There is so much wrong w this. I can't even touch it. ...but I will a little bit. I've been in the business for a decade & I've never heard of any dental ins that covers 100% of a $2500 restorative dental treatment plan, but expects you to pay OOP for a prophylaxis cleaning. I'm not a dr, and I'm not claiming to know anything about gastroparesis, but I'll go out on a limb here and say that it doesn't cause sensitivity or decal. But....excessive vomiting sure will... once the acids erode away the tooth enamel. Also, not going to the dentist for 9 years. ..."we've never seen such a defined abscess before on an X-ray..." said no dental professional, ever.


WhoLies2Yu

Of course it’s the absolute *WORSE* dental infection the dentist has eVeR seen… Only a munchie would brag about having neglected their dental hygiene to this extreme.


EmpJustinian

Good God who WANTS to boast about bad dental hygiene. That's foul.


EndlesslyMeh

9 years? Gurl gross.


Maleficent_One_7018

She literally neglected herself and is trying to flex how bad her infection is 💀 like girl its not a flex its GROSS


gmilfmoneymilk

Lol VOMITING causes severe sensitivity and decalcification, not gastroparesis.


sunrisegular

Is 11/12 years even that crazy for losing a crown? I was recently looking up different crown options, and was pretty surprised to consistently find dentist websites saying that 10 years is pretty normal. I also consistently read that the crown should be cemented back on ASAP with OTC dental cement and an appointment with a dentist should be made if it falls off. I'm no professional, but I can kinda infer that damage could happen if someone did not do that.


Screamcheese99

I am a professional. 11/12 yrs, depending on what the crown is made of, certainly isn't bad. If it comes off, it comes off for a reason- either there's decay present around it, was done incorrectly, etc, so seeing a dentist is pertinent


Jahknowsehmiaeediat

No, it is not. Depending in the material used, but the material gets worn and you will have to redo it. Sound very normal to me


comefromawayfan2022

Also Dom in this same post claiming she's always been fickler with her teeth and doesn't know how this happened. Am I crazy or does being fickler about your teeth also mean not ignoring dental cleanings for nine years (especially if you claim to have such excellent dental coverage)?


finnsmhh

Why is it always 'they've never seen one so bad' with them


sunshineshade-roses

Shouldn’t a tooth infection with abscess be super painful? A friend told me they would rather go through childbirth again than have toothache the way she had with a dental abscess! Dom makes out she went for a check up since it had been so long and not because she’s in pain or has a huge face or anything?


Ok_Attorney_1967

Incredibly. Indescribable pain. The kind of pain that makes you writhe, sob, and moan uncontrollably, the kind of pain that makes it hard to breathe or think, that has you smashing your face into the mattress and wishing for death. Fortunately, the pain completely disappears once the tooth comes out. Unless you get dry socket, which is almost equally horrendous but slightly less


not_blowfly_girl

I’ve had it without pain. But the tooth was already dead so no nerve there. It can vary. Edit: but mine wasn’t sooper dooper severe like hers so who knows

swabcap

You need a root canal and have “infection/abscess” so badly it’s hit bone and you haven’t gone to the dentist in 9 years?! BULLSHIT. It’s impossible that she lived with an infection like that and didn’t complain about the pain and hasn’t gone off about high fevers. Bullshit.


depressoavocado

Dental student here: excessive vomiting causes lots of dental problems - should she have been more often? Yes but these problems would probably be real. Dk how she could have had an “infection” for such an extended period tho


mirandasoveralls

Imagine how bad her breath must be! This isn’t something to be proud of!


Bubbly-Wishbone-568

Not to defend. But even with regular appointments every six months. If you have bad GP it will destroy your teeth. Even if you don’t vomit, if you create excess bile, it can wreck havoc on your teeth.


luzdelmundo

CharlotteOnTheRun

So uh you need an apicoectomy. How common. Stop trying to make common things sound so wild.


