I go to the dentist in March and would've had my 18th birthday by then. I'm currently in sixth form and will be until I am 19. Will I need to pay for braces if they have to be kept on for longer than a year? Say until I'm 20 and not in the sixth form? Or will it be free because I received them when I was 18 and in full-time education? It would only be to fix one tooth that's out of place, so would it take longer than a year?

Age aside, if you've only got one tooth out of place, you'd be getting them for cosmetic purposes and for that reason you'd have to pay.

I got braces when I was 16 ish and had them removed when I was 19. You only pay for braces if you are over the age of 18 WHEN you get them put on. Although you only get braces free on the NHS if your out of place teeth affect your bite. I believe you need to have an underbite/overbite of greater than 5mm or something. Not sure specific numbers.
