Some people say that they have a fear of the dentist, yet still manage to overcome it and go in for recommended cleanings and take daily care of their oral health. However, that notion escaped a British man named Jay whose parents never encouraged him to take care of his teeth.
Due to lack of encouragement and extreme dental anxiety, Jay never brushed his teeth for 20 years. As a result, Jay suffered from extreme tartar and plaque build up, as well as severe tooth decay. Unfortunately, as a result of his completely absent oral hygiene practice, Jay felt ashamed of his appearance, had low self-confidence, and was putting off his dreams of becoming a physiotherapist due to his decaying teeth. With the increasing issues, Jay finally decided to take his health seriously.
After an initial cleaning to remove the decades of tartar and plaque build up, Jay’s only real hope of a healthy mouth and smile were dental implants. After Jay promised to adhere to a new oral health regimen, his dentist and oral surgeon removed eleven teeth and Jay received dental implants. Now, this 20 year old has a wonderful smile, improved oral health, and beaming self-confidence which is propelling him to pursue his dreams. All of this thanks to him finally taking care of his dental hygiene.
