dentist. In the meantime, Crist and his family are suing the dentist. Hopefully, it’ll provide them with enough money to buy him some dentures. [Fox59]
There are many uses for hydrogen peroxide, it can even fight blemishes. Now, I’ve got another excellent use for this household antiseptic: It whitens teeth!! Safely, that is. I know the name is a little off-putting, (“hydrogen peroxide” doesn’t exactly sound like something you should put in your mouth) but the stuff you pick up at the drugstore comes in 3% form, making it safe to use orally.
Here’s how to use it: Mix two parts hydrogen peroxide with one part water and swish around in your mouth for about 30 seconds (or if you think your gums can handle it, take it straight). Spit it out and proceed to brush your teeth with a whitening toothpaste. That’s pretty much all there is to it!! Don’t be alarmed, though: Once in your mouth, the hydrogen peroxide will begin to foam up. Don’t freak out! Read more…
One of my dad’s main hobbies when I was growing up was collecting and cleaning skulls, so I probably feel a bit more comfortable with bones, teeth, and cartilage than the average person (my brothers and I used to play with one particular manta ray exoskeleton as if it were a GI Joe doll). Even so, these jawbone sunglasses, which are made out of a real deer mandible, totally creep me out. On the bright side, I might have just found the perfect Christmas gift for my dad. [Neatorama]
This weekend, I called my sister to rehash my love life.
Suddenly I could hear her turning to a small child in the background. “Do you want to tell Aunt Jessie the big news?” she asked. “No!” My five-year-old niece M. replied.
“Tell me, what’s the big news?” I asked my sister, wondering what constitutes “big news” in kindergarten.
“M. lost her first tooth!” my sister said. “The tooth fairy left five dollars last night.”
“FIVE DOLLARS?!?!” I shouted into the phone. Keep reading »
