    This week in the UK, there was a disturbing report about dentists and the cost of dental treatment. Apparently some unscrupulous members of the profession have been carrying out unnecessary procedures on patients from fillings, x-rays, removal of teeth and even check-ups. No one is suggesting that this is all dentists but there is plenty of anecdotal evidence to suggest that some have no scruples whatsoever and are exploiting the system to make as much money as possible.

    No one could argue that dentistry today is far better than it was years ago. Too many people can recount awful stories about treatment at the hands of a sadistic or badly trained dentist Cheapest Cigarettes In The World. Thanks to advances there have been many advances, where crooked teeth can be straightened, gum disease treated, dentures that fit and a confident smile due to gleaming white teeth. The downside of course due to changes in contracts many dentists have chosen to leave the NHS and despite government assurances many people have been unable to get free dentristry any more. And for anyone who pays will have seen the cost of dental treatment rise and rise Newport Cigarettes Official Website.

    However, if dentists are carrying our unnecessary work, it is not just the financial cost of dental treatment that we should be worried about. Personally I've never had much faith in dentists and for many years wouldn't go near them. I've had rather painful experiences of the financial cost of dental treatment as well as the psychological and physical costs.

    I spent years in pain from bad teeth because of poor dental work, culminating in being forced to have an operation where 17 of my teeth were removed at once under general anaesthetic. By that time I had developed a phobia of dentists and a near addiction to pain killers which I had been munching daily for years. A few weeks after the extraction of 17 teeth, I was lucky to be referred to the country's leading specialist dentist in preserving teeth, who treated patients with phobias. He was furious at the fact that my mouth had been 'butchered' and said the teeth should never have been removed. He consequently discovered when I eventually let him touch my mouth (after nearly two years) that the severe pain I was in was from my jaw that slips out of place exacerbated by the fact that I had never learnt to swallow properly.

    That was nineteen years ago. The cost of dental treatment to me personally has been very high. Obviously I don't have many of my own teeth left, but I do go regularly to the dentist. The phobia has gone, but I still vomit before I go to the dentist and she always has to wrap me in one of those silver blankets as my body temperature drops through the floor because of the fear. What has changed though is that I won't let the dentist do any procedures without discussing at length why they need to be done. I'm lucky I have a very good dentist who knows about my history and is happy to discuss, explain and leave the choice of what I will have done up to me.

    When I read this weeks newspaper headlines, I wondered again why so many of us find it difficult to challenge the medical profession. Back in the 50s and 60s professional people in all areas were treated with respect and as if their word was law. But surely times have moved on? In 2011 people are far more outspoken and vociferous about their rights and what they want than they were fifty or sixty years ago. Perhaps they haven't moved on as much as they should and we still hold professionals such as dentists, doctors, lawyers slightly in awe

    But however much you may hold your dentist in awe, it's your mouth that's being treated and in dentistry today you must exercise your right to question your treatment. Here are my tips:

    If you don't understand ask them to explain

    Don't just blindly follow their recommendations. Ask questions

    Set out your own requirements - eg music, use of gel before injections,etc

    If you've been x-rayed, make sure your dentist explains exactly what you're looking at

    Discuss your options and alternative treatments Price Of Marlboro Cigarettes.

    Don't agree to instant treatment -

    Ask where you can get a second opinion if you're concerned

    Change your dentist if you're not happy with your treatment.

    So next time you're thinking about the cost of dental treatment, it's not just the cost to your purse or the public purse that you should think about Buying Cigarettes Online, it's actually the cost to your own health that you need to consider. What price do you put on that?

    Remember Newport Cigarettes Price, dentists, doctors, lawyers and any other professions that are held in high esteem are just like the rest of us and you should always have the right and the confidence to question them. Don't just let things be blindly done to you. It's up to you to take responsibility and make your own choices. Good they may be - but they're not perfect and we shouldn't expect them to be.
