Bad teeth!

when my mother tried to wean me off the bottle, i was around 2. sad to say, i was a very stubborn child. everytime my mother tried to give me a cup instead of my bottle, i would whine and cry and wreak so much havoc that my mother would give me a bottle to shut me up. it was not her smartest decision.

because of this, i didnt get off the bottle until i was FIVE years old. yes, FIVE. by then, my front teeth had fallen out and grown back in. now i have a HUGE overbite. well i am fourteen years old, and i am extremely self conscious about my teeth. my parents cant afford to get me braces, so i have to wait until we find someone that takes insurance. i am soo depressed because of my teeth. i feel like no one likes me because of them, and i feel like all the guys at my school look at me as disgusting.

i dont know what to do! all i want is to feel better about myself, but its impossible. its all i want to feel good about the way i look. honestly, the way i feel couldnt possibly be put into words. i DO believe with all my heart that if i could change this, i could feel better about myself. its not my fault my teeth are this way. and that is what hurts the most.

I am an adult male who has bad teeth. My parents could not afford braces for me either. I didn't get picked on in school but I was, and still am, quite self-conscious about my teeth. I know it is harder for a woman with bad teeth than it is for a man. I sure hope you get them fixed because I am in my fourties and the poor self images do not go away. Good luck to you young lady.
