>legitmatly think about killing myself daily for the last 10 years. >figured do it eventually do it so no point in taking care of myself. Havent brushed my teeth for 10years. >molars are rotting and have massive holes and peices missing >want to see a dentist but am to embarrassed. Not because I care what they think, but I know that I'd have to justify to them why i never took care of my teeth. I'd have to tell them that i think about killing myself. I'm afraid that they'd report me to mental health authorites. >the one hobby I have, the one thing that gives me enjoyment is shooting sports and guns. And if I am reported to mental health authorities then they'd take away the one thing that i get legitimate enjoyment from >then i would really no reason left not to kill myself.
>no dental insurance for years >wisdom teeth popping out >wisdom tooth BREAKS >panic for weeks since no money >eventually come to grips with it since there's no pain >another wisdom tooth breaks >find cavity in a 3rd one, probably on it's way to breaking >first broken tooth keeps chipping down more and more still no pain an any wisdom teeth yet >got health insurance/dental now >don't really feel like getting them out
I figure even if they rot away I'm still alright because who gives a fuck about wisdom teeth?
Figure I'll just fix it when I get some significant pain or more money. I hear it's expensive, and I'm a pussy so I'll want full sedation.
>>25739167 you dumbass, all you have to say is "I don't want to talk about it" IF they bring it up, which they probably won't. You do realize that they lose a customer if they push you away, right? They're not going to do that, especially if your teeth are super shit, because you're guaranteed to be a good customer if you're actually getting serious
>have crooked teeth >one front tooth sticks out in front of the others >looks pretty fucked >still clean and healthy because i brush properly >still haven't gotten braces at 20 since poor and now in college poor
My teeth look alright from the outside, except for maybe your average overbite, and my front two teeth are kind of big, but two of my back molars have been falling out in chunks for the past few years and I recently lost like half of my front incisor on the right. It's not noticeable though, since it's the front half.
I am irrationally terrified of the dentist, though. I fucking brush and since and flossed religiously and it pisses me off that this still happens to me. Apparently some people never brush and have perfect teeth. I guess a lot of it is genetics.
yep. Bite and the quality of them. I make sure to brush my teeth twice a day using a soft brush, at least 2 minutes each time, floss nightly, use antiseptic mouthwash and yet they're still awful. Got a clean from a dentist 3 months ago.
How exactly are they awful, color wise? Personally I think the only problem worth worrying about is gingivitus and the ensuing periodontal disease. Cosmetics are a waste of money unless they're really, medically neccesary.
quick bro tip for any of you with a severe toothache.
take diphenhydramine (benadryl) capsules and snip them open and collect the powder. off brand works fine. Collect the powder of a few of these and pour it onto the affected cavity or broken tooth. Do NOT inhale from your mouth doing this. Hold the powder in and allow saliva to mix with it. Don't spit or swallow the shit for 10-15 minutes. It will kill the exposed nerve and relieve the pain. it can take 1-3 of these "treatments" to do the job but it can hold you over until you get to the dentist. spit the mixture after you're done, rinse with warm saltwater, and be careful drinking. the numbnes in your mouth with go away eventually.
>tfw parents took me to a shit dentist to have my root canal done a few years ago >cap broke off maybe two months after the procedure >broken bits of the remnants of my tooth fall out every couple of months >not on their plan anymore, can't do anything
My teeth are rather fine if not a bit crooked despite wearing braces (because teenage me did not give a fuck about retainers), but I have an underbite so I can't smile while showing teeth without looking crazy. There are procedures to fix it but they're expensive (and not always covered by insurance), have a pretty intense recovery period, and can alter the appearance of your face due to refitting the jaws. Not sure how I feel about that.
>go to the dentist for cleaning >first time i've gone in over a year >new stacy hygienist working there >shames the hell out of me because my gums bleed >goes on how about how my teeth will fall out and pretty much resents me
and i haven't gone back for over a year an a half, fuck that
I'm fighting mine by swishing in alcohol based listerine followed by a milder nonalcoholic mouthwash after every starchy and especially every sugary meal or snack. And also brushing with baking soda which acts as an entiseptic and digs down deeper than listerine does.
I think the way to really get rid of the gingivitis would be to get the calculus removed from deep inside gum pockets? I'm thinking of buying dental pics. In fact I already got a couple but am scared of using them because once upon a time a dental hygeinist told me she saw scratches on my enamel and wondered if I'd been self scraping.
Also perhaps water pics might help too, they're like painless flossing. I never floss, I just can't do it.
>>25738654 2 cavities, one broken tooth and and overbite. No mouthbreather tier thankfully. Not bad at all considering I haven't go to a dentist in 10 years and I drink a shit ton of coffee and coke. Too selfconcious about the broken tooth because its visible when I laugh.
