(Scroll down for video) A young soldier was devastated when a dentist removed all of her teeth instead of fixing the broken ones.
Alison Divers was a soldier in the U.S. Army, and she was stationed in Germany, when the incident took place.
The 25-year-old Army Private had a toothache and had to undergo an emergency operation so she visited a dentist.
After the treatment was over, Divers discovered that all of her upper teeth had been removed and left in a bag for her.
Divers said that as a child, the injections at the dentists did not work well. The dentist had to give her about five injections before she felt fully numb.
So when the doctor offered to give her something that would render her unconscious, she agreed.
“When I woke up, it was like being in a horror movie. He had my teeth in a plastic bag over my head and I went crazy,” Divers said.
Divers only wanted 2 teeth fixed. “The other teeth, were not rotten or anything, he actually forced them out. They had to cut my gums to get some of the teeth out. I was mortified,” Divers said.
Divers then returned to the Army dentist for help, and all she got was ill-fitting dentures.
She eventually got her dentures replaced so she can feel good with herself and once again smile.
