The void

Let me recount you a terrifying tale, I was ordered to lay down on the chair, I opened my mouth to receive one swab of reddish gel to my gum, followed by three jabs of anaesthetic and quickly ended with 1 tooth pulled out…


I felt increasingly painful at my right second molar (one before wisdom tooth) since Sunday. God knows how painful it was, and how bad is my breath is (friggin’ horrible man!). So thats why I decided to make an appointment to Klinik Pergigian Inanam, paid RM60 to extract out my bad tooth, yes tooth, not teeth.

The tooth was actually chipped off bit by bit many months before, but I reluctantly ignored it. So that made way to its decaying and the ultimate pain. Now why would my tooth be chipped off? My wisdom tooth.

See that pic above? Yep, I believe the partial eruption of my wisdom tooth pushed out my second molar tooth, same thing happened on the left one but to date I felt no pain. But someday I will have to take that one out as well, time is ticking…

Anyway, after the extraction I requested to take back my bad tooth with me, went to work as usual after that.



Out of curiosity, I examine the extracted tooth, felt disgusted with myself. Damn, this thing has been in my mouth for months and I ignored it! When I got home later in the evening, I quickly bring my two little sisters and showed them the tooth saying, “This is what happens when you don’t brush your teeth regularly”. Both of them freaked out and felt disgusted, I sure gave them a good lesson.

For a few days or maybe weeks, no hot stuffs or touching the gum with finger or tongue. Here’s for a fast recovery so I can enjoy my tea again.

Once there was a tooth which works hard to grind food, now only the void fills up the empty spaces…






Goodbye dear tooth, you have served me well…
