Getting my braces tightened abroad? Watch

Report Thread starter 6 years ago
I'm thinking about plans for the summer and I might (lets say 70/80% sure) go to spain for all of it (june 14th - september 30th)

Problem is i have braces, which currently i'm getting tightened every 6 weeks.

I'm going to uni in october so I will be changing my orthodontist anyway, but for the summer what will i do about getting them tightened? flights back to london cost about 250 quid each way, so no way will i be able to afford that.

Would it be possible to go to a dentist in spain just to get them tightened? I know of an english one in my town (ive been there before when i lived there, before I got my braces - so language isn't a problem) so as long as they see all my notes will i just be able to get them tightened there?

I will be so bummed if I have to stay here for the summer just because of my braces lol :/

edit: just an extra question; what would be the consequences if I don't get them tightened for the 3 months im in spain at all and just leave them on, would that wreck my teeth lol?

You mean you know an English speaking dentist in the town you're going to? Can't you get in touch with him and ask before you go?

I doubt you would have any problems getting them tightened. I went to a few dentists when I was doing a year abroad in Europe and they are much more efficient and cheaper than here.
