Hi, I need some advice please. I’m 45 and I have struggled with my teeth from being a little girl. My front teeth were knocked out due to an accident when I was 8. I have been told ever since I was a little girl that I have poor teeth and gums. I don’t smoke. I drink occasionally. I feel all my life I have had treatment on my teeth or gums. I’ve just paid out again over £1500 to have deep cleaning on my gums (which as you will be aware is not a nice experience) my front teeth have formed a gap. I’m thinking of the 6 month smile, which again will cost a lot of money. Then my front 4 teeth which are caps, replaced with new ones. Not sure of cost of that yet. I know some of my teeth are going to have to be removed as they are very painful. My gums constantly ache. Shall I give up and go for full dentures and have all my teeth removed? The thought of no more pain is very appealing. Help!
