So the title says it all. My teeth are horrible. Probably right up there with the worst you have ever seen. It kills me inside and out. The pain is nearly unbearable most days, but I have no choice but to go about my day like nothing is wrong. All of my teeth that Ihave left have cavities. I've lost atleast 7 teeth. None of them have just fallen out, they crack and crumble and break away. I don't even bother trying to brush them anymore. It hurts and my gums bleed. I made a major mistake of not taking care of them when I was younger. It only snowballed from there. I'm terrified to go to the dentist. I've only been to the er one time for pain. I was so shamed by the Dr it completely ruined any courage I was building up to see a dentist. I am so humiliated and embarrassed. It is taking all I have just to post here. I don't want sympathy, or lectures. I know I'm stupid. Most people always say they would love to go back and change something. I would have taken care of my teeth. I hate myself for it. It hurts every aspect of my life. The pain is becoming so bad I can't barely handle it anymore. It brings me to my knees at times. And I constantly fight back tears. It is hard to even talk at times. Lately I choke on my food. A lot. Because I chew and chew and thinks its good, but its never gets chewed well enough. Please. If you have any ideas what I can do or where to go. Please help me. I live in Minnesota. Anything helps. And please don't shame me. I do that enough myself and get constant reminders from others.
