Q.

Teeth decay

Hi Dr

Im a 32 year old woman, while pregnant 4 years ago...i had the most unbearable morning sickness ever. I had to chew anything to supress the nausea from crackers, breads, fruits and lots of sweets especially when in public places. That too much sweets have ruined my teeth in all possible way you can imagine. I suffer from sensitivity and all sorts of pain. If i had my way i' d have all my teeth removed and start afresh with false teeth.
Please advise

I would not advise removing all the teeth without a proper discussion with your dentist.
First go for a full examination , including x-rays and discuss all your options with him.
Extractions are a last resort
