I need braces...Watch
My teeth aren't aligned and are growing all directions at the moment and it's hideous. I've tried asking my parents if they'll allow me to have braces but they keep saying no and that I don't need them.
One reason I want them is for my own personal health in the future and two is because people just insult me for having bad teeth.
I literally see people walking around and smiling at each other but I can't because I hate my smile.
Is there a way to convince my parents to allow me to get braces? I'm sure the NHS will allow me to attain them for free (I'm 16) as now my gums have started to bleed when I'm bushing my teeth which is again a sign of gum disease...
But the other problem is that my parents are just scared to pay money to dentists.
I really, really, really need them and I'm not sure what to do...

when you get there and the whole check up is done, ask you dentist about braces. Then be like "do i have to pay?" and they'll explain the whole NHS thing to your parents
that's how i did it anyway lol
Just go to your local nhs dentist. It should be free if you're still in full-time education.
