Fay explained that she was left in pain after a filling fell out and her tooth began to crack.

She was prescribed antibiotics however the pain became increasingly worse.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown, Fay wasn’t able to get a dental appointment because it wasn’t an emergency or a “serious case”.

However, after six days of pain, Fay decided to try and fix it herself and grabbed a pair of pliers.

She said: “I was trying to bear with it. I knew what the situation would be with dentists during lockdown.”

Speaking about taking matters into her own hands, Fay continued: “It was desperate measures. I was crying and didn’t know what to do.

“I started with tweezers tying to loosen the tooth and got my husband’s pliers and tried to remove it myself.”
