  • I got some kinda bad toothache right now
    where can i go without paying £3000000000 or waiting 2 weeks?
    I'm not registered with a dentist at all and haven't been in a few years.

  • I went to one on Kings Road that was pretty cheap.

    In the vortex that is World's End.

  • If you can come into The West End I can do you a basic checkup for £50

  • I will do the full works for £15, I have my own equipment and just need a 13 amp socket and a hose pipe.

  • I really need a checkup, but I haven't been to the dentist for ages and I'm worried about what would be found, so I just ignore it like any big problem, until it hopefully goes away or all my teeth fall out.

  • This what i've been doing , im hoping its just this slight flu i have is causing pressure on the tooth but i doubt it.
    I manged to get anointment next thursday
    Hopefully it will be gone by then.

  • John Mack [|³|MA3K] on this forum is a pretty good Dentist. PM me for his number.

  • Hahaha. Darkness.

  • Where you at? There's a dentist at Clapham South that takes NHS patients and only charges 16 notes for a check-up.

    CS Spence
    19 Balham Hill
    SW12 9DY
    020 8673 3250


  • On the first day at University, many moons ago, a mate of mine fell out of his window and smashed some teeth out. Another friend grabbed them, got him to the dentist and had to hold one in place while some stitching was done - on the first day they ever met. Good chap.

    What I mean is, they will register new NHS patients - at least they did last time I checked.

  • A close friend of mine was a bit skint and had a bad tooth ache, I know this sounds like an urban myth but I promise it's true. So she drank a bottle of whiskey, went to her garage , got a pair of pliers and pulled out the bad tooth herself! Fuck, there is no way I could do that no matter how bad the pain.

  • well that was a bit silly. whatever happened to door-handle and string?

  • I'm on just over a decade since I last saw a dentist. So if anyone has a recommendation for a cracking good dentist who isn't so drill-friendly, then I'd be so grateful.
    Fear. Fear is a terrible thing.

  • Addie, are you of the spitalfields locality (you are, aren't you? or are you? For some reason I think you live east...hmmm) this place on Bethnal Green Road http://www.nhs.uk/ServiceDirectories/Pag­es/Dentist.aspx?oid=de_QAW00010&pid=0000­01_E20AA (I hope that link works) is rather good. Taking on new NHS patients, hasn't done me a filling in the two years I've been there despite the fact that I probably do need at least one. So not very drill happy.

    East: yes.
    Drillus minimus: fantastico!
    NHS newbies: even greater.

    Also, what's current dentistry decorum? Does one first see a hygienist, or use the 'go straight to the dentist' card? Or is that hygiene bit only for private folks?

    Well re: hygienists, the NHS doesn't really use them anymore, since all they do is advise on oral hygiene and do the scale and polish. Dentists themselves are encouraged to do all this now instead. So just go straight to the dentist and he will look in your mouth, innit. :-O

  • When I were a lad I went to the family dentist, as was the style at the time. However, little did I/we know that he was actually a massive crook doling out crap treatment and swindling the NHS (see links).

    Well, his crap work (he gave me shit loads of terrible fillings when it turns out I only ever need one) started to go wrong about 3 or 4 years ago and I got some of it sorted then by a decent dentist costing me £200.

    However, it's all started to go completely tits up and I now need a heap of work and that's going to cost just shy of £2,000. I could get it done NHS but it would be very good quality materials and would need redone a lot sooner, plus I'd end up like this guy.

    I'm very annoyed.

  • P.S. I don't have £2,000

  • arrest him... its your job

  • Harsh, take a holiday to turkey and get it sorted.

    I had two teeth pulled out by mistake by a student/youngish dentist. I was left with a gap for most of my childhood which slowly close up by the teeth around it. When the new tooth finally began to grow there obviously wasnt room, and I ASKED for braces, they said it would be totally unecessary. But just as I obviously thought, the tooth grew twisted because there wasnt any room. Got damn bent up teeth now!

  • If you can get written advice that the work needs urgent attention from an NHS dentist then after work is completed privately you would ahve a reasonable case to claim at least a portion of the costs back on the basis of continuation of liability.

    The written advice should also detail consequeces of failure to take urgent action.

  • stevo, i also need a few thousand quids worth of dental work done. my sister recently went to a dental clinic in Slovakia, run by an english guy.
    she was very happy with the work ( porcelain veneers) and i am considering going out there myself.

    the prices are about 25 % of english prices.

    pm me if you would like details.

  • You'll also get a nice beer while you wait!

    I went to this place in Rishikesh, India for a check up and clean (£2.50) - met loads of people having serious work done, very cheap, very clean and very professional.
