Can I Get Free Braces Because Of My Circumstances?
I’m wondering if you can help me. I’m 30 and therefore I assume that I am too old for standard free dental treatment but my front teeth overlap and I have a 10mm overbite eye teeth that stick out and my lower teeth are also overcrowded! It’s a bit of a nightmare to be perfectly honest with you because I have trouble eating properly. It is beginning to affect me psychologically also as I look in the mirror and just hate my smile, so it deeply affects self confidence! Are there any circumstances under which I would get braces for free on NHS? I have taken the time out to do my research and looked into private treatment but can’t afford it at all unfortunately. The figures involved are simply too much.
Hello there. Yes private treatment can seem expensive when you look at it, however when there is a lot of work involved then it is justified. Regarding the potential for NHS treatment, unfortunately I do not think you would get braces for free.
