In April, 1903, I had the nerve of one of my front teeth devitalized and taken out without pain, and the outer cavity filled with gold.

The filling seemed perfectly satisfactory until two days after it was completed, when the tooth suddenly began to ache. As it did not respond in the least to my treatment, I went to the dentist and asked him to examine it. He found that in hammering the gold in, the inner filling had been pushed too far up into the apex of the tooth and that the filling would need to be taken out.

The parts were considerably inflamed and the dentist said that it would be impossible to refill it for a week at least.
