Dental Procedures available on the NHS

Posted 27 January 2015 in News

Nhs Treatment

Any dental treatment that is deemed clinically necessary by your dentist to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy and free from pain is available on the NHS. This includes:

  • Dentures
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Root canal treatment
  • Scale and polish (provided by the dental hygienist)
  • Fillings (including white fillings)
  • Wisdom teeth
  • Dental abscesses
  • Orthodontic treatment for people under the age of 18

Any treatment available on the NHS should not be refused by your dentist and then offered to private clients only and a reputable dentist should not charge you a private rate if you clinically need a dental treatment that is readily available on the NHS.

There is no difference in quality of service and treatment. A treatment on the NHS is identical to a private treatment. When discussing your treatment needs with a dentist they will advise if the treatment is clinically necessary and available on the NHS. Sometimes you may opt for additional dental treatments privately based on any none-clinical requirements. For example, teeth whitening is not available on the NHS but you may decide that it is a treatment you want to have in order to enhance the appearance of your teeth.

Simple Pricing

There are 3 bands of prices for NHS dental treatment based on the complexity of the treatment required. The pricing is very simple and you only pay one charge for each course of treatment. This means that if your treatment covers more than one session or you need additional treatment within two months of the original treatment, you only pay once as longs as the additional treatment falls within the same charge band.

Some people may be legible for free or subsidised dental treatment such as under 18s, expectant and nursing mothers, students, and patients on certain benefits.

To find out more about NHS treatments, the price bands and your legibility for subsidised or free treatment then please contact Bhandal Dentists now, your trusted NHS dentists.

Wisdom tooth removal.

I had my lower wisdom tooth removed. To say that I was a nervous patient was an understatement. The dentist was very understanding and explained the process in stages where I could ask questions. Even though I was really panicking inside the staff had a true sense of calm and the tooth removal was quick and uneventful. I originally wanted sedation but felt confident to go without. The aftercare information was very useful. I experienced a first class service here!
