Posted by World News Tonight on Sunday, November 19, 2019 14:18:20When it comes to tooth decay, there is no denying that the health risks are real.
But with so many people still suffering from tooth decay that affects their quality of life, a tooth fairy is a solution that can make the world a better place.
Towards the end of 2017, the dental professional who has been battling tooth decay for over 30 years, Peter Fong, decided to take on the tooth erosion challenge.
“I was a tooth tooth fairy for quite some time,” he said.
“I’ve never really liked to be seen to be tooth fairy.”
It was very stressful, because my teeth were already falling out, and I had never seen a dentist before.
“Peter has worked with over 20 dentists, and while some of them have given him good advice, he still gets frustrated when they fail to give him the help he needs.”
Some dentists will not come to see me for a dental appointment because they have a family history of tooth decay,” he says.”
My biggest complaint is when I go for an appointment and they don’t show up, they’re not even prepared.
“The dentists don’t even show up to the appointments with their families, they come in and say, ‘I can’t give you an appointment because I’m on holiday’.”
Peter, who is now 78, has been using his dental knowledge to provide dental advice and to help other people who are struggling with tooth decay.
His first tooth fairy, a dentist who works in Singapore, was a success, but he soon found out that the same dentist had been performing tooth fairy therapy at his home in the Philippines for over 20 years.
“They’ve taught me how to practise the art of tooth fairy and what not, and that’s when I started using it,” he told World News Today.
Peter says the tooth Fairy Therapy Program is one of the best practices he’s ever had.
“If it’s not for a dentist, I wouldn’t have been able to get into this program,” he added.
“A dentist will tell you, ‘Look, if you go to see a dentist for your dental condition, you better come back tomorrow’.”
But a tooth Fairy will show you how to do it yourself.
“Peter, whose family lives in Sydney, Australia, is now the CEO of the TTO and has been working with dentists around the world.”
People have to realise that they can be in a dental program and not be seen as a tooth monster, or a tooth worm, or tooth worm monster,” he explained.”
This is the best thing I’ve ever done in my life.”‘
I want to be a tooth god’The best thing about the TTP program is that it has not only saved Peter’s life, but also made him a better person.”
Being a dentist has been very difficult for me,” he recalls.”
When I was in my teens, I had two teeth, and they fell out a few months later.
So I couldn’t get a job, so I had to live off the support of my parents.
“But my mom always took me out and taught me to brush my teeth.
I’ve been brushing my teeth ever since.”
He says he feels more in control of his teeth, which means he is now able to live life with dignity.
“To be a dentist is the hardest thing I ever did in my entire life,” he explains.
“You have to be constantly looking after your teeth.”
Your teeth will be in the mouth for 30 years.
You have to have teeth that are never broken, and never worn down.
“And then when your teeth are worn down, it’s very easy for it to become a problem.”
Peter says that he was able to overcome his tooth problems by using the TTD program, and has found that it helped him to achieve his personal goals.
“At the end, it really helps to be self-reliant and have a plan to help you achieve your goals,” he concluded.
“Having a plan is a great way to motivate yourself.”
