Hi there, I am 18 and I have been going to the dentist for as long as I can remember, when I was 7-10 yearS old I had all of my baby teeth removed due to an addiction to sweets as a child, after that point in time my adult teeth can through. When I as 14 I had to go to the orthodontist to have braces as my teeth were unaligned when they grew through. Ever since I was a young boy I never got into the habit of brushing my teeth, hence having at least 1 filling on each tooth which is what I have now. Even though I myself am very upset and embarrassed about my teeth I still cannot get into the habit of regularly brushing my teeth. I have recently got really bad decay and all of my tooth enamel is gone. I am especially concerned about losing all my teeth by the time I’m 21 and I seriously do not want that to happen. A few factors which need to be set are that I’m also a smoker and I know this will/can cause mouth cancer but I enjoy smoking and am not looking to quit any time soon. Is there any advice you can give me.
