Do you know how much does it cost for braces? It is said more than 500,000 yen because you can’t use any health insurance. In my daughter’s case, she is enough young to try a new braces called “toko kyosei” in Japanese. It means a base correction. Here’s a link to images of toko kyosei.
One brace cost 60,000 yen and she needed two braces. She will go to the dentist twice a month until her teeth alignment is neat. It will take about half a year and more.
