Hi, my name is Andy, I'm 22 and I'm from the UK. Straight and simple I have never been to a dentist, and I'm scared of doing so because the current state of my teeth stops me from doing a number of things, such as smiling, laughing with my mouth open, chewing properly even talking sometimes because I fear people will judge me on my teeth. My current state is I have 3 missing back teeth and I think I have an infection in one of my front teeth and the two teeth next to my front tooth's are decaded and mostly all are bad shape and have currently my wisdom teeth coming through. I do brush 2 times a day, when as a child I never did, I didn't start properly brushing until around 16-17. But the damage to my teeth was already done. I have never spoken to anybody about teeth, not even my family. I just don't know what to do anymore, I just want the pain to stop.
