horrible the effects of chemo and brushing my teeth helped to reduce my gums because of this I have ended up losing several teeth. I am hoping once I a get a job tht I will be able to get implants or bridges.

Good, exept for one that I need to have taken out and have a dental implant put in.
I had a root canal last winter but it has a crack and it gets infected under it.
I plan to keep it as long as I can and my plan is to have anti-biotics every 3-4 months forever(that's MY plan and I'm not sure my dentist will agree to this emoticon )cause having an implant sounds pretty painful,not to say expensive.

I'm sad to say, I only have 9 front bottom teeth. I have dentures- full plate on top, partial on bottom. I can't wear them because they do not have a permanent lining & both hurt.
One day I will get them finished.

my teeth were great until 2000, although I had developed TMJ pretty severely in my left jaw. After my first long battle with cancer I had to have all my teeth removed.
It was a relief to me actually, the dentures I have now are made to help my TMJ.
So my teeth are somewhere doing just fine on their own I am sure. emoticon

I have a lot of fillings and a couple crowns, and I have one tooth that pieces have broken away. However, it doesn't give me any problems. When the dentist discussed it with me, I told him I can't I can't affort to have a root canal and crown done. So he just tells me to keep brushing and flossing and keeping it as clean as possible. So I guess my teeth are doing well for my age.

blessed with good teeth. I think genes play a big role in it, as, much to my dismay, my dad likes to brag about never brushing his teeth until he was 14 or 15 and at 77, he doesn't have one cavity. I am happy to report, once he started brushing it was a habit he kept up!!!

My mother had a poor diet during pregnancies so we all (6) have varying levels of good to very bad teeth. Mine were not very good. I lost the top teeth and have dentures but the bottoms have all had major repairs and are excellent. Teeth are formed in the early part of a pregnancy and my 4 children have fantastic teeth. I was lucky and never had nausea and I ate very carefully while pregnant.

Not great. My top 2 front teeth are very crooked. I now need 2 root canals and 1 bridge for a broken tooth replacement. Now to find the money to do this. Sigh.

They're not bad for my age. My problem has been with teeth that were sensitive but they don't seem so bad now. 6 months ago when I had them checked several of them had "eroded", where the enamel has worn away, and I wasn't happy at this evidence of age! But modern dental techniques are wonderful and the eroded areas were sealed and my teeth feel less sensitive as well! I try to look after them as they are important for overall health.

My teeth were always bad. Many years ago I got false teeth. I need to have them replaced now, though as they are loose and are causing me pain occasionally.

In inherited bad teeth. Forty years ago I had many of my teeth removed because of periodontal disease. I have permanent bridges in place to replace most of those teeth that were taken. I still battle with my gums though and now have many crowns. Over all, I do not have toothaches. I do have jaw aches sometimes if I have been clenching my teeth while sleeping. A night mouth guard helps that. I am able to eat well with my teeth, as is evident from my weight!
