Thanks alot!
I already disliked going to the dentist, and this does not help in any way! :shock: :wink:
(However, it is a good shot and interesting).

That's just so wrong!!!!!!

I'm totally with Charles, not good with dentists at all. But it is a great shot, and really makes a change from the regular subjects!

So those are little hunks of synthetic diamond embedded onto a steel shaft?

Why doesn't the blood all just fly off, I thought these things rotated at huge RPM?

Nicely photographed! I don't find these troubling at all -- perhaps my dentists have been too gentle. :)

About the diamonds, I'm thinking these are probably embedded in a nickel coating on a steel substrate, much like the sharpening stone photographed HERE.
