I'm sitting here at work and my eyes are watering from seeing so many of these changes in everyone and I CANNOT WAIT to post my before and after's. Truly I'm so inspired and seeing everyone happy and SMILING just makes me excited all over again.

Hope you all can hang out and wait another 8 months? o_O cuz that's when i'll be done. :(

YAY for EVERYONE!! :jump:

2 days post extractions and a partial denture fitted. Almost half way there. I have a wisdom and molar still to be removed from the right upper and they are going to clean up the bottoms and see where we go with those after that.

Absolutely beautiful!! I have been very apprehensive on what my teeth are going to look like - I will be able to keep most of the top teeth, losing most of the bottom and have been trying to imagine what I will look like. Your pictures have given me hope! Thanks so much for posting them! Maybe I'll have some beautiful pictures to post in a few days as well.

Woah! What a change, in the second picture you look like you feel awesome about the way you look! (And rightly you should.)

On another note, if you have the time, it would be awesome (and very helpful) to share your actual story in the forums.

This thread has been *DAMN AMAZING for me! (damn holding the "f-letter word" place). I was that moved by the transformations. Thursday is my first appointment back in 8-10 years, I'm 22, and I've let my teeth ruin my life for far too long. My decision was spurred long ago but I only decided to take action as far back as 2 months by applying for help through a charity but nothing came of it in the form of dental work. Now I've got some insurance and a little bit of money and I'm going in to talk to the DDS this week with high hopes for relief and a payment plan. All of your before and after pictures really sent a chill of anticipation down my spine but I don't want to get ahead of myself. I'm ready to face my fears and move on with my life thanks to all of you. I will be posting before and after pics just as soon as I have my after for putting up pics of my teeth in their current state would only add to my embareassment. Thanks again and I can't wait to also be able to smile!

I'm a bit of a lurker so I'll admit this is my first post (though I've been here frequently for a while, and I stumbled upon this thread!)

I do not have a B&A picture to show,
however this thread has inspired me quite a bit!
I'm off to the dentist for the first time in five years after...well..
not brushing much in that five years either (maybe for a whole six months?? which is super gross to say!):cry: I was a silly teenager, okay, I still am kind of a teen at nearing twenty, but I guess thats no excuse huh? :dunno:
I was hurt a lot by my past dentist, he wasnt careful at all, he stabbed and made my tongue and cheeks bleed, my gums. He missed and ugh, it was just awful every single time!


I'd brush nowadays but my gums are so sore when I brush.
I hate it, it hurts so badly! So I only do it when I feel I have to.

When it comes to dentistry, I worry a lot, my anxiety kills my stomach and its just awful! Do any of you feel that way? My teeth are not black, I have a few black spots on one front tooth, and its starting to spread I think, which is why I begged my sister to call an "emergency" (just xrays and a cleaning tbh) appointment for me today, in less than four hours! I'm scared, I hate the pain and I know I have a lot of tarter build up around the gum lines. I know I only have one tooth thats damaged, but maybe I have more? My previous silver fillings are hurting quite a bit for some strange reason, I hate they're silver, I would have went with white if I had the money! Would have, should have! :(

Anyway, my worries are over in the next six hours. You guys, your smiles have made me feel a lot better, and I hope this thread continues to thrive with photos and stories; I'm eager to hear them all, as I'm sure a lot of others are too. :D

Here's my before and after photo's. I am 45.old.jpgnew.jpg

I am 10 days post extraction of my 6 remaining lower teeth and 8 days post extraction of the 6 remaining uppers (I had partial denture on uppers for a few years too). Had full immediate dentures placed after each round of extractions.

It has been hard, dentures were/are very tight and keep needing some taken off, have mouth ulcers and now to top it off, oral thrush.

Still on almost liquid diet.

But I know it will be worth it in the long run and I am determined to make it work. Plan is to have implant retained denture on the lowers. Have had grafts in lower sites ready for the implants and also in upper to slow bone shrinkage.

It's amazing to look at my beofre photo now and realize just how bad they were :o
