A woman has hit back at trolls after she shared her dental journey of getting a complete denture with viewers on TikTok.
Alex Sandroski, from US, spent a total of $5,965 (£4,896) in three years to get all her teeth removed and replaced with permanent dentures.
The 25-year-old posted on the popular video-sharing platform to show how she puts on and takes off the dentures.
In one hilarious video, Alex shows her dentures in front of the camera and reacts to a background sound asking: "Oh what's this?"
She quickly puts the set of dentures into her mouth and smiles, but the lower part doesn't sit it right and pops up.
"Oopsie," she jokes.
Alex said she got judged by viewers who believe she lost her teeth because of drugs.
One wrote: "You get points for keeping your teeth, not for losing them, hope you find the attention you are looking for here."
"Gummer hummer," a second said while a third added: "This is why I have trust issue."

"The cavities got worse and the dentist discovered I had short roots during the time I had braces, meaning my teeth were getting extremely loose and breaking.
"I had to have the braces removed and a permanent wire put on the back of my teeth to keep them in place.
"But whenever I would eat something, my teeth would crack off and crumble into my mouth."
