When Decky Flamboon develops a "fang" ache the Doctor takes him to a medical facility in space in the 30th century. The dentistry area is full. Everyone seems to have developed toothache a few days ago just before the new dentist arrived.

Disabling the robots by tying them up with sonic dental floss the Doctor turns to the dentist. Using his sonic screwdriver to deactivate the dentists holographic disguise the dentist is revealed to bean Amorta. The Amorta are single-celled creatures from a pocket universe. On the Amorta's home world calcium is like gold. The Amorta sent out a telepathic message convincing everyone they had toothache. By pretending to be a dentist he was able to extract and collect as many teeth/calcium deposits as he wanted. The Doctor raises his sonic screwdriver and setting it to the right frequency causes the Amorta to vibrate away and forces it to return home. To make sure that Decky doesn't have anymore toothache the Doctor gives him a toothbrush!
