my dentist told me that i need to get one tooth extracted which my wisdom tooth will replace. then a root canal and a crown and finally treatment for another tooth. how? I'm 16 and i brush my teeth twice a day so how are my teeth so bad? like what should i do to keep them clean? a lot of the reasons i need the treatment is because of tooth decay... i think.

Ask your dentist? Might just be your genetics though

If you brush and keep them clean then try looking at what you drink/eat.

My dentist told me that fruit juice does 7x the damage coke does. Also the way you brush could be the problem, it's not about how hard you press!

Just ask your dentist and explain what you told us

Why is this in the relationships section?

Ask the dentist. You probably don't brush well enough.

Bad teeth could be putting strain on his relationship with his dentist?

But in seriousness, ask your dentist. Do your parents have problems with their teeth too? It runs through my mothers side and using mouthwash (on top of brushing twice a day) makes a considerable difference as apose to just brushing twice a day

Health section still seems more appropriate.

Use an electric toothbrush my teeth feels a lot cleaner when I use mine instead of a normal toothbrush.
Also watch how much sugar you eat as that can be bad for teeth

I had a similar problem when I was 16. It was quite embarrassing I had decay and I didn't know why when I was obsessive with brushing-

I assumed I was more prone to it as my parents had teeth problems
What I did to combat was floss all the time (dont make your gums bleed) and brush 2x a day and also cut down on chocolate and fizzy drinks- perhaps treat yourself once in a while but that stuff really damages your teeth- so try it, if it doesn't work then go back to your dentist they might be able to coat your teeth with something

OP, it may not be because your teeth are bad:

• I have had 5 teeth extractions because mine were all over the place, and I needed them removed for braces
• I've had a filling (because my teeth were all over the place, it caused a few problems)
• That filling leaked because the dentist didn't do it properly, causing me to require a root canal.

However, the dentist said that this is all mostly due to the way I was born since my brushing etc is fine.

I would speak to your dentist and see what they say.

last time i went she said something about having too much sugar so that's probably it. I don't see how though because i generally don't eat that much as it is

Use mouthwash, get an electric toothbrush, and floss you teeth. Also chew dental gum throughout the day.

Also stop drinking pop and try limit the amount of fruit and sweets that you eat.

I feel so guilty reading this whilst eating fizzy haribo.

Some dentists are like that tbh. Maybe look into a different dentist? Do your parents have any problems? It may be genetic.
