well..not exactly a tooth.
The tooth imploded some time back.
[very odd how that happened..no warning to speak of]
While exploring what sort of bad news is lurking in
the pulp..I find this fiber.
using the Wright's stain to make it easier to distinguish
between tissues. [Wright's stain will result in red to blue colors depending on the pH of the specimen.]
The fiber surface is apparently alkaline..since it's
staining a nice shade of blue.
Oh, he's not very big..
only about half a millimeter..but that's not really the
point. I need to get an oral surgeon lined up to
break out what little is left of the tooth..clean out
the debris..get the roots out..somehow..just break it all
down to the jawbone.
