What Orthodontic Treatment Would I Qualify For?

Q.
I’m a 20 year old student and very self conscious. My canines broke through my gums on my top rack of teeth because my baby teeth didn’t fall out until late. My right one fell out a few months ago, therefore my canine has lowered into place but is slightly twisted. My left canine hasn’t been able to lower because the baby tooth still hasn’t fallen out. This has led to the canine severely twisting.
All I want is for the final baby tooth to be removed and for my front six teeth (my top incisors and canines) to be straightened. What treatment would I qualify for? How much will it be and is there any extra help for students?
A.
Hi, thank you for getting in touch with your question. Unfortunately, I don’t think there is any help for students over 18 years old and braces aren’t free after 18 I’m afraid. It is worth seeing a highly qualified orthodontist as many now provide payment plans to help you manage the fees. Kind regards, Andrew.
