Why Is Dentistry so Expensive?

keeping teeth cleanOkay, so I’m going to step out a little bit here and say that dentistry is NOT expensive, it is actually neglect which is expensive.

If you have a full set of gleaming white teeth which you have looked after since birth, cleaning them twice per day  with a fluoride containing toothpaste and using interdental brushes or floss and mouthwash in between meals then your dental health costs can be as little as  £10 per month if you join a dental health maintenance plan with a local private practice.

On the other hand, if you neglect your teeth, or have in the past, then your dental health bills are likely to be considerably more expensive, and here’s why:

Restorative dentistry costs

Dental laboratoryIf your teeth have to be restored for example by using dental veneers, dental crowns or dental implants (to replace missing teeth) then the chances are your dentist will be using a dental laboratory.

As with many things, it’s possible to use cheap  or expensive suppliers. Using a cheap overseas laboratory, perhaps from China  could get the cost of the dental crown, veneer or implant down to a few pounds, the dentist could pass on this cost saving to you and therefore save you a great deal of money.

However, as with many things you get what you pay for. Cheap overseas work often comes with minimal guarantees as to the quality of the workmanship or materials… Do you really want your dentist compromising on quality of the material that you’re going to have in your mouth permanently?

We always recommend that you ask your dentist to see which dental laboratory they are using, you can then do your own research into the quality of workmanship from this particular laboratory.

Keeping up-to-date with modern research and training.

If you have to have more complex and advanced dental treatments then your dentist will more than likely have been on a recent training course to keep them updated with the most relevant thinking and research. Attending courses such of this has a double cost, the cost of the course itself and the cost of lost revenue whilst the dentist is out of the practice.

If you want to have a dentist that is able to treat neglected, decayed or damaged in then it will definitely the legal elsewhere certainly cost this dentist in continuing professional development in this chosen area of dental treatments.

Having a team of highly educated dental staff.

As well as the dentist themselves the team need to be fully updated with the use of modern materials, equipment and thinking. If you have a tooth to replace my offer example, you will want to know that the whole team are fully informed about how the tooth replacement process works, again this costs money to the team to attend this type of course.

Cheap dentistry.

Maintaining your dental health and keeping your oral health care routine in check will ensure that  you don’t need to access the more expensive dental treatments such as restorative dentistry  or advanced treatment modalities such as replacing missing teeth, bleeding gums or  dealing with gingivitis or the more serious periodontitis..
