Your teeth can always be a source of comedy, and when it comes to making puns, using facial features such as a person’s teeth is a great idea.
Obviously, you are not making fun of their teeth, you are just making fun of the topic in general. When you are with a group of people or just taking part in a contest about hilarious yet terrible jokes, this article might come in handy.
In the following few paragraphs, we will be discussing some of the most common teeth puns out there. Of course, the following article won’t just focus on puns about teeth (that would make it quite boring), but we will also punctuate this with a bunch of puns about other topics.
Let hilarity ensue!
“What happens after you go to the dentist a few times? Well, you know, the drill.”
What’s the one thing that scared you the most when you went to the dentist as a child? Of course, it was the drill that was used by the dentist! Many people have horrific memories of looking up as the dentist moved closer and inserted the drill into their mouths to clean their teeth or remove an infection.
“You know the drill” is also a common phrase that means a person already knows what they have to do or what to expect. When making this pun, the aim is to make sure that you stop during the sentence, for instance, at the comma. The pun is on the word, “the drill,” and it’s definitely going to get people laughing if you say it right!
“What did the dentist of the year receive? A little plaque.”
Well, this one’s a bit obvious, isn’t it? Why do you go to the dentist? Most people probably go to get plaque removed from their teeth, or when they want to get their teeth scaled and polished. Regular cleaning is essential and that is one of the main reasons why parents make it a habit from an early age to take their kids to the dentist.
However, the word “plaque” also means an ornamental tablet that is usually made out of metal or wood. Plaques are often given out to people who do something good or when they receive recognition for their actions. So, this one is a bit obvious. It’s also quite hilarious.
The thing about making good puns is that they are supposed to be terrible. Think of it as a “dad joke” game between you and other people. It’s all about making terrible jokes, as that is going to eventually make people laugh!
Fun addition: Why just stop at making puns about teeth? There are many theatre puns that you can try out as well. Here’s one that you will like: “An actor I know fell through the floor recently while acting. It’s just a stage he was going through!”
That’s not all however. There are plenty of time puns and jokes that you can try out as well. Time jokes are always fun and these puns are definitely going to get a few chuckles from the crowd. Here’s one: “A friend of mine bought me a watch that has stopped working. But, I haven’t told them yet. It’s never the right time.”
Another great topic that you can make puns about is trains. Trains are common and everyone knows about them. Here’s one of the most hilarious train puns that you will hear: “There are locomotive Olympics for which you have to train really hard!”
“Why did the king go to the dentist? To get his teeth crowned…”
Kings and crowns have a long history, and whenever we talk about kings, the image of a man dressed in regal clothes, with a crown on their head often comes to mind. However, for a dentist, a crown means something very different. In dental medicine, a crown is a cap shaped like a tooth that is placed on the visible part of a person’s tooth.
A crown is generally used to prevent a damaged tooth from further decay. So, the pun is on the word “crown” here. It’s pretty hilarious when you say it with a straight face, and it’s definitely going to have the desired impact that you were looking for.
Most people who have been to a dentist will already know what a crown is and they are definitely going to have a big laugh with this joke. The best way to deliver this one is to let your voice trail off at the end so that it has the maximum impact.
“I didn’t realize my uncle had a false tooth until it came out in the conversation.”
Arguably one of the most hilarious puns that you might have heard in a long time is this one. There are plenty of situations in which falsehoods often come out in conversations and lies are caught, but what about false teeth? Well, when you say it came out in the conversation, the image is going to be quite hilarious!
People are obviously going to laugh and it’s a fun way to deliver a hilarious pun. Make sure you keep a straight face and give a pause right after you say the pun so that it sinks into a person’s mind. It’s a pretty fun pun!
“What do you call a bear with no teeth? A gummy bear!”
Another absolutely terrible and absolutely hilarious pun that you can use is this one. Almost everyone in the world knows a thing or two about gummy bears; they were mainstays when we were children. Gums are also the soft and squishy part of your mouth where the tooth ends.
So, what about a bear that has no teeth? Well, it’s simple isn’t it? It’s a gummy bear! This is another quite funny pun that can make people laugh quite a bit.
“What’s a dentist’s favorite animal? A molar bear!”
The molar is a grinding tooth located at the back of a person’s mouth. Almost all mammals have molars in their mouth as it allows them to grind and chew their food properly before swallowing it. A polar bear, on the other hand, is an endangered animal that is found in the Arctic regions.
So, when you say this properly, it’s going to bring about a few laughs and chuckles from the crowd.
“How do you get a job at a dental office? By word of mouth.”
“Word of mouth” is a common expression that means promoting something by talking about it. Word travels from one person to another, and it’s a common phrase used in the advertising industry. Since dentists are specialists of the mouth, this one is actually quite hilarious.
The pun makes a lot of sense and it’s going to have a great impact on the crowd. You need to make sure that you deliver it the right way; however, give a pause after you ask the question and then make sure you put some emphasis on the answer on delivery.
