    Hey I got my braces off in November and im not happy with them. I still have a over bite and they are sticking out alot they haven't been pushed back much, i was wondering will the NHS put braces back on my teeth to push them back more and get rid of the over bite. I am 19 by the way i will soon be going back to my orthodontist for a check up if anyone could help me out that would be good thanks.

    I think generally the nhs won't cover orthodontics for adults , it has to be pretty bad for them to do it, the criteria are mentioned here https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/orthodontics/
