Re: i think my teeth are making my body sick

I think you are safe on the bowel movement part. Seems like you are eating more, hence the extra bowel movements. People have different movements believe it or not. I go frequently a day. My surprise when my friend told me he goes about 3 times a week!!!! LOL. About the residue... just wipe wipe wipe. Maybe invest in some 'Wet Ones' that are moist napkins.

Now your teeth. Are you in the US? There is a payment option called carecredit. It is like credit card for you anything medical. You should invest in one. You are 22. It's time you take responsibility for the things that affect you. A lot of dental office also have payment plans. I suggest you go in for a consultation and work out a payment schedule to get this worked out. Bad dental hygiene can effect different parts of your health so I would not lose sleep over this! Get the consultation so you know EXACLTY what you are dealing with. You may not need to get all your teeth pulled and their may be other alternative.

Good luck.

Re: i think my teeth are making my body sick

Sounds like you may have IBS or something similar going on with your intestines and bowels - to be bloated yet claim to not be eating more than normal yet there is weight gain suggests a problem with the digestion and then elimination of waste. It could also be endocrin related. Its not uncommon for a undiagnosed or untreated medical condition to affect the appearance and vitality of teeth and increase their susceptablity to become weakend and deteriorate. Medications taken over prolonged periods can also detrimentally affect teeth. It may be time for you to see your medical dr for a full medical work-up and then address the teeth issue.
