"My teeth are rotting out. They are falling out, they're missing, and I need it to change," she told The Doctors, sharing that she previously began her day with coffee and then had "soda all day." She estimated she drank anywhere from 5 to 6 sodas a day. Dentist Dr. Sean Mohtashami offered her a life-changing smile makeover, but only if she agreed to stop drinking soda for 30 days. We are happy to share Leatha was able to kick her habit and even passed a polygraph test proving she had been soda-free for a month.
In addition to giving up soda, she also quit smoking and she joins The Doctors to debut her new smile and another unexpected health benefit related to her new healthy life choices
"I love it. I'm ecstatic. It's amazing," she says of Dr. Sean's stunning dental work. She says she was able to replace her soda habit by drinking more water and coffee, and this helped her lose 50 pounds in the process!
"Your smile is your key to your soul, and her soul is so beautiful," Dr. Sean says of Leatha and all the progress she has made. He also explains the dental procedure Leatha had is expected to last her the rest of her life.
The Doctors note Leatha's story is a great example of why it is important to cut back or stop the drinking of soda and to also quit smoking, noting the earlier one can quit these habits the better it will be for your future and longterm dental health.
