Hey, I am 19 and I am never been to a dentist before. But for the past few months, my teeth have been hurting very much. Especially the right side; its almost swollen. I also constantly have to chew gum or at least bite something or they hurt/itch. It's a weird sensation to explain. My friends just think it's my obsession with vampires, but I swear my teeth actually itch and I have to constantly bite or chew stuff. And my gums bleed when I brush my teeth. It depends on the time I take, and how many times I brush my teeth. Because I brush my teeth twice everyday, my gum will bleed at least once. I don't have insurance, and neither does my family, so I cannot afford to go to a dentist. My mom really wants to help me, but I don't want her to worry. How much does it take to actually go to a dentist and get checked out.
