Impact fracture, i still have an eye tooth that hasn`t come out i.e. various problems. it is embarrassing to smile and i must find a way to get my teeth worked on. Any tips??

Desperate for a healthy smile...

Answer:

You did not say where you live in Pennsylvania, but there are four accredited orthodontic programs in the state.

If these are too far away, you might try to locate the Pennsylvania Dental Association or you can contact the American Association of Orthodontists at 401 N. Lindbergh Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63141-7816 to find an orthodontist in your area and at least go for an examination. The AAOP will give you the name of a trained orthodontist in your area.
