I've been thinking about this recently. I was born three months prematurely. I was given a blood transfusion when I was a baby. I was wondering if this could be a reason why I have had problems. Also, I couldn't hold a pen and pencil properly when I was younger, so maybe I haven't been holding my toothbrush in the right way either, or I could have been brushing the wrong way. I used to have to see a professor when I was a child and do different tests. I find it strange that my parents and my younger brother haven't had the oral health problems that I have , but I have them. I did read somewhere recently that people born prematurely can have yellow teeth, but I don't know if that's true for everyone who is born early. Actually, I have read about other physical and mental health problems that they can have too. This could be a reason why I have anxiety too.I have anxiety about other things besides my oral health and going to the dentist too.
