the GOD DAMN NHS
5 years ago my dentist decided that there was more money going private, so like the greedy little swine he is he did it. obviously a 4 bedroom house and a jaguar wasn't enough for him. so i had the choice, pay extortionate prices OR have no dentist. i wasn't in a position to choose so i ended up with no dentist.
2 years ago, one of my partially through wisdom teeth had rotted inside my gum where no ammount of brushing could have prevented and it basically crumbled. the pain was worse than than anything i have ever felt. i searched in vain for an NHS dentist but non of them would accept any new patients so i was left in agony. eventually my mum fronted £250 for a private dentist to pull it out
now another two of my wisdom teeth have suffered the same fate last christmas, ive been in agony since december on and off, been living on pain killers. in january my missus managed to get me in at her NHS dentist as she got our son in too. but guess what, in JANUARY! they said they couldnt see me till may. WTF? so i waits, in agony for about 2 of 7 days a week, and i go to see him.
he sits me in his chair, has a look, does some x-rays and says that he cant do it on the NHS, but will give me prices of basically the same as NHS prices, which is no good, ive got a bloody exemption card for the NHS so i dont have to pay for anything at all, so why cant i bloody get it? Hmmm? so now i need to find £300 to have two teeth out that have been giving me grief for half a god damn year.... what the hell is the point of the NHS? why have i been in agony for 6 months when i have a card that gives me FREE dental care?
oh one more rant
WTF IS THE POINT IN WISDOM TEETH??????
