The Mutter Museum in Philadelphia was originally opened in the 1900s for medical students to see in person extremely rare conditions, as well as the effects of diseases that had been cured or eradicated.

A French carving, dating from the 1700s, designed to look like a human molar. At 10.5 centimeters in height it depicts inside its two halves, “The tooth worm as Hell’s demon” an explanation of the toothache as a battle occurring with the mythical tooth worm. The legend of the tooth worm apparently dates back to 1800 BC Mesopotamia and even has its own creation myth.
