Stupid left mandibular first molar...

While I normally love seeing xrays -- of my own body or others' -- this was not fun to get this afternoon:

So that's my left mandibular first molar, the one with the crown (which I got after the tooth cracked from being drilled-and-filled three times), and there's some nice inflammation of the periodontal ligament and a teeny little abscess forming. I hate this tooth; it's the only one I've ever had problems with, but boy have I had problems with it.

Root canal is scheduled for Monday morning.  Wish me luck.  Yecch.
