Private dental care in the UK is some of the most expensive in the world, with many British citizens relying on state-subsidised dental care. But what happens when you simply cannot get the treatment you need from the NHS? Over one million Britons struggle to get an NHS dentist appointment, according to The Independent, and this number looks set to keep growing.

Patients who have damaged pulp within their tooth are likely to be in considerable pain, so quick and effective dental care is essential. You do not have to settle for the high prices set by private UK dentists; instead, you can choose to

have a root canal in Hungary and save hundreds of pounds.

What Makes Hungary Such a Great Dental Tourism Destination?

Modern dental clinics, highly-trained dentists, and affordable treatment prices are three of the top reasons why Hungary stands out as a top dental tourism destination. Journalist Sasha Issenberg explores more of the reasons why the country has become renown for dentistry in her feature titled, “ Hungary: World Capital of Dentistry ,” published in The Atlantic magazine. Hungary has a long history of international dental tourism, beginning with Austrian and German patients travelling overland to have their teeth treated for less than at home.

With low-cost airlines connecting every corner of Europe, getting to Hungary has become easier for the entire continent now, so patients come from further than just neighbouring countries. Direct flights from London to the Hungarian capital of Budapest take just under two and a half hours. The same can be said of many other international airports in the United Kingdom. Once in Hungary, the price of hotel rooms, restaurant meals, and taxi fares are noticeably cheaper than in the UK too.

How Root Canal Treatment Saves Your Tooth

Root canal treatment helps to maintain good dental health because your tooth will be saved from being extracted. When decay reaches the pulp of your tooth, or the pulp is damaged due to a hard impact, that pulp needs to be removed. Otherwise, infection is likely to set in and a dental abscess can also develop. Some people decide to have the offending tooth extracted instead of having a root canal filling, but this leaves a gap in your dental structure and can lead to further oral health issues. Most dentists will advise it’s best to save the tooth if possible.

With a root canal filling, the structure of your tooth is kept intact. Although will not have any sensitivity in the tooth because it is dead, it is functional just like your other teeth. Over time your root canal-treated tooth is likely to become weaker and slightly darker in appearance. You will have the option to strengthen your dead tooth with a dental crown , either straight after your root canal treatment either at some stage in the future.

How Much You Could Save on Dental Work in Hungary

To begin, let’s look at the root canal cost in Hungary compared to the UK price. Visit a British dentist and you can expect to pay around £625 to have root canal treatment on an anterior tooth, whereas at a Hungarian dental clinic the price drops to roughly £96. A root canal filling for a molar often costs in the region of £1,000 at UK dental clinics, but Hungarian dentists charge on average just £163 for this type of treatment.

It is not just root canal treatment that can save you money: everything from fillings and teeth cleaning to crowns and implants are cheaper in Hungary. Tens of thousands of British patients have already saved 70% off their dental bill by visiting a dentist in Hungary rather than one at home. You can do the same.
