Yes, they are all mine. I hope that I am fortunate enough to be like your aunt. What was her secret to being able to keep all of her teeth for so long? I need to go to go as well. It's not so much that I'm scared of the dentist, it just costs so much. But I won't be able to avoid it forever as I need a little work done. Darn those cavities!

Yes I know what you mean. It is so expensive to go to the Doctor.

I don't have a perfect set of teeth. Some teeth were lost when I was much younger and they did not grow back. I had wisdom teeth at four corners of my mouth and they have been removed also. I had decay in my four molars previously but fortunately after making efforts to take care of my teeth, I do not have any decay now. But I have one tooth that needs to undergo a root canal treatment, and at the same time the dentist move some of the teeth on the right side sideways to the front to close up a gap due to lost of a tooth. The treatment was tedious and unpleasant but I'm glad I survive it.

Unfortunately I don't have my upper teeth anymore. After I had all that chemo I noticed all my upper teeth seemed loose or something. So, I went to the dentist to make sure I wasn't imagining it. Turns out that the chemo damaged the upper bones that hold the teeth and there was no choice but to have them extracted before they caused even more problems. I HATE that I don't have them anymore and have to wear a denture! There wasn't anything really wrong with the teeth except there was no bone holding them anymore. Ah well, if that's what it took to get rid of the cancers, then it's ok and I'll live with it....I like to think of it as a trade-off lol.

My sister and are are extremely lucky with our teeth. The people on Dad's side of the family all have teeth like rocks. LOL They're great, and healthy in everyone on that side of the family and she and I both inherited Dad's family's healthy teeth. We've had very few problems with them throughout the years. I'm 27, and still have my wisdom teeth.

I am 35 years old and up to now have never had to have a filling in my life! I seem to have good teeth although these days I do get a bit more trouble with my gums which can be more of a worry than teeth trouble. Hopefully my teeth will last me the whole of my lifetime!

I have a good set of teeth. I have had a few of my back teeth taken out but all of the rest of them are good ones. I went to the dentist not too long ago. I need to get them cleaned again too.

I do still have my real teeth but I'm missing teeth almost the whole side on the right bottom part of my mouth and I do have a good dentist, My son do like her now and is one that don't like dentist. She is very good with the needle,she numb your gums first with a gell on a Q-Tips and than the needle comes after which goes all right.

No I don't and how I wish I did. I used to have really nice teeth, but over the years some of them have broken. I have dental issues but can't afford the dentist. I always brushed my teeth too. My big phobia is going to the dentist, so I am sure thats probably why I have problems now because I never went to the dentist. Thats really something for your aunt, don't we all wish we were that blessed. Good luck when you do go to the dentist.
