A. You cannot have invisible braces on the nhs you would have to pay for them, you could see an nhs orthodontist to have a consultation but you may not be eligible for treatment.

Im 27 years old and will be on maternity leave, I have been advised by my friend who is a dental nurse that I can request that my dentist refere me to an NHS hospital to have braces fitted for 3 months for free due to my excemption from dental costs for one year after my child is born.

Please can you confirm if this is indeed true and if so how do I go about having it done.
