i know some people who pays a lot of attention to their bodies and clothes and never mine about their mouth.having 4 teetn missing in the front and go around thinking it,s all good and have plenty of money to have the work done on the mouth.how can a person think clothes is more important then having work done on your mouth. a smile is a thing to waste,there is one thing if you can,t afford it but these people has plenty of money i wonder what is the problem thats stopping them from having there mouth fixed.

One thing comes to mind they are scared to go to the dentisit afraid of teh pain they might have to gothru to get fixed!. when all that may need to be done is put a bridge in. But I dont recomend the bridge for later the wiring to the bridge will wear those back teeth out.

Sometimes. Depends if I have the money or not. I don't have insurance so I have to pick and choose which is more important. My teeth are pretty healthy though so luckly I never have to worry about it. As long as I take good care of myself hopfully I won't have to go to the dentist.

sounds good but you can always go to the free clinic in your state and pay 20 dollars a year and get service if you need it..not just teeth but other health issues.

yes to have your mouth fixed makes you feel good it also affect our health when our teeths are bad.no one wants a tooth ache it,s very painful if you neglect the care of your teeth could cause some long term pain.
