Gaten Shared His Experiences In Life 

Gaten has been bullied in his past, and his teeth situation has prevented him from getting many roles in the past. 

He revealed that his height and teeth were the biggest reasons he was not getting roles in an interview. 

It affected him a lot during his auditioning days. 

He would go three times a week for auditions and got rejected every time. 

There was a constant no from every side. 

But he had people in his life who motivated him to stay patient, and his hard work and dedication paid off. 

He has very supportive parents, and he is very grateful for that.

Gaten Was Born With Cleidocranial Dysplasia

Gaten was born with a genetic condition that affects almost every part of the body. 

Normal people's baby teeth fall out, and adult teeth come in. But in his case, it does not work like that. 

The body does know that the baby teeth fall out, and adult teeth come in. So the baby's teeth keep on growing. 

So the baby's teeth must be extracted by a dentist. Gaten has also removed his baby teeth from the dentist. 

His doctor told him that other teeth would come to fill the gap, but it did not happen. 

So the dentist supplies a chain in that gap so that it will pull down his teeth manually. 

He had gone through three surgeries and four extractions. 

He said he had to go through more surgeries and extraction in the upcoming days. 

Gaten is raising awareness about this rare condition.
