A client was in for a home tooth after her ear specialist found the cause behind her unbearable earache.

Neel Raithatha, from Oadby, Leicestershire, discovered the tooth comb in his client’s ear last week [January 16].

The video footage shows the audiologist pulling the tooth comb from the ear canal and extracting it with a pair of tweezers.

It was revealed that his client had made the reckless decision to try and itch her ear with the hairdressing tool when a tooth began lodged.

After it had broken off, the client had reached out to the self-proclaimed ‘wax whisperer’ to try and fix the problem.

Neel added: “The client was fortunate that the sharp end, which was facing towards the eardrum, was not further lodged as it would have most certainly have perforated the eardrum.

“It probably was the worst thing I’ve seen stuck in an ear because of the potential trauma it could have caused.”
