I'm now 23 this past march I had all my top teeth and half of my bottom teeth taken out. Cause I couldn't deal with the pain I was in from having them. I would be able to eat anything without crying because of it hurting so bad. Ater my teeth got pulled out it took about 6 months for my gums to heal all the way. The I got my false teeth. I can what ever I want and not be in pain from it I love it. I just want to know how many more people are out there like me. How many people that are around my age that are going through this or have gone through it. That are suffering from pain and are afraid of having there teeth taken out? If I had to do it all over again I would in a heart beat.

That sounds terrible! Why did you have to have your teeth taken out? I mean, what was wrong with all of them? You're only 23? Well, I guess it's good that you're feeling better, that is the most important thing. I have all my teeth and I've never gotten a cavity even, so I can not relate to your situation at all.

We'll problems run in my family with our teeth me and all my sisters and mom and dad have problems. My dentist keep trying to rebuild them. But after I had my two children they took to much vitamins and stuff from me which helped with it. But unless I tell someone I have false teeth can't tell they all look real.

Well its been almost a year since i've had my teeth pulled out. My mouth doesn't hurt. I've had my false teeth for alittle over 6 months now. I can eat anything I want with them without it hurting. So i'm really glad I did it.

We have very bad teeth in my family. I recently found out even my grandfather had false teeth by his mid 30s. So I guess your genes could play a ery large part in it. No matter how good I take care of my teeth they are all the back ones are breaking. I go to the dentist alot and it seem no sooner does he fix them tht they break again. Its painful and cost lost of money to fight to keep your teeth. So I feel for you Im not much older then you and am slowly heading in your path. no matter how much I fight it. So dont feel bad you shouldn't if you did all you could.

Oh I did all I could I brushed my teeth aleast twice a day. I drink plenty of milk. I went to the dentist all the time to have my teeth taken care of and all they would do is fall apart. So thats when I decide to have them pulled out.
