    Where is the anesthesia?

    Before you proceed... WARNING: things might be a little GROSS... for SOME people!

    This video of how a root canal is performed was posted back in 2011. But, Interesting Engineering recently reposted it on Facebook and it's giving everyone nightmares.

    NOPE.

    youtube.com / Via youtube.com

    First things first, the video claims that an average root canal begins with a standard drill to access the inside of the tooth.

    Nothing looks ~standard~ about this... it looks painful AF.

    Anchor Bay / Paramount Pictures / Elite Entertainment / 20th Century Fox / The Orchard / Entertainment One / Relativity Media / Dark Sky Films / IFC Midnight / Millennium Entertainment / IFC Films / Roadside Attractions / Lionsgate / Ben King for BuzzFeed

    Oct. 1: Children of the Corn (1984). Start the month off right with the scariest thing there is: kids. Based on a Stephen King short story, Children of the Corn was poorly received at the time but has gained a cult following, because children are terrifying.

    The Babadook

    IFC Films

    Oct. 2: The Babadook (2014). This was last year's breakout horror hit, and it's easily as frightening as you've heard. Plus, switching between the classics and more modern fare will help keep your October horror viewings fresh.

    Oct. 3: Rosemary's Baby (1968). Like The Babadook, Rosemary's Baby prioritizes psychological horror over gore. Even if you know the gist of it — and chances are, you do — you'll get caught up in the suspense of Rosemary's demonic pregnancy woes.

    V/H/S

    Magnet Releasing

    Oct. 4: V/H/S (2012). You might be iffy on found footage, but give it a chance: When used effectively in horror, it's truly terrifying. V/H/S has the benefit of being an anthology, so you're bound to find something you like in there.

    Oct. 5: Night of the Living Dead (1968). Just because it's black and white doesn't mean it's any less scary. If you've never seen the most iconic zombie film of all time, you're missing out on a tense and surprisingly modern movie that proved foundational for the genre.

    Saw

    Lionsgate

    Oct. 6: Saw (2004). Again: Try to come into this with an open mind. Saw may have necessitated the creation of the term "torture porn," but the original film is just as cerebral as it is bloody. You might enjoy it more than you think.

    Oct. 7: The Omen (1976). Because you didn't get your fix of demon spawn with Rosemary's Baby. The Omen is another classic, and it's also a harrowing reminder that children are seriously creepy.

    Devil

    Universal Pictures

    Oct. 8: Devil (2010). Yes, really. Devil never quite got its due, perhaps because it had producer M. Night Shyamalan's name slapped on it long after such things were in fashion. Nevertheless, it's a creepy little supernatural thriller set in a packed elevator.

    Oct. 9: Creep (2014). Another found-footage film, Creep's title pretty much says it all. But the bizarre stalker horror film, which stars a surprisingly scary Mark Duplass and director Patrick Brice, is remarkably stressful and full of scares, both quick and lingering.

    Re-Animator

    Elite Entertainment

    Oct. 10: Re-Animator (1985). Back to gore, but with a lot of comedy to ease you along. Re-Animator, which is based on an H.P. Lovecraft novella, is the ideal cult classic to complete your Saturday night.

    Oct. 11: Housebound (2014). Follow Re-Animator up with more horror comedy, this time New Zealand ghost story Housebound. This more recent installment of the genre is consistently delightful — with Kiwi accents, to boot.

    The Monster Squad

    TriStar Pictures

    Oct. 12: The Monster Squad (1987). OK, so it's not exactly terrifying, but it's a blast to watch, and you might as well continue the fun you've been having with horror comedies. It's a bunch of kids fighting the classic Universal monsters — aka your childhood nightmare.

    Oct. 13: We Are What We Are (2013). Both the 2010 Mexican original and this remake are worth watching, but only the latter version is streaming on Netflix. The less you read about this indie thriller, the better. Let the finale shock you.

    The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

    Image Entertainment

    Oct. 14: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920). Take a break from modern thrills with a true classic. The silent black-and-white film won't scare you the way that, say, The Omen will, but it's creepy enough to get you in the Halloween spirit.

    Oct. 15: Oculus (2013). And we're back to disturbing modern horror. Oculus never really got credit for being as frightening and well crafted as it is. Even if you see where it's going, you'll still find yourself gutted by by the climax. (Cover all your mirrors before watching.)

    A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

    Vice Films

    Oct. 16: A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014). It's not quite horror in the traditional sense, but after Oculus, you'll need a break from the the bleakness. A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is a highly stylized feminist vampire flick. What's not to love?

    Oct. 17: Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986). And now back to our regularly scheduled depravity. Henry offers an overly intimate and uncomfortably realistic look at a sadistic killer. It's a notorious '80s classic that you'll probably wish you hadn't watched. Sorry.

    The House of the Devil

    Dark Sky Films

    Oct. 18: The House of the Devil (2009). Not an '80s film, but a definite '80s throwback. The House of the Devil is one of those atmospheric scary movies that will have you on edge for most of its runtime and then it'll send you over the edge with a truly batshit climax.

