Depends on the mud. Cavities happen from sugar and acids.. not soil... OP Probably part of drinking anything but water at night and not brushing before bed. When you sleep is when the most erosion happens on your teeth. Good luck!

Maybe OP's problem isn't that she doesn't brush her teeth well or often enough. Maybe she has some sort of issue..? Because that's pretty extreme. Fillings aren't that bad, though. I'm almost 17 and I still haven't lost all my baby teeth... It'll be fun being an adult and having teeth be growing in. Teeth issues suck!

Would OP even be alive if his brother was regularly slipping bleach into his toothpaste haha

maybe he eats too much sweeties. I brush my teeth twice a day but get cavities every once in a blue moon when I eat too Mich sugar

I have horrible teeth. I brush and floss 3 times a day and I have 4 teeth that DON'T have fillings. I'm 15!

I've got the same problem--and I brush twice a day and floss daily. Combination of weak enamel, night-grinding, and naturally craggy and fissured teeth will do it.

187 - That's a bit extreme. I'll hazard a guess and say you have receded gums as well. You're likely brushing away the enamel. Look into tooth soap/paste without glycerin. Glycerin coats the teeth with a sticky substance and can cause acids to eat away your enamel even more. Also, don't brush so hard.

I have a medical condition that makes my teeth a lot more weak than normal teeth so even though I brush 3 times a day, floss once and barely have any sugar I get cavities super often too. Maybe the OP has something similar?

Actually, I have teeth with deep crevices, and get cavities fairly easily. I brush twice a day and floss every other day out of habit, but sometimes I'll use mouthwash or floss more, etc. There doesn't seem to be anything I can do to avoid it. :( Even my dentist agrees that my teeth are evil.

My boyfriend has a condition that makes his saliva unusually acidic which causes him to have problems with cavities and the like. This person may not have poor hygeine they might have an actual problem.

Although I'm sure op deserves some of those fillings for not brushing or flossing, they could be one of the unfortunate people (myself included) who have weak to hardly any enamel and get cavities easier. also, I would get another dentist to take a look before getting all 10 done. Have fun with your face numb! :)

Not really, it's a fact. If OP had have used a toothbrush or floss they won't have been in this situation.

24- it's not a fact. It's a question. Do you see the "?" at the end of the sentence? That's usually how you know the difference. Fact: He owns a dog. Question: Does he own a dog? Opinion: He should own two dogs. See the difference? (that was a question)

Not everyone can afford to go to a dentist regularly. Granted this FML is a bit extreme and lives is canada but,please don't act like the dentist is cheap.

Dentist: you're gonna lose all your teeth. OP: why? Dentist: Cause if you never developed a relationship with Mr. Toothbrush by 19, I doubt you ever will. Seriously though, I've met some ppl with green fuzz on their teeth. Not attractive

Do you people seriously have no better way to entertain yourselves but to jump to conclusions and post ridiculously ignorant comments on here? Who said OP never brushes their teeth? It's more up to genetics than dental hygiene than dentists would have you think (of course). Some people don't even own a toothbrush and have perfectly healthy teeth (but not the best breath), while others brush and floss and wash like crazy and still have sensitive teeth and frequently develop cavities.

I don't think a doctor would lie... Too risky... The doctor did go to school for years on end to be able to want money money money, so shush.

dental is part of whatever benefits one receives through their employer, union, etc it's not all free you only get so much coverage

#94 The only time you get "free" dental care in Canada is if you are under 5 years old, you have private health insurance through your job, or you pay a private insurance company like Blue Cross. The Canadian government does not help towards teeth, eyes, or some other things (my daughter got a huge wart on her knee, and they won't freeze it off because it's "Not on her feet"). Our healthcare system is kind of a joke tho, my family doctor (They are called GP's in the states) i

Reply

127, Even then, the healthcare system will try to find a loophole. For example, one man complained to the head of healthcare because his medical clinic refused to treat his teeth. Their reasoning was because there was "not enough substantial damage". About a month later, that man lost 3 teeth.

Fillings hurt! So you're just gonna tell him you want to lose the teeth, right? I mean my grandpa doesn't have any teeth and he's a cool guy

Reply

A) fillings don't hurt. B). Your a post if you think the dentist freezes you. The dentist numbs you up not freeze you. How much of an idiot do you gotta be to think that

Reply

I've had a filling on one of my front teeth... It's didn't hurt a bit and I didn't have any numbing or pain meds... Plus my pain tolerance is low.
