I am in my early 20's and every tooth in my mouth is a disaster, the dentist said they all have cavities. Since I was 10 years old, I've always had problem with my teeth. They were always been very sensitive and they were badly crooked. When I was 17 years old, I got braces but I have not completed the treatment because I can't stand the pain and discomfort with the appliances. I never went back to the orthodontist. I tried my best to take care of my teeth but the way they are crooked makes it really hard to clean every corner with a toothbrush and to floss as well. When I noticed a big cavity at the back of one of my front teeth, I visited the dentist. (I never went to the dentist since the time I stopped wearing my braces). She did a root canal. When I got the crown fitted in, I was in a lot of pain. After several visits to have it corrected, nothing good is happening so I finally stopped going to her and decided to go to another dentist.
The new dentist after performing some x-rays said, I have several forming on most of my teeth. He wanted to save my teeth through fillings, canals, and veneers. I told him I can't afford all of those dental work. I told him I want to have my teeth extracted and have or to replace them. He declined because he wants to save my teeth. The third dentist that I went to told me the same thing. What should I do? My teeth are rotting and I don't have thousands of dollars to save them. Please help!!!
