A private dentist is a good investment for your teeth and your overall health. You will get more out of your appointments and will be able to enjoy better oral hygiene due to the nature of a private dental service. When you choose to go private, you will pay more for the service, but you will also get more in return.
As a general rule, the NHS won’t provide hygienist appointments unless something is deemed to be wrong with your teeth or gums. You will usually have a clean during your appointment, but this is of a very different nature to the kind of clean you would get with a dental hygienist. You can book a hygienist appointment at a private clinic whenever you like.
If you have a private appointment, chances are it will be longer and more relaxed. You will be given more time, so it is a good idea if you are a nervous patient.
