I came back to England a couple of years ago but I had braces

Resolved Question:

I came back to England a couple of years ago but I had braces put on abroad. Right now I had these braces two years and have been the same since I have gotten them (no repairs, tightening etc) because the NHS said they wont cover me and that I may need to go private. at this point I just want the braces off because its beginning to cause problems and I cannot afford to go private so I wanted to know if they would at least take them off because I might try and take them off with pliers and it will only get worse especially since I have a broken bite turbo.

My question wasn't to whether I could take them off myself was that will the NHS take them off for me since it is beginning to detrimental to my health?
