    Depends on your definition of bad - for you personally they may look terrible, but from anthers perspective they may look perfectly fine.

    I'm sure they couldn't have moved that much in 3 months anyway, surely?

    Braces privately range from £1700-£3000+ depending on type.

    I had braces for two years and then got a retainer so I know what you've been through and what I'm talking about

    Don't talk about killing yourself, there are some people without access to a doctor for the most basic of things and you were able to get braces, so count yourself lucky!

    It's such a shame that you lost your retainer! You shouldn't have left it so long to get a new one, I've had my braces off for over 18 months now, but even so my teeth still move if I don't wear my retainer for just a couple of days - let alone 3 whole months...!

    In the UK it costs about £2,000 to get braces privately, in the US that's about $3,500 at a very rough guess. However, it's worth talking to your orthodontist about going private because they are developing new kinds of braces which are less expensive.

    If your orthodontist thinks it's fine, maybe it is fine! After seeing your teeth really straight from the braces, any change is likely to seem horrendous, it probably isn't as bad as you think it is.

    Stop sitting in a dark room, switch the light on and get over it. If you're depressed over it then you need to see a doctor because that is just not normal.

    Aw I feel bad for you. You don't even look bad! Can you post a picture of your teeth. And if you have acne they sell stuff that gets rid of it... you really shouldn't do that
