Re: havent brushed teeth in 8 years
Well, brushing your teeth is something that you shouldn't take lightly. Decaying food that might get caught between your teeth may rot your teeth and cause you serious health problems that you don't want to mess with.
Good thing you have decided to change things!
My only suggestion would to continue brushing your teeth for at least 2 times daily- after everytime you eat is better, wayyy better.
Flossing is a MUST!
That black stuff between your teeth is probably cavities, in fact, I'm sure of it. Sorry. You'll have to go get those filled so all of the teeth with cavities don't rot away. They won't ever go away until you have them filled.
Use mouth wash and toothpaste that have extra whitening agents in them, and you can get some pretty high-strength stuff from a dentist.
You can go to a dentist and get some good whitening treatments as well. You can do some at-home whitening treatments too.
All in all, your teeth may be perminantly stained from the years of neglect. You can make them slightly better, but they may never be white again.
