I probably have the most incomprehensible problem any dentist has ever seen.
I was given braces at the age of twelve. This was about ten years ago. I went for tightening about three times and then stopped going. My mother became ill and lost her health insurance. we've never had the funds to remove the brackets that I still have on my teeth. They've been there for a decade now. My teeth are starting to decay, the brackets are leaving a yellow stain and i bleed from my guns frequently. I've just obtained health insurance as an adult but I've no idea know how to go about fixing my issue (mostly because I'm embarrassed).
1. will i be able to straighten my teeth without brackets? I honestly do not want to have braces for another couple years. It is embarrassing.my overbite isn't serious.
2. will they ever be white again after all of this decay?
3.Will I have to have all of my teeth replaced by veneers? these teeth see to be very damaged.
Any feedback is well appreciated.
