Storyline

A man who is troubled with a very bad tooth, tries in various ways get rid of it, with no success. He attaches one end of a string to a door knob, fastening the other to the troublesome tooth, slams the door shut, with no result. He goes to a dentist, who after five or six attempts, in despair calls upon his assistants for aid, and their combined strength fails to remove the tooth. He eventually hits upon a plan, realizing that only sheer force will rid him of his molar. He hires an automobile, fastens one end of a stout cord to the machine, the other around his tooth, and with a puff and a hard pull the tooth is removed. A short subject with a hearty laugh.
