My name is Rachael and I’m now 21 years old. My teeth journey started when I was around 12/13 when I had a small gap in between my two front teeth which I was insecure about. I pushed for a referral from my dentist to see if I was eligible for braces to sort the gap. Eventually I had the opportunity for braces with the NHS, however we quickly found out that my teeth were more complicated than first thought. I was missing 3 teeth between either side of my front two teeth and one next to it, therefore I had no adult teeth behind those baby teeth. I was also missing a wisdom tooth.
