I am a girl of 18 years, must have a hanger on within the next month. It is not something I am looking forward to, but it is a part of a treatment that bl.a. also includes a jaw operation.
I have searched a bit online, I have seen that it is possible to get a hanger that is more “transparent”, and going more in the one with the teeth.
My whole treatment will be paid by the state, as it was set in the time when I was under 18, but they would wait with the treatment, they thought my lower jaw was fully developed.
Now is my question, then, is whether there could be chances of the state also will pay for the “transparent” hanger?
And if not, how much should I expect to pay for it?
Now if I decide me for the “transparent” hanger, when and how should the dentist know it?
I think you should ask the dental practitioner who should treat you. I can't say anything about what options they have.

Hope you can use my answer.
With kind regards
