    There are new braces called Invisaline or something like that. I don't know how much they cost but they can't be seen which is better that the normal ones. I want mine straightened too

    Hi there

    I've recently looked into this too - went to see a private orthodontist. My bottom teeth are really crooked and I have problems with the gum on the front one which I thought having them straightened might help. There are a few options but they are all really expensive. Like you say - even the normal braces cost £2-3k ish, The orthodontist didn't rate the Invisalign system at all. You can also have a brace fixed to the back of your teeth - but they're goldplated!!!!! And so they cost a small fortune. Anyway - even if I spent the money and wore braces for 18 months they still couldn't guarantee the gum issue would resolve so decided against it anyway.

    Wish I'd taken the opportunity to get the bottom ones fixed at school!!

    me too, my mum told me i would regret it back then and i really do. i think i was more worried about what people would say etc. i really thought the normal ones would be alot cheaper. i even asked on the nhs if you can get them but they said no, not for adults.:sigh:
