Young woman, 22 shares an “empty smile” after losing all of her teeth.
A young woman has shared how she lost all of her teeth as a result of a drug addiction in a series of TikTok videos.
Faith Hill, a young woman of 22 from Missouri, has been addicted to Methamphetamine, also known as “meth”, for the past 6 years. The aftermath of the drug addiction not only includes the “meth mouth” -causing teeth decay and gum disease- , but also lost in weight and friends.
She is open to her experiences with her drug addiction, especially on a current hot social platform, Tik Tok.
Her TikTok channel, consisting of 700,000 followers, deals with ruthless realities of addiction, such as getting arrested, attempting to commit a suicide, and even losing her close friends to death.
One of her most popular videos showed her “empty smile”, as she had no teeth, which has reached 3.8million likes.
In one of her clips, she has mentioned, “I was on a six-year drug bender on methamphetamines. I was living on the streets, hotels, anywhere I could manage to lay my head at.”
“I obviously didn’t take care of my teeth. Well, I thought I did, but I didn’t. And it caused a lot of breakage, a lot of rotting, and I finally got them removed.”
Faith’s intention of sharing her videos is to spread the awareness of the drug toxicity and its aftermaths. However, she also has another intention, which is to convey her confidence in having no-teeth. She told BuzzFeed, “I decided to start making TikToks about my dentures to raise awareness and to show the world that people with dentures are beautiful too.”
She gets thousands of comments, like “You are amazing. Thank you for your honesty and congratulations on your recovery,” and “You are beautiful and congratulations on staying clean”.
Faith has already been to rehab 8 times, and was able to stay sober since last year. Until now, she is putting effort to recover her life and refrain herself from any kind of drug use.
