Are they needed for a medical reason, or is it just cosmetic?

I suspect the latter, if so the best approach would be to ask nicely rather than demand.

The csa rules mention braces as an example of what might be an example for a change of assessment under their rules.

so I reckon the answer is YES. Especially if you have a dentist telling you they are necessary.
