Michigan woman says her soda addiction cost her all her top teeth

Michigan woman says her soda addiction cost her all her top teeth

A Michigan woman says she lost all of her top teeth — thanks in part to her decade-long soda addiction.

Victoria Irene Nowakowski has warned others to maintain their dental health after her own chompers decayed to yellow nubs following years of drinking soda every day and smoking cigarettes.

“Dental hygiene is really and extremely important,” Nowakowski said in a series of TikTok videos.

Nowakowski said she was told in 2017 that she would need her entire top row of teeth removed and replaced with dentures.

“It was the lack of dental hygiene, not going to the dentist and the soda drinking,” Nowakowski said.

She said that at that point she had been drinking soda on a daily basis for a decade.

“I’ve been drinking Coca-Cola, dark soda, for like the last 10 years, every single day all day. I started smoking cigarettes four to five years ago,” she said.

She also admitted that she “didn’t take care of her teeth” during her high school years.

“I did not brush them or floss them, and obviously had a big part on them decaying,” she said

Nowakowski said that her teeth had appeared normal for many years, but in reality “in the inside they weren’t fine.”

“With all that bacteria and everything from the dark soda, I made a perfect home for that bacteria in my teeth,” she said.

But even when it became apparent that her teeth were rotting, Nowakowski said that it took her years to go through with the process of getting dentures.

“I was also absolutely terrified of the dentist and the thought of getting my teeth out, and going through this process was absolutely terrifying, and it took me a really long time to get the courage up to do it,” she said.
