Since a young age I have had a phobia of dentists and would always try and avoid them. It was only until 17 years of age I knew I needed to do something about my teeth. I had "fang like teeth" and was really embarrassed of them. I was referred by my dentist at the time to the Dental Hospital to see if I could have a brace fitted. I visited the Dental hospital several times to meet different people. I had moulds done and was told that I could have braces. It wasn’t until I attended my next apt that I was told unless I had jaw surgery I wouldn’t be getting the braces. I have never had a problem with my jaw even appearance my jaw was fine. I was very disappointed that I was told I couldn’t have braces without getting jaw surgery (waiting list was also 3 years+) After waiting nearly 5 months from appointment to appointment to be told I wasn’t getting them was devastating. I now wear Invisalign and have around 1 year left on my treatment after going private and I was told no jaw surgery was needed.
