When considering travelling to Hungary for dental treatments, some Hungarian dentists will offer an x-ray facility in the UK, so an approximate treatment-and price plan can be established. Seeing your estimated costs and getting familiar with possible treatment types will help you planning and putting your mind at ease.
Sometimes a full panoramic x-ray is not quite enough to see if you can have implants and a personal examination is needed or other diagnostic tools. But x-rays could pick up on those, who are in risk of fractures according to the article published in Private Health (http://www.privatehealth.co.uk/news/december-2011/dental-x-rays-risk-of-fractures-36299/).
“New research from the Sahlgrenska Academy found that the bone structure of the lower jaw was associated with a person’s vulnerability to the breaks.
“We’ve seen that sparse bone structure in the lower jaw in mid-life is directly linked to the risk of fractures in other parts of the body, later in life,” stated Lauren Lissner, a researcher at the Institute of Medicine at the Sahlgrenska Academy.”
Most of us are aware of the importance of regular dental check-ups, not only to spot potential oral problems, but also to prevent other health issues, like heart disease, diabetes and so on…. Using the x-ray scan is most often part of this procedure.
Reading the Daily Mail just few days ago I came across this article Grandfather stunned when dental X-ray shows pellet that was shot into his jaw when he was TEN

It is about a middle aged man, who went to the local hospital for a dental check-up and the x-ray showed a pallet he knew nothing about, only thinking it though he realised what could’ve happened.
Regular dental check-ups are very important to prevent further problems, but once you have them they need to be treated. Ignorance is the worst thing and painkillers will just disguise the real cause.
If you can not afford dental prices in your own country, look into alternative solutions. Travelling for dental treatments could be a good way of saving money. Please, check out our website on Hungarian Dental Travel- for more information.
