I am seventeen right now and I have very horrible teeth. When I was younger I have to admit I did not have good oral hygiene. I was really bad at taking care of them but I am paying for that now. My teeth are very yellow and I even have some brown spots. They also are a little crooked that I would think braces should fix.
My mom will not do anything for my teeth beside fix a cavity and that is only if she has too. I can not really blame her because I had very bad baby teeth and she told me that I needed to start taking care of my teeth or she would not have them fixed. I was just a kid so I did not care back then. My parents paid out alot of money for my teeth care and now will not put any more money towards my teeth unless I am in very bad pain.
What can I do since I can not go to the dentist on my own? I hate my teeth and I hate to smile or laugh in frount of anyone. Please help I have total changed my ways and do take good care of my teeth but I feel without seeing a dentist, I am just too late to think brushing going help me now.
