It cost Anna Tew nearly $3 to finish her transformation into the undead. But the expense grew when her fake teeth wouldn’t come out.

“I was trying to remove them then because they were just tight,” Tew told WKRG. Tew used the glue that came with the teeth, however, the adhesive wasn’t temporary.

Tew says, “It went on and on and I was trying to get them out, and after it was over with, I tried until it was like 2 o’clock this morning. They wouldn’t budge.” Tew continued, “I even took a pair of wire clippers and cut the tips off of those.” She says she was in excruciating pain but wasn’t sure whether to go to the emergency room. Eventually, she found an emergency dentist who could help.
