Dentist shortage

I think the demand on dentists has risen considerably with the higher use of social media. There are much more pictures taken, published, shown and those pictures must have perfect teeth.

Hence, dentists are one of the most needed professions today.

You simply can’t show your face without good teeth and those who can pay the most to get the teeth fixed get the fastest service.

Whilst those wanting NHS services won’t be able to find a dentist easily because dentists find it much easier to make money selling their services.

The perfect smile has become one of the biggest selling points of the cosmetic industry, of which dentistry has become the latest gravy train.

See the protruding tooth on one side, that is a NHS denture that is slanted to one side and affects my facial expression.

Looking at my own pictures with my old denture, I wondered why it is that so many people with NHS dentures seem to have imperfect dentures whilst the paid for ones always look better. I was told that NHS services cannot access the full variety of tools required to make dentures perfect.

Of course that greatly disadvantages NHS dentist users from getting well paid jobs because I reckon you won’t even get an extras job as actor unless your teeth are perfect. And who is paying for it?

I am now waiting since a year to get a new denture and have to attend fortnightly fittings to just get a new denture. It takes a long time.
