Dentist Drills His Own Cavity On His Own Dime

Doctor Isaac Qureshi, a dentist from Illinois, drilled out his own cavity while one his assistants filmed in anticipation. INSIDE EDITION has the scoop.

Here's something you don't see every day—a dentist drilling his own tooth! He had a cavity and he filled it himself!

Doctor Isaac Qureshi of Lake Zurich, Illinois held a mirror in one hand and a drill in the other!

INSIDE EDITION's Les Trent questioned Qureshi, "Just how difficult was that to fill your own molar?"

Qureshi replied, "It was difficult, but usually we're looking through a mirror anyway when we're doing someone else's, so it wasn't really that much more difficult than a regular fillling."

He drilled out the cavity, filled it in, and then zapped the filling with a laser to harden it. His assistant, who recorded the whole thing on her iPhone, was blown away!

"I've never seen this done before," said the assistant.

A little more drilling and polishing and it's done! From start to finish, the do-it-yourself dental work took just ten minutes. Nice job!
