A tooth doesn't usually have feelings, only when it experiences trouble does feeling commence. The pain of such an experience is usually enough for the tooth to seek assistance. The priest like figure of the "Buzz Man" is enough to send a jolt down any spine. And when the cavity is sealed, one can find comfort in the absence, a mechanism learnt that helps us deal with our pain. The ache is always there, only at times, we are not perceptive. When we possess we are cloudead by a smile and when we deaden we have forgotten how to smile.
