Hi, I live in York I’m 17, and I had my teeth sorted about a couple of years ago. I’ve had treatment on my teeth since I was 8, and I still wear braces now. My teeth were perfect after I had traintracks, and I was given a clear bottom retainer (which I still wear). At the time I did wonder why I wasn’t given a top one as well. He replied that if I wear the bottom one, it will keep the top ones in place. It hasn’t. I have 1 reasonably out of place, and two others slightly. I know that it doesn’t sound like much, but from having my teeth perfect, and wearing my retainer like I should have, makes me rather annoyed in a sense. I’m almost 18, and I was wondering if I now had to pay for treatment, ie retainers etc? And also, I am still in full time education, due to me having to re-sit the whole two years of my A levels, as I have been very ill, and hospitalised occasionaly. I will finish my A levels when I am 19. So would still being in full time education mean that I can still have treatment on my teeth for free? Thank you for your time, and I do not mind if you cannot fully answer my question.
