How many fillings do you have?
43. two shallow fillings (shallow enough no have needed anaesthetic)
Haven’t been to a dentist since 1990.
I had a treatment done in my early teens where they seal some sort of paste in your molars with UV light,
So did I (I’d forgotten all about that, although I can immediately recall the taste) Do they still do that now? or is it something that doesn’t happen any more because of Health and Safety Gone Mad / The EU / The Cuts / Science?Posted 3 years agothecaptainMember
45, no fillings, no extractions, all my original teeth though 2 wisdom teeth still to appear (so 30 proper unaltered gnashers in use). I struggle with long sentences but did I win, and if so, what was the prize? Actually I’m surprised at the number of no/low fillings reported, I thought it was really rare, but apparently not.
By the time my grandmonther was about 30 she didn’t have a single tooth left (partly through choice I think, full dentures to rule out future problems).Posted 3 years agofootflapsSubscriber

I think it is, my dentist always remarks that I must have really tough teeth to still have them all intact. He says one shows signs of decay that has then resealed and healed, probably from fluoride in the toothpaste etc.Posted 3 years agotorsoinalakeMember
No wisdom teeth, two other teeth missing, all teeth behind the incisors have been filled at least once, one front tooth filled, at least three root canal filled teeth are still in there, one of which is now marginal.
My teeth really depress me. It’s only going to get worse from here on in.
