    At this point you must conquer your fear and go or you will eventually lose your teeth. People with healthy gums and teeth don't really need a dentist but once it gets diseased you must go. You can do it anon.

                not him but tbh you just look like you need a cleaning. You go in, they basically use tools to pick that stuff off and then polish it. Takes like 20 minutes and you walk out with brand new teeth basically. Does it hurt?

                They don't hurt at all but they bleed easily if I put too much pressure when brushing, plus there's plaque on the back that you can't see on the photo.

                I bet the bleeding is being caused by the plaque. Mine was. It bled every time I brushed. Go and get a cleaning. It’s an extremely common fast procedure it’s literally standard. Everyone has it done. It’s not comfortable to do but it doesn’t hurt man. Just say you want a scale and polish. That’s what it’s called in bongland anyway. Your teeth will feel brand new and after a week or so of brushing and flossing the bleeding will stop. Do it man what you have isn’t even feel bad tier. It’s like, taking your car to a car wash tier

                The one I got from my dentist is definitely significantly softer than the “soft” toothbrush I got from the supermarket. They’re not expensive or anything. Like a fee £. I mean I can’t say for sure what is the softest toothbrush at your local shop mate you could be from Afghanistan or Antarctica. Pretty much every dentist I’ve been to sells toothpaste, floss and a few different brushes at reception

                bro your gums will recede and reveal the roots of your teeth, which will make them rot, loosen, and fall out. You are going to be a lot more embarrassed when you look like a methhead with rotting and missing teeth, than if you just go to the dentist now and get this shit fixed

                Yeah he’s right it’s not a problem now but it will be. Once you get it cleaned your guns will heal to some extent but how far they can go really depends. The less damage you allow to happen the better

                if OP moves quickly enough, you can even have gum grafting done, which is a relatively common inexpensive procedure that can restore the gumline so your roots aren't exposed

                Your choice
                Options:
                1. Leave - if not symptomatic and don't bother you, you'll probably be okay. There's a risk that they could become infected and cause a pain/abscess. Leaving them does have the benefit of maintaining bone incase you ever wanted an implant in the future. Your choice

                Like I said, don't let bleeding stop you. You must brush your gumline well.

                Use colgate total. Read the ingredients and get the one with triclosan in it and get a soft tooth brush. Also get a flouride mouth rinse to use after brushing. On top of this gargle and rinse your mouth out one time a week with warm salt water.

                There is some evidence of triclosan being useful. In all honesty I can't remember the evidence, dental school feels like an eternity ago. He should use a rechargable electric brush - with a pressure sensor. It slows down if you press too hard. Like the oral-B pro 2

                Extract - you don't have to worry about them becoming infected

                My concerns at this point are the integrity of the front teeth, both top and bottom, the receding and bleeding gums. The teeth in the back don't bother me that much beside being conscious when full open mouth smiling and eating hard foods.

                Back to the F- garden gnome argument
                I can say that fluorapatite is more resistant to wear/decay/erosion than the natural from (hydroxyapetite) - which is the evidence to why fluoride is useful.
                This 'nano' variant is not something i'm familiar with - but if you can enlighten me I'm open to new ideas. I always try to expand my knowledge

          Dude I have never taken any drugs or mind altering pills nor will I ever. You remind me of a random sports doctor during pre season checks that wanted to prescribe me the same shit when I told her I was neglecting my teeth due to being afraid of seeing a dentist.

          nah, my teeth were kind of fucked up before Covid, had an appointment but then the dentist office closed. Then I kept putting off rescheduling it, so it had been like 3 years since I'd seen a dentist and I hadn't been taking care of my teeth properly. My gums were really inflamed. I'd also been putting it off because I was embarrassed, worried about the pain, and worried about the cost. But eventually I got over it and went.

          They weren't rude or anything to me, just told me that I was going to have to do a better job maintaining my gums, and come every few months to get worked on. Now my teeth and gums are much better.

      Kek. Any idea what caused the pain?

      They took mine from the roof of my mouth, in about a month you don't notice it anymore.

      How bad were your teeth? How would you classify the entire procedure?

      Lol, "used to it"? Your nerve endings have literally atrophied. You are now at a stage where you could get an infection (or worse) and not even notice it.

      Maybe but isn't it based how the body just finds a way to get rid of the pain?

    Do teeth have a "lip" or line of rougher and darker surface underneath the game or are they smooth from top to bottom?

    OP, I started going to the dentist again after 18 years of not going. I had tooth decay and 15 cavities despite flossing/brushing/rinsing. You are an adult, or need to act like one here. You will not get better without their help, you will not maintain and "be okay". It will just get worse. The pain you are in now from indecision and fear is worse than ACTUALLY GOING TO THE DENTIST AND GETTING SHIT DONE. I'm a third of the way through my filings, it's all going to be okay. Save what teeth you can.

    You must see a dentist, OP, do no be embarrassed. They take grafts from soft tissue in the gums and transplant it

    Get this shit fixed asap.

    I need a filling myself but its cosmetic. The problem you have is not just the tooth surface but if its like pic related its actually going into the bone or nerve.

    pretty sure they just torture you for money. They did this horrific thing once where they used a vibroblade inside and under my gums. The dumb bitch hit a fuckin nerve with it, never felt pain like it. Never had it since, all is fine even eating 90 percent carb diet. Just chew xylitol gum for ten minutes after meals.

    I sometimes bleed a little afzer flossing because I really like to go in there. I use mouthwash to disinfect these wounds. Am I doing any damage to my gums?

    Assuming this isn't just a bait thread (which this thread is screaming), then go to the dentist, you stupid fuck. Otherwise enjoy worsening problems. The other advice I can give you is start chewing on xylitol gum. This shit turned my oral health around. I was always having some issues at the dentist and just couldn't make it better. I flossed, I rinsed, I brushed. Everything. Nothing worked. I start chewing xylitol after meals and reel back on the rinsing completely and flossing only occasionally. My dentist was extremely impressed. Gum inflammation and bleeding went down to basically nothing.
    I don't know if xylitol alone will "cure" your periodontitis and don't recommend it for that. Again, I recommend you go see a dentist. If you need to be called a fucking retard to go do that, then you're a fucking retard. Go see your dentist. This isn't rocket science.
