Brushing one’s teeth is a necessity, but there are times when some folks are just too lazy to do it. This, however, just might change your mind.As a child we’re always told the importance of brushing our teeth and – despite pushing away our parents’ hands as they came at us with toothbrushes – most people are glad they listened to their elders.

Jay’s teeth are in bad shape after years of neglect and lack of brushing and flossing. A CT scan reveals that he will have to lose some teeth to make way for implants. Jay visits an implantologist to begin his treatment. Each new implant will act as a replacement root of a tooth.
“Over the years, I’ve eaten the wrong foods, I’ve drank lots of fizzy drinks and I haven’t really taken care of them,” he confessed. “I haven’t really brushed them or flossed or anything like that.”
A titanium base is screwed into the jawbone, so that false teeth can be later fixed on top with dental cement. Jay then visits Dr. James after changing his habits and undergoing dental surgery, for the final part of his treatment. His new crown and bridgework are ready to be screwed into place.
