Cast Away

Tom Hanks is just great, and I watched Cast Away again last night and really enjoyed it. Of course, the dental scenes were of particular interest to me. You see the main character, Chuck (Tom Hanks), has a tooth ache and has been putting off seeing a dentist. He ends up in a plane crash, stranded on a desert island. A few things wash up on shore which he uses as tools. At first the ice skates (you can see them in the photo) seem totally useless on a tropical island, but he quickly put the blades to use chopping things.

His tooth ache doesn’t get better; they never do. He wishes aloud that he had gone to the dentist sooner. He ends up having to use the skate blade and a rock to remove the tooth as the pain becomes unbearable. It’s a particularly brutal scene.

So if you want to see a great movie check out Cast Away. If you don’t want to end up like poor Chuck stranded, alone, and with a terrible tooth ache you should take care of small dental problems before they become big ones. We can help you with that. Give us a call.
