She’s 29 years old and had all her teeth pulled out. It turns out, this unfortunate situation she was in started when she was a teenager.

Back then, Brittany thought she killed her brother.

He was 18 and suffering from Ewing sarcoma, a type of soft tissue or bone cancer. Brittany wasn’t feeling up for school that day, so she went inside her brother’s room and laid beside him. After 15 minutes, she heard him take a big gasp and then stopped breathing.

All those times, she blamed herself for her brother’s death.

She thought that she had lain down his breathing tube that made him lose oxygen. She went into a dark place because of that. She hung out with the wrong bunch and started doing drugs. Addiction eventually led her teeth to rot.

Drug abuse is known to damage dental health.

Addiction to drugs can lead to having a dry mouth which increases acidity and ruins the enamel of the teeth. It can also cause the loss of blood flow towards one’s gums and roots, leading to nutrition deficiency to the teeth.

In rehab, her family asked her what led her to addiction.

She told them about her guilt over her brother’s death. Her family reminded her that it was not her fault and that it was just his brother’s time to go. This shed some light on her life, and she slowly stopped using drugs.

One day, Brittany decided to pick herself up and help herself get back on her feet.

She can see how rotten her teeth are, and some are starting to fall out. So, she visited her dentist, hoping that she will find herself renewed.

But her hurdles didn’t end here.

The dentist told her that her teeth couldn’t be fixed and must be pulled out. Yes, all of them! Imagine the horror of having all your teeth pulled. She was given dentures to fix her “problem,” but it was too big that she couldn’t use it.

Brittany was back to a dark time in her life.

She cannot eat and lost a lot of weight in a short span. She started drinking Ensures just to gain back her weight but to no avail. Brittany was on the brink of falling apart again.

She told Dr. Kenny that she was excited to meet him because she just wants to eat again.

Such a simple desire, but something that also means a lot to her. Aside from going hungry because she can’t eat solid foods, she wanted to wave the white flag and just get feeding tubes. Plus, she just lost confidence and can’t even get a job.

Thanks to Dr. Kenny, she gets a dental makeover for free.

Dr. Kenny attached a set of dentures to her gums that fit her this time. After a few hours of operation, it was time for a big reveal. She gave him a mirror, and you can see the joy in her reaction.

Look at her! She looks so much better, and with a smile now, too!


To add to this sweet treat, Dr. Kenny and his wife took Brittany out for dinner to see how the new teeth would handle food. You just have to see it for yourselves.
