Exessive rotting.

Hello, I thought about asking an expert in the field regarding my teeth problem.

Ever since I got my permenent teeth I had problems with them. Little holes appearing, yellow spots and such.

Now I am 20 years old and have been smoking for 12 years which is horrible and I wouldn't be surprised if this was at fault for what is happening.

Anyway, right now I haven't been to a dentist for 6 months, brushed my teeth EACH DAY with no exception. However I can see holes which are black already on my teeth, i simply can't understand why my teeth keep rotting like this for no reason, I go to a dentist every 6 months and each time I have 12 plus holes which need to be probed or how you call it.

Is this a natural disease or it is me doing something bad? I abused alcohol when I was 18 so I wouldn't be surprised if teeth defense is destroyed.

thank you for your time, Algis.

That's hard to say.  Your current habits such as smoking and previous history of alcohol indicate that there may have been a time when you cause some injury to your teeth.  This could have potentially started the damage and now its continuing to worsen (as teeth don't heal well since its a hard tissue outside of the body).  You should definitely consider a lifestyle change with the smoking.  Have you asked your dentist before?  Any other habits such as eating lots of candy, sucking on lemons, etc?

Well I don't really like sweets , had enough of them. I used to abuse lemon acid ( I liked to mix it with water and drink ), I eat a lot of veggies and try to not eat hard stuff. I asked my dentist, but she either didn't listen or didn't care and told me just to brush my teeth, which I am doing. If this matters, I've been hit to my face a lot ( which caused some internal mouth bleeding and tooth pain ), but I feel fine now.
