> Treatments


At Duston Dental Practice, we offer the full range of NHS dental treatments. NHS dental care exists to maintain the oral health of the population and eliminate the presence of dental disease. For you, this may mean regular check ups at intervals specific to your individual needs, fillings, treatment of gum disease or the fitting of crowns and bridges, amongst other things.

NHS dental care is arranged into 3 bands of treatment, each of which has a set fee.

Band 1 treatment: - This charge includes an examination, diagnosis and preventive advice. If necessary, it also includes X-rays, scaling and planning for further treatment.

Band 2 treatment: - This charge includes all the necessary treatment covered by the band 1 charge, plus additional treatment, such as fillings, root canal treatment, treatment of gum disease or extractions

Band 3 treatment: - This charge includes all the necessary treatment that is covered by the band 1 and 2 charges, plus more complex procedures, such as crowns, dentures and bridges.
