Can’t Talk. Tooth Hurts. 30

Can’t Talk. Tooth Hurts.

So, I have bad teeth. I’m not sure which parent is to blame for my bad dental inheritance, or maybe it’s the combination of the two that lead to the disaster in my mouth. Either way, I was born missing several permanent teeth causing my mouth to shift all other teeth when baby teeth were lost. Except, of course, for the one miracle baby tooth with the root from hell which I still have.

And since, as adults we tend to be set in our ways, you both find ways to just give up and maybe accept the difference. Maybe find a compromise. In the end, however, the views are not changed.
