Can I Get Implant Treatment on the NHS?

Q.
Hi Kalpesh, unfortunately my situation isn’t great. I haven’t taken enough care of my teeth over the last year or so and as a result they’re not in good shape. Aside from being worn down, they are also really crooked so my mouth does not look pleasant at all. I’ve been doing some research and as far as I can see I have 2 main options. I could have the bad teeth removed on the NHS and then pay for a brace with a private orthodontist, or have them taken out and get a full set of dental implants. Is this correct? Ideally I’d like to know how much this would all cost. Would I be able to receive free or discounted treatment as I am currently 25, fresh out of university and don’t have a job?

Hello and thank you for getting in touch with me. Unfortunately you would not be able to get this kind of treatment through the NHS because it is classed as cosmetic dentistry so you would need to pay for it in full. It’s hard to tell you what the right course of treatment would be without actually seeing you for an examination. The best thing to do would be to book a consultation with a good, experienced dentist to discuss treatment methods, and then work out a budget to help you pay for the treatment.
