If you have one or more missing teeth, you're not alone; 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. Many adults in their senior years are missing all of their teeth. The biggest reason why people lose their teeth is issues with oral hygiene. Cavities and other dental problems can cause teeth to fall out, as can injury to a tooth or even old age. Luckily, you can get a tooth implant put in place if you have a missing tooth.
I grew up in a home with parents who did not insist on good dental hygiene. By the time I was old enough to know better, some damage had already been done. I had many cavities, crooked teeth, and some discoloration on my teeth. I knew it would not be easy to take my smile from where it was to where it is today, but I was determined to finally have nice teeth. I visited a dentist who was very nice and never judged me. We made a dental plan together. Spreading the procedures out over time made it much easier to afford them. I now have almost perfect teeth after all that hard work! I created this blog to help others who have dental problems that stem from bad childhood habits know there is hope! It is never too late to start seeing the dentist!
