Can I get braces again at 17 for free?Watch
Well 2-3 years ago I got braces and I stopped wearing my retainers because I had severe sadness but I never went to the doctors and I really just stopped doing everything except food which I had too much of. And I know it’s silly because it was free and I was insecure about it but I’m 17 now and my family is so poor. I can not afford 1k to get it again. How can I convince them?
