I hope I won't have an absess in my worst tooth...it's a back molar at the end and it's been years since I checked it.
I see obvious signs of decay in the center of the "folds" on the grinding surface, and I've got a hole there too with a piece that came off(was broken off actually and still stuck to my gums for a long time before I even saw it was broken). It's started nagging me again lately, but really nothing more than letting me know it's there, or worse if I eat something cold or sugary.
In memory of Perach, who suffered and died needlessly.
I wish I could have been with you that one last time.
