Regulate your dental costs by visiting the NHS dentist in Oxford

Did you know that quite a few High Street dentists accept NHS patients? If you are a student, in particular, this information is really important since it can save you hundreds of pounds in oral care. At Studental, we offer NHS services to students or other individuals who are entitled to NHS dental treatments. Our NHS dentist in Oxford will guide you through the different procedures and costs. In the UK, everyone is entitled to NHS dental care in order to keep their mouth, teeth and gums healthy and disease-free. What treatments are justified by the NHS? If you are looking to undergo treatment with our NHS dentist in Oxford, you should know in advance that there are some procedures that we can offer and some that we can’t. If you want to have dentures, root canal treatment, braces or general preventative treatment (professional cleanings etc), then the NHS will cover it. However, if you want to undergo cosmetic dentistry, the NHS cannot cover it (with a few exceptions where cosmetic dental treatments are necessary for the restoration of teeth that would otherwise be lost). If you are unsure about the treatments you are entitled to as an NHS patient at Studental, feel free to ask us and we will guide you through costs and procedures. Many of our patients opt for a combination of private and NHS treatment. However, dentists cannot refuse you the treatment you are allowed under the NHS and provide it to you privately instead. Dental costs as an NHS patient While some patients are entitled to free NHS dental care, most people have to...

Is there a risk if I delay my visit to the dentist in Oxford?

A dental check-up is nobody’s idea of a fun activity– however, delaying or postponing a visit to the dentist can have serious oral health consequences. Going to the dentist twice a year has many benefits and there are many reasons for looking forward to this visit. Most dental associations recommend visiting a dentist at least twice a year. However, you may need to visit the dentist in Oxford more frequently, depending on the status of your oral health. Preventative visits at Studental can save you much money in the long run – especially if you are a student. Dental hygiene is important While there are a lot of things that matter when it comes to health, oral hygiene is definitely one of the most important. Healthy teeth and gums can ensure adequate oral function and digestion. More importantly, visiting the dentist in Oxford frequently, can make a difference. Avoid expensive treatment If you are visiting the dentist in Oxford regularly, you are more likely to spend less money on your oral health compared to those who come in only when problems appear. You can’t really feel dental issues such as cavities and gum disease during their early stages, but they can quickly evolve into serious problems. This can mean a lot of wasted time and money. Your dentist in Oxford can diagnose most oral issues at an early stage and save you from expensive and extensive treatments. Plus, we accept NHS patients, therefore overall cost is likely to be less than you imagine. Oral cancer diagnosis Oral cancer is becoming a common occurrence and still, a lot of patients...

What do I get at the NHS dentist in Oxford?

It’s not easy to get to see an NHS dentist in Oxford these days, as demand on the service is high. So, you’ll be pleased to hear that here at Studental, we are registering new NHS patients as we speak. You don’t need to be a student either: anyone who qualifies for NHS treatment can sign on with us. Whether you need a check-up or cleaning with our hygienist, treatment for gum disease or an infection, a replacement tooth, or teeth straightening work, we can help. Not all treatments are eligible for NHS funding, but our NHS dentist in Oxford will let you know when discussing your course of care whether it is covered by the NHS or not. NHS dentist in Oxford: free or paid for? Because we don’t pay when we go to see our GP, sometimes there is confusion about whether we pay to see the NHS dentist in Oxford. There are certain categories of patients who don’t pay for their treatment. These include the under 18s, young people in full-time education, pregnant women and people on benefits or a low income. If you don’t fall within these categories, you will most likely have to pay for your treatment. However, you can still be an NHS patient. Your treatment will be subsidised by the NHS, and you will receive a whole range of dental care at a very low cost. For example: check-ups, fillings, dentures and bridges all fall under the NHS umbrella. You will pay more depending on the complexity of the treatment. It is divided into 3 bands. Band 1: £21.60 This includes examinations,...
