  • There's nothing we can do for you. You need a dentist, hon.

  • Also you cant see them in the front unless your looking at them from the sides.. it looks like i took a drill and just put a whole there, but if you look from the inside out.. my teeth are all black and gross

  • Pregnancy can cause or worsen dental problems, yes. But the decay you're describing sounds pretty severe.

  • If you can see a dentist, do so. If you're not a meth user, try a flouride toothpaste or ask the dentist for the prescription stuff Periomed. i'd get it looked at though. Take vitamin D and also Tums as a calcium supplement.

  • Decay that is left unchecked WILL make you extremely ill, and that will be a heck of a lot more expensive than getting it taken care of now.

  • A dentist can work with you on a payment plan. I would highly suggest going. I had a tooth like that and I refused to go to the dentist. Until i ended up in the ER. I had an abscess the size of almost my whole mouth. If it gets bad enough you could very sick.
