BTD Forums  /  Nonnie Clubhouse  /  Any Nonnies out there with perfect teeth?
Posted by: Gale D., Friday, September 25, 2009, 10:05pm
Going over the Nonnie conditions list, I fit a lot of them, but I don't fit 'problems with teeth, especially cavities', so I'm wondering if it's possible to be a Nonnie and have near-perfect teeth.

May want to take a look at the thread: "Do any of you nonnies have perfect teeth?"

I answered the other post though I don't know how old it is. I've always had pretty good teeth.  ;D

My teeth are pretty good considering the way I treated them and the amount of sweets I used to eat. only ever cleaned them once a day. But I think we had fluorinated water when I was younger in Holywood. also rightly or wrongly I used to drink more milk than a calf. Also always had private dentist.

I had good private dentists since I am 2.5 year old.. but I supposedly had cavities 1 for every two month.. 2 in 4 month..  3 in 6 month.. I also went to the dentist between seasonal days - I grew up in a winter and summer resort -- so in-between season slow times?  I NOW wonder-- was I just the person on whom that dentist could make money??

my brother never needed the dentist and has no cavities.. even today.. I think he brushes but he smoked and drank coffee all his life.. all discolored.. but perfect..

I did everything even as a small child.. then they had no Novocain, and no water to cool the drill... no fun..   yet I went to the dentist like a lamb to slaughter??????

I think food has little to do.. >:(   BUT BTD IS the solution..

don't know any of our secreater satuses but my dad has terrible teeth. loaads of fillings. he also has curved spine though from poor nutrition as a kid, mom has a few fillings but one of her dentists saved her teeth. aperently on her side of the family is a tendancy for teeth to develope dark spots. they are NOT cavaties they are just dark spots. weird uh? alot of dentists wanted to drill those out and fill them, fortunatly mom already knew about the spots. it saved her teeth. mine? well perfect depends on what are looking for. i have one indentuerd fracture. i may have to fill it some day but right now it is just a hole in the enamel just below the gumline of one tooth. thats it for holes but my teeth are totaly crooked. my wisdom teeth came up halfway under the teeth next to them and as a result i have teeth that were being pushed into and over each other in some places. makes flossing and adventure. some of them are so close together that they will cut floss!

Hi Battle dwarf, and nonnies with good teeth (it's good that you take care of them).

I have a similar problem the wisdoms came through straight but pushed other teeth forward, have one overlap at the front, can't cut anything though wow  :o.  My teeth are closer together than Steven Tyler's (from Aerosmith's) legs and shiny black skintight trousers.   :o  Sorry if that was a little too far a walk up the rock and roll hall of fame.

Some dental floss is like rope and it gets stuck.   :'( Have to use dental tape that's really fine but don't put it sideways or you're in world of pain.  Also when I get a cold the teeth get loose and I feel them pushing forward it hurts.

Always brushed my teeth every day but didn't go to the dentist that much.  Had 7 fillings in one year when I had too many lollies without brushing teeth as a kid.  Have 3 amalgum fillings and at least 2 white filings most recently on the wisdoms at the flat surfaces.  It's not bad since I take care of them since the fillings as a kid.  We know the drill!  Hate the drill.

About your mum with black spots that's different!

This is an old thread come back to life!  I thought Gale D. was back for a minute.  I wonder what happened to her?

have you considered have the wisdoms out? i had to have mine out becuse they were half under the teeth next to them. oh i never relized how tight the others were intill those wisdoms were gone and the others could relax!  i used to on some days be able to feel them shoving next and forward each other. :o

My teeth aren't too bad - have 4 fillings, all of which from primary school days.  Did have all 4 of my wisdom teeth taken out though on dentists recommendation (just to be sure)  ;D.  That was about 10 years ago.

When I finally made myself start going back to the dentist again (about 3 years ago), after being too scared to, I was really pleased when he said that I have perfectly healthy teeth  ;D.  Have been making sure I see the hygienist/dentist on a regular basis now  8).

Symbi, as Battle Dwarf says, have you considered having the wisdoms taken out for good measure?

Thanks for the sugestion Battle Dwarf and Andy.  It only really bothers me when I get sick and that's getting less and less.   ;D Big teethy grin there!
I saw the public dentist and mentioned this and she said the wisdoms came through straight and said there's no reason to take them out.  Seems like they don't take teeth out now as much as they used to.  They did fillings on them on the sides and bottoms though and I think one of those hasn't fully worked, so it could change later.

My Mum never really took care of her teeth and has only 10 or so left. Makes me think she's a nonnie too.

Andy it's great that you're taking care of your mouth so well.  Dentists are alright though they charge like wounded bulls!

I have awful, awful teeth!  Every time I walk through the door of my dentists office I see $$$ signs in his eyes and I can hear CHA CHING!!!  Not once have I been to the dentist and not have a problem with my teeth.

Before my test I could have sworn I was a nonnie.  Everything in the description was me to a T!!!  What is the likely hood of a saliva secretor test being inaccurate?

pretty good.
those cavaties our freind down under mentoned are the resones my dentiset recomended them out. he said sure you live with them the way they are, and the may not bother you but they will rot the teeth next to them. i had good dental insurance at the time so i figured i might as well make some use of it besides the two free cleanings a year.
