Hello, I'm Viltė, I'm 17 years old.

I knew from a young age that my teeth were crooked. It was obvious and it made me avoid smiling in pictures. As I've grown, I've also had a bigger problem: a noticeable difference in the sizes of my jaws. Although the aesthetic appearance of the smile doesn't really bother me, an incorrect bite and crooked teeth can cause more serious problems in the future (pressed nerves, loss of healthy teeth, breathing problems). I always thought that it would be enough to straighten my teeth with briquettes to avoid the consequences in the future, but encouraged by the family dentist, I still visited the orthodontist and later the surgeon S. Grybauskas. During the visits, I learned that briquettes alone will not be enough, it will be necessary to do an operation on both jaws in order to correct the bite and not have problems in the future. My parents and I also learned that this whole process will cost 13,000 euros and we realized that we would not be able to accumulate this amount even in a few years. For this reason, I am asking for your help in achieving my dream and I will be extremely grateful to everyone for their contribution.

Thank you for your kindness!
