The price of perfect teeth hits people’s pockets

The recession has torn chunks out of elective dental procedures, since medical aids still remain resistant to recognising the importance of reconstructive dentistry, which generally includes a combination of medical and aesthetic processes.

While many patients can afford to wait for cosmetic treatments such as facelifts, breast augmentation or liposuction, dental care is usually a pressing issue.

Mandy Simon*, a young woman in her early 40s, had ground her teeth to the point where she needed a full set of crowns to preserve a fully functional mouth of teeth and to avoid further damage.

Her problems were severe. Her bite, muscles, teeth and bone structure needed repairing and the process of full mouth reconstruction required orthodontics, periodontics and prosthodontics, in order to ensure a durable, functional and clinically sound treatment that also looked natural.

The total cost was beyond her budget. Even in financial boom times, this is a large financial outlay and until recently, unthinkable for most people.

Faced with false teeth or a disfigured jaw structure, Simon found an instant solution to her pressing fiscal problem in the form of recognised financial health supplier First Health Finance (FHF), which has provided full finance for many similar three-dimensional restorations.
