My mother was 20 when she got a full upper plate. She was pregnant with me and bit into a soft pretzel at the boardwalk and her front tooth broke
It wasn't due to neglect either, just that apparently her being preg. was hard on her teeth.
She uses poli-grip and only takes them ut to brush and apply more poli-grip. She sleeps with them in and everything.
I had 4 babies in 5 1/2 years
my teeth aren't in the best of shape...luckily it's the back ones, the front are nice and white and straight. I am an avid flosser, I take good care of my teeth, but sometimes things are just out of your control.
Let me tell you how awful I feel after having braces as a kid, now some of them are rotten. I actually have the one that is completly hollow....it sucks so bad, but the dentist says it sucks to have a 1 tooth denture...so here i sit, getting infection after infection....just trying to figure out what i wanna do.
For me, it seems clear for you.
Get the freakin dentures!!!!
Think of how nice it'll be to have nice perfect teeth! It'll give ya a world of confidence!!!!!
If my front teeth were like my back ones, I would do it in a heartbeat!
Good luck mama!!
