Sentence: (no offense to Gloria Gaynor) At first I was afraid, I was dentrified. Kept thinking I could never live if I should open wide. But then I spent so many nights thinkin' how my gums went wrong and I grew strong, and I learned how to go along. And so I'm back, my teeth to brace, You just walked in and have no chin with that thing on your face. I should have changed my worried mind, I should have made you rinse your mouth if I'd have known for just one second you'd be drilling north and south. Oh no, not I, I'm dentrified. As long as I can rinse and spit, I know that I'll revive. I've got all my teeth to fill, I'll just take this little pill and I'll survive, I will survive -- hey, hey!

Etymology: dentistry: care of the teeth + terrified: extreme fright
