Hi--when did you last see a dentist? Do you have any other medical conditions?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I don't have a dentist and I can't afford to go to one right now, I don't have any medical conditions.

OK Hannah. This is called peridontal disease and if you can't see a dentist for it, the next best thing is to brush with tea tree oil applied to your teeth brush and to take vitamin B complex along with zinc and magnesium supplements.
