Anyone had Orthognathic (JAW) surgery (NHS-Treatment advice needed)
So i was referred to a dental hospital recently and having had my consultation on friday. I have been told i will need surgery on my jaw and need orthodontic treatment before hand to correct the overall bite.
Being in my early 20's will i be expected to pay for the orthodontics?(privately)
I wasnt told if i would have to and searching the net have found it adults can get it done on the NHS free is it is needed i.e, not for cosmetic reasons.
As the dental hospital told me i would need them for the surgery as part of the overall treatment plan, surely this is medically needed ?
Anyone had to go through this?
Im due in for a consultation (surgeon) on 23rd of march.