That-Alternative-946

I like the video she posted, sped up, of her doing Mya’s nails. “Don’t mind my mouth, it’s from the DENTIST.” I don’t know, that grind sure looks a lot like meth mouth to me


AITHASNTEEN

Of course she has dental disease. Her diet is atrocious. Dom hadn't been to the dentist for 9 years. Did she just get insurance this week? She lives 20 minutes from the University of Alabama's Dental School which takes volunteers for supervised dental care, so there were affordable options available to her. And she went through a period of bragging about how much money she had. Poor diet, no dental care, and I would bet money that she doesn't brush and floss properly. But it's totally the gastroparesis. A lot of conditions and treatments are brutal on the teeth. There are prescription toothpastes, mouthwashes, and oral rinses to help mitigate damage. A lot of doctors and dentists will recommend increasing your dental cleaning frequency from 6 months to 4 months. Dom did none of this. And she's here to build awareness?


Itsbunnybetch

“They said they've never seen one so defined on X-ray.” It’s ALWAYS “they’ve never see one this big/this was the bestestest one they ever saw!” Imagine being proud that your doctor told you that your disgusting abscessed tooth hole was the worst they’d ever seen?


EZasSundayMorning

And she thinks we are stupid enough to think it's her "disease" and not the fact she's not been to the dentist in almost a decade.


sundance510

That's a lot of words about $44 no one cares about.


smallersoul

Why do we hear *so many* of these girls saying “the DR/Practitioner said they’re never seen an XYZ sooooo bad as mine”. I’ve seen people who have had such intensely abnormal issues that they’ve been published in studies or in literature like the Lancet, and *still* no dr has said this to them. It’s incredibly poor practice and risks drastically altering the mental state of the patient. Doctors are specifically trained not to compare patients in terms of detriment for that reason.


PianoAndFish

If you have a particularly bad case, e.g. a complex fracture, doctors and nurses might actually say things like "Impressive!" or "That was a good one!"


[deleted]

[удалено]


smurfasaur

don’t most of these people take opiate pain killers too? I’m not a doctor or dentist but I’ve always heard one of the big reasons opiate addicts have dental issues is because of the chronic dry mouth it causes. That plus vomiting from GP sounds like a disaster for your teeth especially if you neglected to see a dentist for years at a time.


ZeroHrsprs

This, though with stimulant use, there's the added "bonus" of lack of appetite, which equals lack of proper nutrients going into the body, so double-whammy on that one. People assume it's the drugs themselves, but that's not *entirely* true. Lots of shitty issues with illicit drug use is what it comes down to, and not all are direct c&e.


SugarDraagon

Does she take legal stimulants or the other kind lol

Now there's a question for the ages 😅 though, given that it's Dom, I'm sure we would've heard aaalllllllllllllll about anything prescribed

AITHASNTEEN

I think it was a used car. And she needed to wait at a gas station for her husband to bring her money to fill her tank. Just like Vanderbilts and the du Ponts.


SugarDraagon

Lmao had to wait for the trust to release $22.50


EZasSundayMorning

OMG.


cheesegrater447

so my career is in the dental field. i’m also a piercer apprentice. gastroparesis and vomiting will cause decay from the acidity, yes….if you don’t brush your teeth after vomiting. it’s like sugar. just eating sugar won’t cause decay just because the sugar touched your teeth, it eats away it left repeatedly for extended amounts of time. i don’t understand why her root canal would need to be “redone” unless again, she didn’t take care of her teeth and the crown had a fracture which allowed bacteria in. normally we don’t just redo them. your tooth is crowned and filled entirely with a rubbery substance called gutta percha. it never has to be replace typically.


marbleheader88

Clearly, she didn’t take care of her teeth. Most insurance (like mine) cover cleaning twice a year or every 6 months. It covers x-rays once a year. I once went 9 months without a cleaning during Covid, and I felt terrible about it! I can’t even imagine going 9 years!!


CharlotteOnTheRun

Root canals can fail and can lead to needing an apico


cheesegrater447

yeah i mentioned that. i don’t understand how she’s so shocked about what she needs done yet didn’t see a dentist for 9 years.


doornroosje

I had always heard to not brush directly after vomiting? So that was wrong?


marthasprodigy

If you work in the dental field then you should know that it is advised to never brush directly after vomiting. Swish with some water or mouthwash, but no friction for 30 minutes. Brushing right after will cause more damage than not at all because of the fresh acid on the teeth.


