Hi there, I’ve had my braces off for a year or so now, used my retainers until they told me I was good to only wear them once a week ish.

Unfortunately, my wisdom teeth only just started growing in, and it seems to be causing some over crowding at the front. One of my two bottom front teeth is being pushed towards the centre of my mouth. I noticed it a month ago but haven’t really thought much about it until now when it seemed to get a bit worse.

The retainers don’t fit anymore, causing severe pain when I use them. I’m 19 too so I no longer receive free dental care. Is there anything I can do??

Are you registered with a NHS dentist? Depending on the work you need doing, it can work out cheaper than private care. I would suggest going to see your dentist if you are in pain just to get the best advice for treatment.

Wisdom teeth are a blessing imo.

I’m not in any pain, I’m pretty sure I’m just worried cosmetically. So I doubt I’ll be able to get anything done for cheap/free unless it’s a medical issue.

I'm in the exact same boat right now but I'm turning 18 in a couple of months so I don't think I'd be able to get braces once again.
