Hi, I was wondering if anyone had experience getting jaw surgery on the NHS as an adult? I have a severe overbite, I'm unsure what it is now but when I was seeing an orthodontist as a teen they said it was 13mm on one side and 14mm on the other. I had the removable block braces to try and bring my lower jaw forward and train track braces without much improvement. I was told that I was eligible for surgery to have my lower jaw broken and brought forwards but my dad didn't want me to have it just because I "didn't like my teeth". Ive not seen an orthodontist since I was about 15, I'm 20 now and I've mostly just learned to live with it even though I hate it. But over the past year I've been having really bad jaw pain to the point that sleep feels impossible some days, it hurts to chew and my jaw clicks and locks itself alot. I also get really bad pain by the front of my ears. I was hoping that I could get treatment for this but everywhere I look says that the NHS very rarely gives adults orthodontic treatment. Has anyone had experience getting treatment on the NHS for similar as an adult? I'm scared I'll be laughed out of the dentist if I ask about it because I already missed my chance.
