Is Private Dentistry Worth It?

Visiting a private dentist can provide an astounding number of benefits, through a variety of treatments and even more facilities and advances in technology, making private dental treatments more effective and efficient.

Whether you’re thinking of having dental treatment or are looking to register with a new dentist, a private dentist in Essex may have not crossed your mind. With that being said, a private dentist can offer many exceptional services and benefits which you otherwise wouldn’t find through an NHS dentist.

Here are just a handful of benefits of visiting a private dentist and why it could be a better option for you.

5-Star Dentistry Service

With a private dentist, you’ll be paying for a better service with guaranteed treatment in a calming and peaceful environment where you can relax during your dental treatments. 

Unlike visiting an NHS dentist, which rely on government funding, private dentists are able to put all time and money into providing high-quality treatments without cutting corners.

This better service also means that patients can take advantage of more experienced dentists and hygienists who can provide a more dedicated experience to focus on giving the best possible treatment for money.

Wider Selection of Treatments

Often, NHS dental patients will need to go back and forth and visit different partners for dental treatments, with the NHS only offering a small number of treatments. However, a private dentist has all aspects of dental treatment covered under one roof. This means that if you are looking at combining two dental treatments together, it can be far easier and quicker to visit a private dentist so that a treatment plan can be provided which is better suited to you.

Finding a good dentist can often be compared to finding a needle in a haystack, and once you have found a dentist you feel comfortable with, it can often be frustrating to be passed between multiple dentists for your dental treatments. A private dentist offers a great selection of dental treatments, including cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, endodontics, dental hygiene treatments and even some anti-wrinkle treatments for facial rejuvenation.

Painless Treatments

If you suffer from dental phobia, it can be a better option to visit a private dentist who can take the time to ensure you are comfortable during treatment and provide a positive experience.

Private dentists handle every treatment with care, compassion and understanding, with some private dental clinics even offering complete pain-free dental treatments. With many of us avoiding visiting the dentist due to a negative and painful past experience, the option to have a completely painless procedure can be life-changing.

Shorter Waiting Times

In recent months, many patients have found huge difficulty in booking appointments with their NHS dentist, with some appointments unavailable for several weeks. Once appointments have been booked, it can then be a waiting game of delayed or cancelled appointments with hectic schedules leaving patients in a waiting room for between 30-40 minutes.

However, private dentists are able to skip the waiting times with a better timetable and longer appointment times. This means that not only will you be given a fast appointment, you’ll also not be expected to wait around for a long time and will be seen to with no delays. With a part of dental anxiety triggered by long waiting times in the waiting room, visiting a private dentist can alleviate the stress and anxiety.

Longer Appointments

As mentioned above, longer appointments are scheduled for each treatment so that if you’d prefer your dentist to take their time and give you several breaks in between your treatment, that option is available. 

With longer appointments, you’ll also be given better care that isn’t rushed nor compromised and your dentist can take their time to provide a positive experience and give you the best possible treatment and care.

Modern Dentistry Facilities

While NHS dental clinics have all the equipment needed to carry out treatments, private dentists have a larger investment and can therefore have access to the latest technology and equipment. 

This means that more advanced treatments can be offered that are also far more comfortable and even quicker than alternative NHS treatments. The advancement of new technology in private dental clinics also means that results can be achieved far sooner with excellent clinical results.

Teeth Fitted in a Day!

‘Teeth in a day’ refers to a treatment where all of the teeth or dentures in the jaw are replaced by dental implants and the patient receives new fixed (non-removable and screwed in) teeth on the same day.

This technique has the advantages that treatment time and treatment complexity is significantly reduced. It usually means that the patient can avoid additional bone grafting surgery, so it ends up being a cost-effective and relatively more comfortable way of restoring large gaps or complete arches.
