Weʼre raising £1,500 to use as the deposit for braces & an orthodontic procedure to pull down an adult tooth that is growing sideways in the gum for my 17y/old.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

My daughter has had a lot of anxiety issues in her teen years and one of the things she didn't ever want to do was visit the dentist.
Unfortunately we didn't realise that she hadn't lost all of her baby teeth until she started to get severe toothache and we realised she had a tooth growing behind her other teeth, as the picture shows, so after a desperate visit to the dentist, we discovered that the tooth growing behind is a canine and she still has another canines in the gum, but because the baby teeth are in the way, the tooth is now growing sideways and causing considerable pain.
She will need to have her gum cut open and a small chain attached to the tooth which can then be attached to a set of braces and she'll need baby teeth removing and the brace will move that shark tooth back into place.
Because of her age we can't get the procedure done on the NHS and the whole thing costs, £4500. We don't have that kind of money to pay for it, so if you can spare anything. Even £1. Every little helps, so that we can start the process of fixing her smile and more importantly, relieving the pain.
Thank you so much for reading this and if you are able to help, thank you so much.
