Who qualifies for NHS coverage?
Young people under the age of 18 with a clear need for treatment may qualify for full coverage of treatment by the NHS.
Adult orthodontic coverage is not commonly available through the NHS, but it will be approved on a case-to-case basis. If the appearance or health of an adult’s teeth, jaw or face are deemed of concern, NHS coverage might be an option.
The Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need (IOTN) is the rating system used to assess your eligibility for NHS treatment coverage.