    Oct. 19: Maniac (2012). The 2012 remake of Maniac, a controversial slasher in its own right, is admittedly hard to stomach. But what's worse than the gore is the second-person perspective that puts you into the killer's head. See if you can stomach it.

    Pet Sematary

    Paramount Pictures

    Oct. 20: Pet Sematary (1989). If you've read Stephen King's novel, you know that Pet Sematary is one of his scariest works. The film does the novel justice, even if it does feel a little dated at times. There's enough distressing imagery to give you nightmares.

    Oct. 21: Starry Eyes (2014). The less said about this be-careful-what-you-wish-for tale of an aspiring actor who gets in over her head, the better. There is plenty of body horror grossness here, so you may have to look away if you're especially squeamish.

    Nosferatu

    Kino Lorber Films

    Oct. 22: Nosferatu (1929). If you made it through Starry Eyes, you deserve a break. This off-brand take on Bram Stoker's Dracula is short on jump scares, but it's a hugely influential and effective piece of horror history. Check it out.

    Oct. 23: The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014). This found-footage horror film mostly fell under the radar, which is unfortunate, because it's a sharp and very well executed twist on the exorcism genre. If you dug The Visit this year, you'll love this one.

    Scream

    Dimension Films

    Oct. 24: Scream (1996). It's hard to imagine what modern horror would look like without Scream, a slasher film that fully embraced the theories of Carol Clover and showed us how meta-horror could be smart and funny without sacrificing the scares.

    Oct. 25: Let the Right One In (2008). The remake was fine, but it's hard to top the ethereal style and chills of the gorgeous Swedish original. Like A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, it's a thoroughly distinctive vampire story.

    Leprechaun

    Lionsgate

    Oct. 26: Leprechaun (1993). With Halloween fast approaching, take a moment for something dumb and fun. That something is Leprechaun, featuring a very young Jennifer Aniston and a bloodthirsty leprechaun who's as violent as he is quippy.

    Oct. 27: Contracted (2013). Before It Follows, there was Contracted, which conflates sexually transmitted disease with supernatural horror. It's a very different film — more body horror, for one — but it's worth squirming through.

    Black Sunday

    Kino Lorber Films

    Oct. 28: Black Sunday (1960). If you've never experienced Italian gothic horror, you're in for a treat. Mario Bava's classic film about a vengeful witch still gets under your skin. It was gory enough to be banned in the United Kingdom when it was first released.

    Oct. 29: Teeth (2007). A dark comedy with a decidedly feminist slant, Teeth literalizes the myth of vagina dentata. And it does so beautifully. You've seen enough violence toward women in horror: It's time for something castration-heavy to shift the balance a bit.

    Hellraiser

    Image Entertainment

    Oct. 30: Hellraiser (1987). If you haven't seen Hellraiser, you probably associate it with Pinhead. But the nail-headed villain is more of a secondary character in the original, which is delightfully perverse and gloriously bloody.

    Oct. 31: You're Next (2011). You've done it. You've reached Halloween! Now sit back and enjoy the greatest slasher flick in recent memory. It owes a debt to Scream — and all that came before it — but it's thoroughly original. And a perfect way to celebrate the holiday.

    Unless you love sucking up 10 million germs a day, ofc.

    There are all kinds of deeply wretched germs crawling under your fingernails.

    There are all kinds of deeply wretched germs crawling under your fingernails.

    Fingertips are hives of nastiness, and are home to various types of bacteria, fungus, and YEAST (eww). One particularly prevalent germ found under nails is Staphlococcus aureus, which can cause a load of crazy skin infections like boils and abscesses. Mmmm, oral boils.

    Bravo / beamlyus.tumblr.com

    When you suck and chew on your fingernails, they become an even greater bacterial paradise.

    When you suck and chew on your fingernails, they become an even greater bacterial paradise.

    Back in 2007, Turkish scientists tested 59 people to see whether nail biting had any real effect on transporting bacteria to the mouth. They swabbed each person’s mouth for saliva to check for diarrhoea and vomiting bacteria such as Escherichia coli and many other nasties starting with E. And guess what? Seventy-six per cent of those who bit their nails tested positive, compared to just 26.5% of non-biters. So if you don’t want to spend half your life shitting for Britain, you might want to take your fingers out of your mouth, now.

    If you bite your nails, chances are that you’re already causing dental damage.

    Who knew that a little innocent nibble could cause such havoc on the old gnashers? In real hardcore cases, nail biting has resulted in tooth fractures, tooth loss, and crazy, displaced jaws.

    instagram.com

    You're more likely to grind your molars into dust at night.

    Nail biting can be a nervous reaction, so the likelihood is that if you’re chewing up your fingers on the reg, you’re also susceptible to grinding your teeth at night. "Those who bite their teeth are often stressed", said Dr Adam Roberts, senior lecturer at UCL’s department of microbial diseases, "so may have other factors that affect their teeth such as grinding."

    If you already have weak teeth, continually tearing off bits of nail with your front teeth could lead to dental chipping. And if you can't see from this delightful picture, grinding can also LEAD TO TEETH FALLING OUT.

