Unhappy 23 and scared/worried

Hi, i am new to the board and i have a problem. When i was younger i secretly refused to brush my teeth because i hated the friction sound (weird, but this still exists for brushing teeth, sweeping the floor, etc). I am older now and to make a long story short, my front teeth are chipped and to not waste time and count, i am going to say that all my back teeth both top and bottom have chipped, cracked, and been swallowed. I am 23yrs old, have a job of a 23 yr old w/o insurance. I dont have much daily pain unless i am chewing. So my question is whats next? I want to smile again and eat pretzels. What will the dentist do? pull them all and reGod my mouth? help!

The first step is to go to the dentist and have an examination and x-rays done. From there the dentist will review with you what the results are and create a treatment plan and the length of time it will take to complete.

Dentists will try and save your natural teeth for as long as possible.
