Nobody likes going to the dentist...well, except for this guy.

An inmate at a prison in Sweden recently escaped from the facility so he could go to the dentist.

Apparently, the man, 51, was in agony and had asked prison officials to get him medical attention, but was shot down. Even though he was only serving one month in a minimum security prison, the man decided to make a break for it.

He found a dentist, who treated his inflamed tooth. Then, instead of enjoying his self-imposed furlough, the convict turned himself in to police, who brought him back to the prison.

For his actions, he got one day tacked on to his sentence.

Here’s hoping he doesn’t experience any other maladies before his release.
