Hi! Thank you for taking the time to read,
I'm 23, and I have no teeth ! .. In 2012 I was diagnosed with Hpylori, a serious stomach infection which left my stomach and digestion in ruins, I have suffered from a lot of vitimin and mineral deficiencies since then, the biggest one being calcium deficiency, however because of my stomach was damaged, I can no longer have dairy and milk to build up my calcium stores and 99% of the suppliments available contain dairy !..
In 2014 my teeth started to crumble and I was noticing large chips and cavities all over my teeth. I wouldn't smile Infront of people. I was doing modeling for a year in 2013 / 14 and some other models commented on my teeth so I stopped.
In 2015 I fell pregnant 😊😊 however, my little life inside me completely sapped me of my calcium !! So much so that my teeth began to chip after eating almost anything!. And I had very sore gums, lots of infections and a month after having my boy, I had 3 abscess in the space of 2 months.
In 2016, the dentist said that it would be best to remove all my damaged teeth and have a denture made ( like an old lady plastic one ) Initially I was thrilled, although after the surgery I was devastated as I didn't realise just how much they were talking out. I now have NO top teeth and my gums are receding a lot, and only 6 front teeth on my bottom row, which again are receding because there's no teeth so there's no need for gums 😭
I am only 23, and i have to glue my teeth in every day, I feel so embarrassed all the time and it's so obvious they aren't real.
I am worried about talking, kissing, eating, all incase they slip or feel unnatural.
The glue is horrible and expensive, and my GP is concerned that using so much glue might be effecting my stomach issues because of the chemicals and ingredients.
I have had various quotes over the years to have a set of teeth permanently fixed but will never be in a position to afford it, as my stomach health is so poor I am currently full time mummy. Looking at over £10,000 for a full set 😬
Please help towards my cause so I can regain my smile and my confidence. I have always had a good dental hygiene program but it made no difference once I got the Hpylori virus. Help me find my smile again, and enjoy eating and smiling and kissing and laughing and feeling 23 again and not 83.. I literally have to leave them in a pot at night - I already feel like I'm wasting away as I can't work and my stomach is currently ruling my life, I just want a young happy set of teeth again so at least on the outside, I look yoing and youthful !
Massively grateful to anyone who helps ! 😘😘😘
