good job getting clean op.
stopped burning on the regular when my daughter was born.Originally Posted by Mojodmonky1
damn dude... your story sounds eerily similar to me.
know EXACTLY what youre talkin bout. I hit a meth streak for a few years when I was in college, and it totally jacked my teeth up. Been clean off that for bout 8 years now, but my teeth still suffer. My hygenist got me coming in for cleanings every 4 months instead of every 6 months cause my weak teeth are very prone to plaque buildup and just overall decay and deterioration.
brushing alone, even vigorous brushing twice a day aint gonna cut it. especially if you arent regularly flossing. even if you dont have dental insurance, i would highly highly recommend going in to see a hygenist for regular cleanings. with the drug damage to your teeth its definitely going to be an uphill battle to maintain marginal teeth health, but without professional cleanings its going to be an impossible battle.
on a different note
"no drug use is ever worth anything. ever"
i know you are a reformed/recovering user, I am too somewhat, but I gotta disagree with that.
I still smoke bud (Team Medical too) and I will say that my bud use is definitely worth it. It helps me relax after a long day of work, and that far outweighs the questionable detrimental factor it has on my health. Bud is the only thing I really do nowadays. Like you, quit most of that other stuff cold turkey, no rehab/detox. I promised my wife that I would give up the buds once she got pregnant, and while that will be a joyous time in my life, I aint really wanting to give it up. But gotta do what I gotta do when there are kids/family involved.
Good luck with your tooth man.
i gotta get a couple cavities filled but never been in to do it. do that %*% hurt to get done?
No, they numb the area
First off, step it up to three times a day or after ever major meal.i brush twice a day religiously but don't floss.
Second, start flossing. Brushing is only half the battle and flossing is more important when it comes to gum disease and TOOTH LOSS. You're a grown man and it's time to start taking your health seriously.
