This very attractive young lady walked around like this for 3 years until she got this fixed. It was very easy to fix, she was terrified to have it done. I would have been terrified to smile if my teeth were like this!

Dontcha wish your teeth were clean like mine

OK, this patient was told by her previous dentist not to come back until she stopped smoking. Which she never did, so she never went back. And that was 3 years ago. Here is the photo of her lower front teeth, and then the associated x-ray. Notice that the only thing really holding in her lower front teeth is the calculus itself? NOW GO FLOSS!!
