When i was 13 my dentist told me i needed braces so they put me forward to an orthodontist who then told me to have braces i need jaw surgery aswell, they took their time with putting my braces on as i was 16 nearly 17 when i got them on and so far im on the NHS and getting all for free. im now close to being 19 in about 4 weeks and finishing education and as im aware at 19 the nhs stops paying for all your treatments, im now worried that cause my surgery wont be for another few months that im suddenly gunna have to pay for the surgury and the braces which i cant afford, what do i do!!?!?!

I am having this surgery too and as far as I am aware as long as the surgery is seen as medically necessary the NHS will pay for it. They also told me that because my treatment started before I was 19, it will still be free if it lasts after then

Have you told your ortho about your concerns? Also do you have a specific surgery date yet?

I don't have my joint clinic appointment until June which is where I will be told specific measurements by my surgeon and consultant. My ortho has told me my upper jaw will be moved forward and my bottom jaw will be moved back.
If you don't mind me asking how close are you to having your surgery done?
