Going to the dentist is already scary, but now patients at the Good Dental Clinic in St. Petersburg have one more reason to fear getting their teeth examined.

According to this video from Press TV, this horrifying sculpture sits in the reception area of the Russia-based dentist's office. Looks like they picked the most unnerving piece of "art" they could possibly find and placed it in the exact spot that would make you the most anxious.

The sculpture was created by artist Mariana Shumkova, who used real human teeth extracted from patients. The bust has several mouths, and although it does not have eyes or a nose, it does weirdly have ears.

We do have to say, the sculpture does remind us of a much less lovable version of a certain someone...

Except this sculpture ain't gonna help you find buried treasure.

At least having the scary bust on display will inspire patients to avoid the dentist at all costs and people will start taking better care of their teeth. Don't be surprised if the rate of people flossing in St. Petersburg suddenly skyrockets.
