How do I go about getting orthodontic surgery Watch

    For 18 months I have had braces on to fix an underbite. My bottom teeth now sit perfectly behind my front teeth.

    However, it has not changed my jaw at all. My smile is still terrible, and I look very unattractive from a side view.

    Has anyone had surgery to fix an under/overbite? If so, how did you go about getting it? Should I mention it to my orthodontist when I get my braces taken off in the next few weeks, or would I have to go directly to the NHS?

    Mention it to your orthodontist. I have a friend who had his braces, and then had jaw surgery after they were taken off. Your orthodontist will be able to advise you on what to do next, and likely if you may be eligible to get it on the NHS