    An apple a day won’t keep the dentist away.

    If you accidentally chip or crack a tooth, you’re exposing it to tooth decay quicker.

    Tooth fractures can quickly lead to decay. Bacteria can use these crevices in the teeth to find their way to your teeth’s more sensitive parts, which are often places where your toothbrush can’t reach.

    Those most at risk of chipping their teeth are young children, contact sports players, those with lip or tongue piercings, and those in military training.

    Drinks high in acidity can make your teeth weak.

    Drinks high in acidity can make your teeth weak.

    The outer shell of your teeth is coated in enamel, which is made of minerals. Enamel is the hardest substance in the human body but, unfortunately, it is most prone to decay. Acidic drinks, such as fruit juices and fizzy drinks, can break down this enamel, making your teeth vulnerable to tooth decay.

    Unless you go about your life with Coke in your mouth for an entire day (or five), you're not going to see the dramatic decay pictured above. But one study exposed 20 test teeth to different drinks, including Coca-Cola, Pepsi and Dr. Pepper, their diet versions, and other soft drinks. Results found that tap water and black coffee barely dissolved tooth enamel, while the cola drinks "dissolved enamel 55-65 times more than both water and root beer".

    The study also found that there was also no difference in amount of tooth erosion between regular and diet drinks. Even though diet drinks lack sugar, they're equally bad for your teeth.

    So put down that fifth can of Coke if you want to protect your gnashers.

    If you grind your teeth in your sleep, they are more likely to decay.

    Grinding your teeth at night is a common sign of stress or worry, and nightmares of your teeth falling out could quickly become truth. Clenching your jaw and teeth-grinding creates a large amount of pressure on your teeth. If done frequently, your teeth will be more likely to crack and fracture, increasing the chance of tooth decay, and missing teeth.

    In a computer simulation of the human jaw clenching, researchers found that both the upper and lower jaw became IRREVERSIBLY deformed with repeated clenches.

    If you're fretting about your fangs, you may want to consider wearing a mouth guard at night while you sleep.

    And if bacteria does find a way in, it's not just your teeth that are affected.

    Infection in the teeth and gums can lead to an dental abscess, which is where pus collects because of a bacterial infection. This is usually felt with a sore throbbing pain where the abscess is. The common cause of an abscess is a combo of eating sugary foods and bad dental routines.

    To get this treated, a dentist must drain the pus and, in some cases, remove the infected tooth. 😧

    Run your tongue over your teeth and feel that nice, fuzzy bacteria biofilm.

    It's easy to forget how INSANELY DIRTY our mouths can get.

    It's easy to forget how INSANELY DIRTY our mouths can get.

    Even if you take great care of your teeth, your mouth is constantly full of bacteria that's trying to eat away at your teeth and cause disease. BuzzFeed Life reached out to American Dental Association (ADA) spokesperson Dr. Kimberly Harms, D.D.S., a dentist who practices in Minnesota and Rwanda, to find out more about common mistakes, things dentists wish we knew, and the seriously horrifying consequences of not cleaning your teeth.

    Piotr Sikora / Getty Images / Via thinkstockphotos.com

    Right now, there's a super sticky biofilm called plaque that's coating the surfaces of your teeth with bacteria.

    Right now, there's a super sticky biofilm called plaque that's coating the surfaces of your teeth with bacteria.

    "That bacterial plaque sticks to the front, back, side, in between, and right under gums," says Harms. Plaque isn't very thick, so your teeth can actually feel relatively clean even when they're coated in it. But it's actually the root of decay and many other dental diseases, so it's good to understand that it builds up all over your teeth every day, which is why brushing is so damn important. “The best way to fight plaque is brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing properly once a day,” Harms says.

    Universal / Via maudit.tumblr.com

    If your mouth is super dry, that bacteria grows even faster.

    If your mouth is super dry, that bacteria grows even faster.

    "Many people don't know how important saliva is for cleaning our teeth and fighting cavities," Harms says. Saliva obviously helps physically wash away food residue, but it also has antibacterial properties, neutralizes acids that eat away at enamel, and helps repair and restore teeth. So if you suffer from dry mouth (often caused by certain medications), that can be bad news for your teeth.

    "You need added protection or attention to teeth cleaning if you have dry mouth," says Harms. There are a variety of saliva-increasing rinses and toothpastes on the market, but drinking lots of water helps, too.

    Nickelodeon / Via youtube.com

    Plaque also grows on your teeth at night, which is why it's pretty gross to forget to brush and floss in the morning.

    Plaque also grows on your teeth at night, which is why it's pretty gross to forget to brush and floss in the morning.

    Even though you don't eat in your sleep and your teeth probably feel super clean in the morning if you brushed them before bed, plaque is still coating your teeth during all hours of the night. Hence morning breath.

    "Brushing in the morning is just as important as at night, especially if you're a mouth-breather, which dries out saliva," Harms says. It doesn't matter if it's before or after breakfast, just as long as you remove the bacteria that grew overnight.
