Where do I start? I used to have a perfect smile and in the past couple years I have noticed its changed and looks completely different. My gums are receding and my teeth shift and move. My entire bottom left side seems to lean more and more inward towards my tongue, and I even feel like I lost some jaw bone and its smaller? When I bite down my front teeth don't touch and in general its all messed up and out of line. I've never been good when it comes to flossing, I've also had an eating disorder and used drugs in the past. I probably haven't been to the dentist in like 8 years b/c I've always had a fear of them, however now I'm just SO embarrassed I've let my teeth get this bad I don't want to go. Well, I did go recently and clearly need a lot of work done...I guess what I really want to know is after all the problem teeth and areas are fixed will my gums stop receding and teeth stop moving? And am I going to need braces again to fix my bite and smile? And even more recent now, like in the past week or two I’ve started noticing small spaces appearing in between my top front four teeth at the gum line. What is causing this and what can be done to fix it?
