Those cherries fairly do enclose
  Of orient pearl a double row,
    Which, when her lovely laughter shows,
      They look like rosebuds fill'd with snow.
      - set to music by Richard Alison,

My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.
      - Bible, Job (ch. XIX, v. 20)

My curse upon thy venom'd stang,
  That shoots my tortured gums alang;
    And through my lugs gies monie a twang,
      Wi' gnawing vengeance,
        Tearing my nerves wi' bitter pang,
          Like racking engines!
      - Robert Burns, Address to the Toothache

Some ask'd how pearls did grow, and where,
  Then spoke I to my girle,
    To part her lips, and showed them there
      The quarelets of pearl.
      - Robert Herrick,

Those cherries fairly do enclose
  Of orient pearl a double row,
    Which, when her lovely laughter shows,
      They look like rosebuds fill'd with snow.
      - Edgar Watson Howe

Thais has black, Laecania white teeth; what is the reason? Thais has her own, Laecania bought ones.
      - Martial (Marcus Valerius Martialis),

I have the toothache.
  . . . .
    What? sigh for the toothache?
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing
         (Benedick & Pedro at III, ii)

I will be flesh and blood;
  For there was never yet philosopher
    That could endure the toothache patiently,
      However they have writ the style of gods
        And make a push at chance and sufferance.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing (Leonato at V, i)

In the spyght of his tethe.
      - John Skelton, Why Come Ye nat to Courte
