When we were younger, there was concept about the ‘tooth fairy’ coming to visit when we lost our teeth. The one that would carefully place money underneath our pillows as a reward for losing those baby teeth. It had been so long ago, I’d forgotten about it. Until today when I had a regular check up. He reminded me that I needed to get a tooth removed.
NHS Dental care is so expensive nowadays, I can see why people would want to avoid going. They can charge huge prices to settle problems or corrections. However this all depends on what you need done and what band your treatment falls into. I remember one time reading the treatment sheet and seeing charges can go up to £350+.
Why do you think they charge so much?Leave your comments below
Also, if you receive benefits or have anything else that allows your costs to be reduced. You could be more inclined to go, because it won’t charge you as much as another person. Which ever way you look at it, it still make you second guess whether to attend your visit. Some people are not ready, because they dislike dentist surgeries and the whole experience in general. Others are affected by the costs of the procedures.
Overall, its a personal decision to be made. I think it is beneficial to go, because you have something left untreated, it can damage or affect you and your well-being in the long run. So I’d recommend getting check ups, when they write to you in the post. You don’t even need to go out of your way. Set aside a day for the trip, so you have time to yourself without anything else planned (this is helpful, just incase you have something booked). You never know how much difference the visit can make for you.
Now as adult, I’m sure we don’t believe in the tooth fairy story anymore. Sorry but this time round there are no incentives for getting your teeth taken out. (Apart from if it has been causing you problems, you’re more or less likely free from pain now). On the bright side, what you have gained is a insight into your dental health and the ways to improve it by what your dentist has instructed you to do.
