A video of filthy teeth being cleaned has been branded "painful yet satisfying" by viewers addicted to the sight of stubborn plaque being scrubbed away.
In the video, which has gone viral on TikTok, the camera shows a close-up of some very badly stained teeth which also seem to have erosion around the gums.
The dentist then starts cleaning the teeth with a scaler and big brown lumps of plaque and tartar are sent flying off.
Due to the poor hygiene of the gums, they start bleeding a little as the gunk is removed but the teeth themselves are left looking white and refreshed.
The top row of teeth are looking much healthier and the dentist then gets to start on the bottom row.
On the bottom,the buildup is even more severe but the scaler manages to scrape away the bacteria-laden bits of plaque.
The video was watched more than 65 million times and had two million "likes" but viewers definitely had mixed feeling about what they saw.
A viewer wrote: "Is it just me or is it very satisfying watching it?"
"Painful yet satisfying to watch," said a second.
A third user commented: "How the teeth are still white afterwards is magical."

Someone else said: "I mean it looks great after but my goodness I don't think I could do that! I'm cringing."
"It's like jet washing the driveway," joked another viewer.
According to the NHS, gum disease is caused by a build-up of plaque on the teeth which contains bacteria.
If you do not remove plaque from your teeth with brushing it builds up and can lead to redness with bleeding, swelling, and soreness.
When left untreated, gum disease can lead to receding gums, wobbling teeth, and even teeth falling out.
This comes after a dentist said you should never use mouthwash after brushing your teeth.