[deleted]

[удалено]


marthasprodigy

Damn homie, it’s not that deep. That’s what was recommended to me. Your wording of “if you don’t brush your teeth after vomiting” can be confusing for those that don’t already know you should wait.


cheesegrater447

the “if you work in the dental field you should know…” rubbed me the wrong way. i included the candy comparison for that reason. they’re both harmful if you don’t brush at ALL and let them just stay in/on your teeth, and brushing a short while afterwards is a smart idea.


Remarkable_Bell_1888

Of course anywhere they go the professionals must emphasise that they have "never seen anything like this before"


Character_Recover809

Major dental issues are not uncommon with EDS. The teeth can fall apart no matter how much time and effort you put into them. The fact that she was able to get away without a dentist for NINE FREAKING YEARS shows normal person tooth issues. EDS with dental involvement usually won't last more than a couple of years, at best, without a dentist once the person is an adult.


12fishinatrenchcoat

Do you HAVE to grab a photo of it? i mean, you you REALLY have to???


depressoavocado

I mean the dental student in me is now curious looking forward to dissecting this


junipertheone

It’s funny because her GP only spawned 2 months ago after an endoscopy with no prior complaints, she really gave herself away with the nine years no dentist appointments


slorm333

What kind of insurance does she have that is paying for EVERYTHING? 😭


AITHASNTEEN

Dom's not smart. And she hasn't used dental insurance at any point in her adult life. She probably has a policy that covers 100% of the first $5,000 or so and thinks she can get extensive dental work done for free.


Liljeepwitch

Even more so, usually it works as a deductible, where you have to pay a certain amount ($1,000/$5,000/etc.) before you are covered 100%. No insurance is 100% free unless it’s state aid, which sometimes still requires some co-pays.


AITHASNTEEN

Deductibles aren't as common in dental insurance. Buying dental insurance is basically prepayment for your annual care and a discount on major work.


Liljeepwitch

Ah, thanks for clarifying, I have only ever used my work insurance for regular cleanings.


[deleted]

[удалено]


cheesegrater447

in the state i work, normally dental insurance won’t cover anything that can be prevented (such as a root canal.) because if she would’ve taken preventative measures like seeing a dentist as needed she wouldn’t have the decay which lead to needing RCT & a crown. medicaid will hardly-if ever-cover dental anything.. there can be special cases where a doctor says it’s medically necessary and the secondary portion would cover some.


Liljeepwitch

Not sure about other states but medicaid in Maine (MaineCare) just started covering dental for adults in July. Practically full coverage.


cheesegrater447

the claims we submitted for patients trx were denied because it was a preventable diagnosis. hopefully this change makes its way to where we are because that would save us a lot of arguments with patients and headache. 🫠


AniRayne

Medicaid.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Character_Recover809

Medicaid usually won't cover regular dental work, but an abscess is considered a medical issue, not a dental. So Medicaid will cover whatever work is needed to fix the abscess. It's not going to cover cleanings or regular fillings if they're not related to something like an abscess. I think Medicaid may have actually covered this cleaning since the cleaning is necessary to start treatment of the abscess. ETA: This is in reference to the states where dental is not already covered by Medicaid.


nadabethyname

i think it depends on what state as well as the plan. there's direct Medicaid and then Medicaid where you pick a carrier. it's confusing and it's different for people based on factors of what qualifies them. i was in your boat for the longest time and never understood as in the end lack of dental care will cause more systemic issues so Medicaid covering routine care can negate other more serious systemic care... if you can, try to talk to someone, i know it's a pain to get a hold of anyone at SS offices and people tend to be crappy to you but it's worth seeing. i started paying out of pocket doing a little at a time to save what i could and started going to a dental school. one day my procedure was suddenly covered. so worth checking out. good luck! i know Medicaid has a ton of stigma and some people aren't so nice about it and people on it but not everyone is a grifter, ya know?


