Crown Dental Instruments

What's the difference between NHS and private....?

when having root canal treatment. My Dentist has advised me if I get it done on the NHS it's a basic treatment as NHS resticts what they can do ?!, but if I go private I get a sturdier and better job done.... preparation etc, is this true or is he spinning me a line.

I've worked as a dental nurse for more years than i care to remember, and it never fails to amaze me what total and utter shite some dentists will tell their patients!
Having a root canal carried out on the NHS is not a basic procedure, anymore than having it carried out on a private basis, the dentist will still do exactly the same procedure, he might use a higher grade of material/instruments under a private basis, but the treatment will still be the same at the end of the day!

The reason some dentists are telling patients that treatments are restricted on the NHS, is all due to the new contract which was introduced in April 2006, a root canal will earn the dentist 3 uda points- this stands for Units of Dental Activity, as root canals are normally carried out over a 2 stage visit, he still only earns 3 uda's despite 2 appointments, many dentists are now telling patients that the work they need carried out is to complex to be carried out in the surgery and are referring them to hospital, or as you have been told, your treatment is restricted by the nhs.
If your dentist is working under an nhs contract you are intitiled to have any work carried out on the nhs, but on the strength of this, it's also worth rembering that if you need a crown and you opt for a private crown the root canal will have to be carried out on a private basis, as you cannot do Nhs/private treatment on the same tooth.
If your still unsure have a word with the dentist or call your local Primary Care Trust, it's unethical to offer Nhs services and then refuse to carry them out!
