How are your teeth holding up? I have 5 badly damaged teeth, luckily they are all in the back, but its getting harder to find places in my mouth to chew with. If only dental work didn't cost so much.

 No.293205

Get some dentures

 No.293209

Pretty bad, but not too bad. I have 12 fillings, at least 5 teeth with cavities (most likely more because I rarely floss), one molar missing, most likely lose another two soon.
But I'm more concerned with my eyes, I have astigmatism my right eye sees worse than my left eye and it's driving me insane, I can't enjoy video games because of it and I can't afford glasses.

Stop brushing with fluoride and other "whitening" acids that burn the healing layer of our teeth off
Decontaminate only with alcohol and salt water to preserve good bacteria
Chew mastic gum or tough foods. Will encourage your body to fill loose gaps between gum and tooth
if want sugar just chew with your tongue to not force it in to your teeth crevices
Avoid mouth breathing and excessive smiling, dry teeth are weak teeth
No crunchy salty snacks, might as well chew sandpaper
Avoid chewing sandpaper

Don't give the dental industry the hair off your butt

Had 2 cavities, got them filled in Panama for $60, while on a trip. I felt like some international billionaire who just found another way to game the system.

They are completely fucked and held together with hope and DIY fillings.
I need that full $40k rip-and-replace thing but, well, $40k.
It’s hilarious how much was spent on retainers and braces and all of that when in the end my teeth just completely disintegrated starting in my early 20s.
They actually weren’t *that* bad until COVID. The final combo of neglect and, for some reason, a brief affair with Kratom, completely did them in.

Okay I guess, got a couple crowns now. Taking better care now.

Really though you'll just have to bite the bullet at some point, preferably soon. Dental problems will only get worse and can lead to abscesses and more serious infections.

Yeah phosphorus, calcium and magnesium are very important for teeth. And know that nearly all nuts, whole grains and legumes contain high amounts of phytates which greatly reduce absorption of said minerals. This is why vegans are often unhealthy with shitty teeth. But if you ferment and/or sprout it will eliminate most phytates. The best is with wheat and rye sourdough bread, which eliminates like 80-90%, and with sprouting it will get the rest and increase other nutrients.

Good information. I'm halfway through getting $3500 of fillings done. I left it 12 years and thought I'd need to get them pulled out but luckily only required fillings. Even the cavities under the gums.

I eat terrible and rarely sleep due to porn addiction.

They're reasonably fucked due to neglect

 No.293987

I'm nearly 30 now and have a few cavities and no dental insurance or money. It doesn't help that I can't stop grinding the shit out of them and now have noticeable wear.

Fuck my life. By 40 I'm probably going to look like Quentin Tarantino.

Just a basic cleaning is over $140 these days (without x rays).
I had insurance from work, but when I left it ended.

The easiest way to maintain pristine teeth is by brushing once before going to bed, then rinsing with alcohol based mouthwash.

That will remove any food debris and kill any bad mouth bacteria that causes decay.

Make sure you get a good manual toothbrush and make sure your teeth are getting cleaned properly by sliding your tongue across your front teeth and making sure it's smooth.

 No.295554

Not so good. I did manage to have a little bit of work done through some voucher package that I managed to get with my insurance where I didn't have to pay. But that ran out before they could get finished with me. I believe I have a cavity that they missed or finally fully became one since I was at the dentist last. I'm just glad I managed to get my wisdom teeth removed. They were starting to rot out one by one causing me to get nonstop infections. But they were the only real bad teeth that I had. I guess it could honestly be worse. I'm luckier than a lot of other people around my age that I know. A good bit of people in my area have already lost 7 to 8 teeth while I've only had my wisdom teeth removed. So techinally I still haven't lost any.

That destroys healthy bacteria and hence is likely to give you bad breath

 No.295561

>>295559
Many good (and bad) bacterial cultures throughout the entire body can survive alcohol when they are suspended in mucus and saliva. Synthetic non-alcoholic antibacterial agents though, the kind most common due to their compatibility with halal and kosher rules on alcohol use, kill more bacteria overall including the good ones while breaking down mucus. Alcohol isn't ideal but it's better for oral health than the popular alternative.

Raw red meat contains much of the donor animal's good bacteria, as well as some natural bad bacteria killers. Chewing beef or lamb and then flossing what is stuck inside is the best path to a clean mouth.

It actually eliminated bad breath.

Stop talking out of your ass.

I used to have chronically bad breath when i was a young teen and it was my experience

although now that i look back i believe it was chronic dehydration

 No.295645

No problems yet, even though I don't brush my teeth and eat a decent amount of carbs/sugar. I think it's mostly about mineral deficiencies which lead to weak teeth. For that I recommend eating a lot of animal products.

 No.295659

It's visually going bad, at least 3 bad teeth and gum retracting. My doom spiral has going down quickly and brushing the teeth or even eating has been a immense amount of work.