Lolythia77

It also depends on age, whether or not you have children etc. If you are under a certain age, you can qualify for Medicaid with dental and optical. If you have children under a certain age, you can qualify for dental with optical. Also depending in what state you live in depends on whether or not you get dental or optical.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Lolythia77

Medicaid is the same around here for people my age. Emergency extractions and dentures only. Anything else and you're just shit outta luck. Have you tried dental schools for your mother? I'm not sure if they are free or not but if they are not, I know they're definitely wayyy cheaper.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Lolythia77

I'm also on SSDI. That's how I found out about the schools. I had to find another option other than paying OOP since I cannot afford it. Once I turn 65, it's a whole other ball game and I'll get dental and optical but that's another 20 years down the road and I don't think they would've held on until then. I wish the two of you the best of luck. Oh! Also, sometimes dental groups will travel around and do free dental work for those who don't have insurance. You'll have to keep and eye for it for it does happen. Try looking for these groups on Google. I hope this offers a bit of help.

Accessible_abelism

Soooper speshul defined xray 🙄


Turbulent-Memory-420

She’s so speshul even her mouth rot “soooo defined.”


[deleted]

Lol this is just the normal restoration cycle of teeth. It’s pretty much a given that any work you have done will eventually lead to revision which will eventually lead to RCT which will eventually lead to repeat RCT or extraction. And I sincerely doubt they told her that her abscess was the most defined they’ve ever seen on X-ray when dentists treat abscesses that require apicetomy pretty routinely. If they’re able to treat hers simply by redoing the root canal, it isn’t shockingly bad.


sunrisegular

With all due respect, as accurate as this may be, I am not trying to hear all that.


AITHASNTEEN

The worst dental abscesses can cause sepsis. Dom was sent home, son she doesn't have sepsis. The fact that she was sent home makes it unlikely that the abscess spread to her brain, or neck, or eye. She has an ordinary dental abscess and needs to get a grip.


JMloch2020

Aggressive_Ant4665

She starts with the truth…last apt was 9 years ago. That’s why!!


Fast_Job_5949

10% of root canals fail for no reason. Also, all root canal re-treats take at least 2 visits. She ain’t speshul. She is, however, incorrigible.


instaasspats

I'm pretty sure she posted something about eating a chocolate chip cookie before a dentist appointment once. It was a few years ago though.


taphappy52

if it was an infection that bad she would have it dealt with immediately, not in two weeks


SEND_TOAST

Usually they can’t do work until they clear out the infection, so you’ll go on antibiotics for 10-14 days then come back and they’ll do the work.


[deleted]

Abscesses are no fucking joke. Big “tough guys” end up in the ER because the pain is so bad. This sounds awfully casual


marthasprodigy

She’s so whiny, how haven’t we heard about it? Lol


lunitapapita

Dom arguing with an entry level employee over $44 checks out.


birdgirl1124

Maybe her teeth are a mess because she ignored them for NINE years, it’s not some big medical mystery.


3yellowcats

Dental infections are PAINFUL, and the side of her face would be swollen. That would be worth munchie-points, so why no pic?


Minnie_Pearl_87

Also they don’t generally make you wait two weeks to take care of a “bad infection.” 🙄


coffeebuzzbuzzz

I would think if you are vomiting all the time you'd go to the dentist more often than not.


noneofthismatters666

So has she given herself an eating disorder to sell the gastroperisis?


SimpleVegetable5715

Root canals only last about 10 years on average anyway, and that's with regular dental care. She hasn't been in 9 years, no wonder she has an abscess. But yeah, it's the gAstRoParEsIS 🙄


busted3000

Ah yes of course in this dentist’s entire career Dom’s abscess is the most defined they’ve ever seen 🙄


etherealscrewing

Or is Dom herself the abcess?


Hopingfortheday

I'm just gonna say some people can't afford the dentist. So please don't judge people who havent been to the dentist in many years. Throwing up a lot can damage your teeth, due to the acid. So gastroparesis can cause teeth issues. But we all know Dom doesn't have gastroparesis, probably just from not brushing her teeth.


whitelilyofthevalley

The fastest way to dentures is vomiting issues, even if they are self induced. You can go from perfect teeth to dentures in a couple short years.


