I guess you can say I wasn’t gifted with gorgeous teeth, yeah I know they are not nasty looking but they are falling apart without a doubt.
I am 63 years old and I don’t have a lot of teeth anymore, all my front teeth are beginning to waver to and fro and my top eye teeth are all worn down to the bone.

I no longer have back teeth on one side but I do have one back tooth that stands up like the Empire State building because the gum has worn down to the bone thus exposing the tooth very badly.

I am afraid to chew an apple or corn on the cob in fear of losing my front teeth but then again I guess I could truly sing that Christmas song about “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth” the only problem with that is I have about 5 loose ones.

Well, I reckon with today’s prices it would cost me a fortune the dental and medical keeps rising but being retired my income stays the same. I truly do not see how people can afford the astronomical prices American dentists charge it is no wonder why people are not going for dentist check-ups.
