This covers an examination, diagnosis, advice on how to prevent future problems, x-Rays and a simple scale and polish if clinically necessary.
Band 2 course of treatment:
This covers everything listed in Band 1, plus other treatment such as fillings, root canal work if it is necessary to maintain oral health and extractions of one or more teeth.
Band 3 course of treatment:
This includes everything listed in Bands 1 and 2, plus crowns, dentures or bridges that may be necessary to maintain oral health.
