Unfortunately growing up my parents never took me and my siblings to the dentist that often and they would always scare us about the dentist pulling our teeth, so after I grew up and never went to the dentist either until it was too late. I went to them about 8 months ago , a lot of my teeth where rotted out and needed to be pulled . I was terrified , but when the sergeon told me that he will put me to sleep I was really relieved. They pulled about 17 teeth and I barely felt any thing afterwards. After that I saw the gum specialist and the dentist which did some implants and bridges for me , and finally this past week I finished all my dental work .It cost a little bit , but I guess that is the price of 52 years of neglect. I don't have to be embaressed in front of my family and friends anymore. I proudly smile all the time now. Several dentists worked on me for the past 8 months they were all greatand I am really happy about the results.
