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!
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.
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.
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! :)
1- That's rude.
Ten filings, when is the last time you were at a dentist? YDI for your nasty ass mouth
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.
#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) is booking into *June 2017* for regular check-ups! Thats COMPLETE crap, I bet that kind of bullshit doesn't happen in the States. I would gladly pay the $50 (thats how much they charge if you don't show up without cancelling) to not have to wait 6 freaking years!
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