RedQueen29

It’s not a money problem. She would have no problem grifting for cash to go to the dentist if she really wanted to (but it also seems like it’s covered? So she has no excuse and shouldn’t complain, if she can go to the dentist for free!! She’s privileged! )


SimpleVegetable5715

Yeah but Dom also mentioned she has full coverage dental insurance. There are dental schools who will do services for a discount or sliding scale fee.


busted3000

Yeah some people can’t afford to go to the dentist, but they typically acknowledge that’s why they need dental work after a decade rather than blaming it on a medical condition they don’t have. Also, Dom isn’t one of those people, she’s just chosen not to go to the dentist.

If her infection/one of a kind abscess was so bad, it wouldn’t be 2 weeks before she went back 🙄 A lot of people with GP have a prescription for tooth paste that protects the teeth from all the acid while throwing up. A lot of people with GP also go to the dentist at least yearly 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

I’m just thinking about the pain a tooth infection sounds so painful. Why why why would you not go to the dentist for 10 years??? Besides not having healthcare, mental illness, poverty, other valid issues etc. Because it sounds to me like she has had access to dental care. Also why do they always have to be “the very worst they’ve ever seen.” And does anyone know if gastroparesis (that she never got officially diagnosed with lol) could even cause this bad of issues with her teeth? Eta we all know what condition could potentially cause bad teeth issues that these munchies often struggle with


Imahsfan

Constant vomiting messes up your teeth so hypothetically GP would


RuffleFart

But with a tooth infection you get amoxicillin and…hydrocodone 🥴 Can’t blog but the answer is yes GP can f your teeth up from all the nasty GI liquids coming up. To the extent she claims, I don’t know because who knows if any munchie actually tells the truth. Also have to factor in basic dental hygiene that is needed even without GP.


Madame_Kitsune98

In pharmacy, we would see people with meth mouth come in from the community dental clinic allllll the time with three prescriptions: Peridex mouthwash, amoxicillin/penicillin/whatever antibiotic they weren’t allergic to, and Norco. We’d fill all three, they would be free or extremely low cost because Medicaid, and then we’d get, “Naw, I only want the Norco.” Nope. Pharmacy and dental clinic policy was that you either pick up all three or get none. You’re not scoring free Norco. People like Dom throw the biggest fits about it, too. Policy hasn’t changed, and people still lose their minds.


b1tching

Yeah that makes sense that it would mess your teeth up. Then it’s a good thing Dom doesn’t actually have gastroparesis cuz her teeth could potentially be worse if she did.


[deleted]

No fucking shit not getting a cleaning for 9 years will cause dental problems! She’s on Medicaid for her munching, I see.

Madame_Kitsune98

That and medication-induced dry mouth, and you know…meth mouth.


EZasSundayMorning

100%


Connect_Artichoke_42

I thought most people knew that vomiting destroys your teeth. It's not as common knowledge that you have to wait to brush your teeth and to swish milk or something like that in your mouth too neutralize the acid.


fuckintictacs

Why do you have to wait a period of time before brushing your teeth?


Connect_Artichoke_42

Because brushing them right after vomiting just moves the acid around and cause more teeth problems


darkthronedoll

“They said they’ve never seen one so defined on an X-ray.” Of course 🙄


bobtheorangecat

Lots of medical conditions cause dental issues. So does not going to the dentist for longer than her kids have been alive. She's not special.


itmakessenseincontex

Also, going through pregnancy! I forgot this one has kids, and that can fuck your teeth because the hormones that loosen you up to give birth also loosen your gums up!


RuffleFart

Medications also. And everyone knows how many absurd amount of meds these people are on, whether or not they even need them. I’m not surprised more GP munchies don’t mention taking Reglan/metoclopramide which can f up your jaw and other dental stuff and can cause TD. But that would be a side effect that you can’t hide, so maybe that’s why none seem to claim to be taking it.


Madame_Kitsune98

There’s a metric shit ton of anticholinergic drugs, and they can lead to tooth issues because of dry mouth. The good news? Everyone and their dog has a fry mouth mouthwash out now, and it actually works. Better news? You quit taking anticholinergic drugs you don’t need? Problem goes away.
