Forget the dentist, this is the hilarious moment a tech-savvy seven-year-old removes a troublesome tooth with his drone.
Surrounded by his mum and dad at home in Austin, Texas, USA, little Henry Gold is about to put the tooth fairy out of business with his ingenious dental extraction.
After a series of failed attempts, including tying a string around the tooth and slamming the door to eating hard fruits, the first-grader had finally had enough of his wobbly gnasher and sought about ridding himself of the toothache once and for all.
Tying fishing wire tightly around his incisor and attaching the other end to his drone, life-hacker Henry grimaces as he directs the drone away from his face, but as soon as the tooth suddenly flies from his mouth, he shouts ‘it finally came out’ in jubilation.
Mum Cecily said: “It was hilarious to watch.
“We’d literally tried everything, even trying to get the cat to pull on the string as it was tied around his tooth.
“But it doesn’t matter what we tried, it just wouldn’t budge.
“Then Henry came up with the idea to put his Christmas present to good use and try to remove it with his drone.
“We couldn’t believe it worked, I’m not sure Henry even felt it, he was just so happy to have it out.”
