arent you american? arent americans supposed to have top gnashers?
but in america with no insurance
the absolute worst combination in terms of dental health
7 if you include wisdom teeth.
Fuck I am disgusting.
I eat a ludicrous amount of confectionery. I'm going to be in deep trouble at some point :( I do have a tremendous electric toothbrush and brush twice a day so it balances out I reckon.
My wisdom teeth have slowly ground my back teeth away.
But one of my two front teeth is bashed up from when I was accidentally pushed against a wall while playing indoor 5-a-side, and I chipped another on a beer bottle. So if it's a case of quality over quantity (which it definitely is) I'm in trouble.
and wisely decided to pay up to get it fixed back teeth is one thing, you can't really get away with being toothless in the front unless you're danny brown or scottish.
Given my diet it is a surprise I've only broken 2.
Haven't even lost all my baby teeth. My dentist was baffled.
Terrified they're going to take all my teeth out.
On the plus side, I don't have any wisdom teeth at all, they don't even show on an x-ray. I'm the next step in human evolution.
my wisdom teeth are still coming in
However I have so many gaps in my teeth I'm sure I could smuggle a few extra ones in somewhere.
Had 4 taken out because my mouth was too crowded. Have terrible teeth.
realising this was really heartening (I had to count). Thought I had had lots more out than that, I'm such a drama queen. No fillings though.
But you can't see that at all, it's at the very back and doesn't effect me eating. So whatever. No fillings or anything at all, pretty perfect gnashers superficially. But there's always the secret chip in that back one.
sub thread: i only have 28 actual teeth, isn't this too few? i always wanna ask my dentist.
I remember being told as a kid that adults generally have 32
Lost my two maxillary central incisors at the age of 10 at a school camp where we here having a sleeping bag race (unsanctioned) and my best friend stood on the back of my sleeping bag. Had both arms inside the bag and face planted. The teeth grew a little since then so the black dead stumps can be seen between my gums and the concrete replacements underneath.
Chipped my right maxillary incisor at the age of about 20 when I ran into a squash court wall trying to retrieve a drop shot.
My left mandibular second molar was chipped when I got a stone in some dal I was eating in Darjeeling. About three years later I developed an abcess and had it removed.
but had 4 permanent teeth removed at 13 then got a brace to pull the teeth back to fill the gaps.
Handy as well as my wisdom teeth have space now.
