    Just to update and close this thread, I went back to my orthodontist and I'm having braces again for a fixed price of 200 pounds under the NHS because I qualify under band three and four. Mainly due to the fact he was meant to put on the bottom brace and didn't and a life time retainer was supposed to be fitted too and it wasn't - which I had no idea about. I believe I'm having them fitted around september/october time for a period of 12 to 16 months.

    Thanks to everyone who answered this thread.

    Awesome
    Without being too patronizing...make sure you wear your elastics and retainer when you should

    Any other orthodontist would of fixed it on no matter what.
    Nope, on a 14 year old that would be assault.
