Why wont the NHS fund my braces?
I went to the orthodontist in hope to get braces for my teeth, and my orthodontist said i have a 4mm overbite and overjet and also a lot of gaps that are the same size throughout my teeth. She said I would have to go private if i want them. I would need a standard brace which about 2000 – 3000 pounds. My mum cannot afford that because she does not work because my brother has autism and he gets fed through a tubein his stomach. Also he cannot talk. So she has to stay at home to look after him and take him to school. I just want straight teeth, i hate smiling because everybody sees my horrid teeth. By the way I am 13 years old.
