Please take the time to read I know this is a long post but I really need help.
I have had the effects of Behçet’s since 2009 and because of the pain in my mouth I spent almost 5 years completely unable to use toothpaste or a toothbrush I was only able to use interdental brushes on top of that the only thing I was able to swallow was Coca Cola and I am including my own saliva in that, it was literally only coke I could get down even though I never touched the stuff before I was ill because of the amount of sugar in it anyway now my teeth are in such a horrible condition that I actually can’t look in a mirror without crying I don’t want to go outside and because of the embarrassment I I force myself not to smile or laugh and if I do I automatically cover my mouth with my hand I had to have the front of my top 6 at the front rebuilt because the had decayed so much and it doesn’t seem to matter what I do now they just keep breaking down I have holes in almost all of them and the backs of the front ones have holes in them too and I want to make it clear that I do brush my teeth and stuff now I take care of them they way they should be but it still keeps getting worse. This has sunk me into an unbelievable state of depression and anxiety both of which I am taking medications for so basically my question is has anybody else needed to have teeth replaced because of this and if so how can I get some help with mine I need them all replaced but I’m only 29 so I can’t have dentures at my age and if I had dentures I know they’d hurt when my mouth flares up again and my dentist keeps saying that I just have to wait until they completely break down and try to keep mine but on top of all that they hurt so much it doesn’t seem to matter what I eat or drink it’s just so painful all of the time. I Really Need Help and I don’t know where else to ask this question I can’t keep going back to my dentist for her to give me more fillings I was there last week and she told me I need another 8 fillings despite what I’m doing to take care of them and believe me when I say I’m doing everything I can myself to help them it’s just never enough.
I just want my straight while smile back so much that I’m actually crying while writing this.
I can’t live like this anymore.
