So this how I go.
Just go to the dentist man, put it on a credit card if you have to. The longer you wait the worse it will get and the more rotten and disgusting your mouth will be. Dentists are not as bad as you think.
Listen up dick licker, my filthy friend had 2 rotted teeth they had to be 100% pulled out, he went to a medical university where dental peeps were trained, long story short they pulled both teeth out and gave him painkillers for 55$ this is the states too look into that, also brush teeth you nasty faggot
>living at home
>one tooth gone
>another chipped below gum line
>another almost gone on the top
>half of one chipped completely
>root was exposed and just fell out eventually
So I'm gonna be missing probably 4 teeth in the next year or so.
I'm planning a swift suicide sometime in the next few years. Did drugs and neglected basic hygiene. Getting fake teeth it far too expensive to even consider, and dentures aren't going into my mouth unless I'm at the very least 40.
Its actually jumps between here in the states.
Heres what I'm looking at though as a California resident with no insurance:
Removal of completely bony impacted tooth: $582
Surgical removal of residual roots: $383
So just under 1000.
By brushing that much you probably fucked up your teeth into complete dependance. Your teeth are all probably completely fucked and ultra thin in covering.
Nice going, Mr. Toothpaste-a-week. That is not how you're supposed to do it. You fucked yourself up, and not in the week you couldn't brush but in the rest of your fucked up dental life.
There's not when you use normal amounts of toothpaste, but a tube per week means you basically submerge all your mouth in that shit bro. Brushing too hard is bad, but not as bad as using too much toothpaste.
Get a piece of random plastic, might be a plastic utensil, a lego brick, whatever. Go brush it 4 times a day with toothpaste. Repeat and repeat. Within 2 weeks you should be able to clearly see the plastic "melting" away. Literally disintegrating.
I brush once a day, once every two days when I'm staying at home, and my teeth are fine. Even when the dentist asked me how often I brush I said twice a day and she believed me.
Brushing too often will fuck them up
I brush 3 times a day with the softest brush available (GUM) and every time I put in a teeny tiny dab of toothpaste. About equivalent to a BB gun bullet. Every time I go to the dentist she tells me I have remarkable mouth hygiene and that at this rate I'll keep my teeth well beyond the grave.
Missing 3 teeth
Actually 5 but got 2 done
Get terrible pain in one
Appointment in 3 weeks
Get pain so bad every 15 minutes I go crazy
Go to dentist
Tells me they need to remove tlanother tooth
Tells me the 2 teeth I got done needs to be removed too since the other dentist fucked up and if I don't I will get even worse pain
This was 2 years ago, haven't brushed since
>I'm going to loose another one
>it's going to hurt
>I'm going to feel like shit for weeks after
>then its back to not caring again
You want to know why
I have been obese since I was 8 years old
I'm constantly snacking on something or drinking soda
If I brush I can't eat or drink anything for 40 minutes because of the taste
Something in my brain is fucked and I can't tolerate this
I can't stand to spend 40 minutes not eating
>Theres literally no way to fuck your teeth up by brushing and using mouth wash 3-4 times a day.
Now you have payed the price of failure
I managed to switch to juice for 4 months
Those 4 months I thought I was going to receive treatment for my weight
But they kicked me out because I couldn't loose weight so I stopped caring
Now I may be accepted by another institute tho so we will see
I slowly started watering down my beverages because I couldn't stand how all the juice and shit is so over sweetened. I've done it so long that I've actually come to hate how full strength juice and soda tastes. So much damn sugar.
You realize toothpaste literally has abrasives in it to wear down build up on your teeth. Brushing a lot, even softly, will damage the enamel. It's like sanding something softly, it will still wear down if you do it frequently
