Eammon explained the particulars of his toothache in an Instagram Live session, revealing that it had worsened while in isolation, and due to lockdown rules he was prohibited from visiting a dentist.
He said: “I’m not a well man. I had a bit of a toothache in January and I went to the dentist. He said, ‘Well that’s very strange because that tooth hasn’t got a nerve in it’.
“So he took an X-ray and said, ‘There must be some remnant, take some antibiotics but there’s a danger it could need a lot of work done, maybe an extraction.’ So I thought, ‘Forget that, I’ve too much to do – can’t take time off work.'”
He continued: “Now I’ve got time off and a lot of time on my hands, my goodness my toothache has decided to come back. If I eat, press down on it, if I drink something hot or cold, if I talk or just breathe it hurts. So I’m on antibiotics at the moment but the dentists won’t appear again until maybe July.”
