Britain’s Worst Teeth follows four twenty-somethings with some of the worst teeth in Britain. Their teeth are so bad they affect every aspect of their lives. They are in pain, they are embarrassed to go out, they find eating and speaking difficult, they find it difficult to attract partners.
As someone in the dental profession I see mouths like these every single day. Everyone patient has there own back story. We don’t judge. We come up with the best plan of action to get there mouth healthy and get there smile back and educate them on how to maintain it.
Jennas mental health must be so bad, she had the opportunity to have her teeth completely fixed and couldn’t go through with it, I hope the makers of the tv show continued to help her and that the offer to get her teeth sorted was still there
Her parents are also sort of guilty for her bad teeth conditions. She’s only 20. It’s not like her teeth have gotten worse in two years.
This makes me think of two relatives of mine, both of whom were dentist-phobic. Both died from a heart attack, which can happen when you neglect your teeth to that extent. This is a life-threatening condition that goes far beyond the mouth. Blessings to them all, and I hope they can really recover.
I live in the south of Brazil. In my city, dentists go to schools, look at all students and make an appointment to go to the health center. None pays anything, all for free. Also the teacher is responsible for notifying the secretary if any children have a cavity. Dentists go to schools and teach them how to brush their teeth. England is such a rich country, there should be a school program to serve children.
As a young kid, I hated going to the dentist. But now, I visit my dentist regularly. I guess the reason for my change of attitude was, at some point of your life, you just realized appearance does matter in almost every aspects of your life. Besides, being healthy and having a good dental condition are always beneficial for oneself.
This hits close to home for me. I’ve been on a journey my entire life to have good teeth. Unfortunately mine was genetics. I visited the dentist every six months and always took care of them. Had braces and even partial veneers. My veneers failed and that was not my fault. They weren’t attached correctly. It’s horrible to feel this way, and I feel sad for anyone in that situation. Glad they are all getting help. I guess the moral of this story is…that girl’s room is full of Tupac and DMX posters, and paraphernalia, and I’m living for it. 🖤😉
