Hi. I'm Lauren, I'm 17 years old and I have (or rather, had)two baby canine teeth. One of my baby canines is totally intact while the other had a visible gap was deteriorating, with the adult tooth just barely visible and poking out. The rotting baby tooth had a HUGE gap in it and it has been driving me crazy for a year now since my last dentist visit. I've been begging and pleading with my parents to take me to see an orthodontist like the dentist said I needed to. However, every time I bring it up they would just complain about how expensive it will be and how neither of them have the money for it (I have no dental coverage.) I was fiddling with it earlier, wiggling it and pulling on it and it popped out. There wasn't an absurd amount of blood or anything but now I'm really worried.
