The woman’s mother found out she had throat cancer because of a trip to the dentist. The woman was, therefore, afraid to go to the dentist lest she get similar news. Her avoidance of proper dental care led to teeth falling out which she then affixed to her mouth with superglue.

She lost almost all the bone in her upper jaw because of it. They believe that smoking is the root cause of her teeth falling out. This is the link to the story and it contains a picture of the woman displaying her haphazard teeth, so you’ve been warned.
