I don’t know about you, but whenever I had a wobbly tooth as a child and relentlessly fiddled with it, my parents always threatened that they would tie a piece of string around it and slam the door, in an attempt to drag out my increasingly wobbly tooth. This idea is thought to have originated from the Victorian era but has lasted a great deal longer than many of their traditions. It is, however, perhaps a strange topic to write about but relevant, I feel, as originally door handles and door knobs would have been used in this process. But can you guess what they have been replaced with?
No one is Droning on about Door Knobs or Door Handles
Last week, it became apparent that door knobs and door handles had a new rival, when it went viral that multiple children were asking their parents to pull out their wobbly teeth by using…drones! A drone is small, radio controlled, helicopter like device with an inbuilt camera (often multiple) which are designed to be controlled from a smartphone or tablet.
The Victorian Door Knob Method
Malcolm Swan, for example, used a quadcopter drone, in order to remove his son, Adams loose tooth. Together, this was done by attaching dental floss tightly to the tooth in question and initiating the drone to fly. If the reaction of Adam in the illustrative video is anything to go by, it does not seem to be a traumatic or painful experience but one of ease, excitement and great success. However, there are many stories that involve drones and child tooth extraction which are nowhere near as successful or as pain free, so as much as we are pleased that Adam had a lucky escape, perhaps we should all stick to using the old fashioned, tried and tested Victorian method, which never fails – door handles and door knobs!
