I know that it is kind of teetering on the edge of health and wellness, but, dental hygeine

I have horrible dental hygeine. Anyway to fix this besides going to the dentist and racking up a huge bill? And any alternatives to brushing your teeth? Seriously, I don't have dental insurance so it needs to be cheap.

Yeah. It's great having dental insurance. I'm grateful that I have it.

If you're a minor, you might be covered by your parents (or parent's) plan... but you would've probably mentioned that.

1)There are no alternatives, that I know of, to brushing your teeth and flossing. And it's not that big of a deal... just do it.

2)Get a full-time job and get some dental insurance.

Dental hygiene is a huge part of health and wellness, not teetering on the edge. Depending on how bad your teeth are, there are several things you could do. First off would be to, as firebat said, begin flossing and brushing if you don't already. However, there are some who, even if they do that, have some major dental problems. It can be genetic, caused by medication, or even diet.

As you're establishing the pattern of brushing and flossing, there are clinics around the country that offer extremely cheap major dental work. One I know of is in Sexton, South Carolina. It's something like $15 for a filling, $50 to have a tooth pulled, $30 for a crown, and other insanely cheap prices. That might be an idea to get yourself back on the right path, but, if you do brush regularly, then see a dental specialist (this will cost money) and find out what other steps you can take to protect your teeth and the work you just had done.

Yes, I am a minor (OOPS, OKAY, OOPS), and I am pretty sure that my parents don't have dental. I do brush and floss. I saw this one kind of mouth wash on T.V. and it said ravity restoring formula. I dont have cavaties, but I know that they will be here soon.

mouthwash, toothpaste, toothbrush, floss.

the dentist will tell you the same, Floss the teeth you wish to keep, between your teeth is where calculus(tartar, bacteria) forms and then once it forms it begins to shove your gumline down attempt to expose the roots of your teeth.

All I will say is brush your teeth after every meal, cause nobody likes stank ass breath.

also need to go to a dental hygienist and have your teeth professionally cleaned every so often.

If you don't start doing something about it now it'll only get a lot worse.
