Have you ever wondered what not brushing your teeth for 20 years would do to your mouth? Well ponder no longer because an episode of Embarrassing Bodies shows the horrible aftermath of not brushing your teeth.
Jay’s teeth are in bad shape after years of neglect and lack of brushing and flossing. A CT scan reveals that he will have to lose some teeth to make way for implants. Jay visits an implantologist to begin his treatment. Each new implant will act as a replacement root of a tooth. A titanium base is screwed into the jawbone, so that false teeth can be later fixed on top with dental cement. Jay then visits Dr. James after changing his habits and undergoing dental surgery, for the final part of his treatment. His new crown and bridgework are ready to be screwed into place .
Luckily, he was able to turn his dental hygiene routine around and after two gruelling procedures, both his mouth (and his confidence) were completely unrecognisable.
A beaming Jay looked like a brand new person as he made the following remarks on his dental journey:
“I’m a much happier person and I’m definitely going forward to achieve my dreams really.”
