NHS Dentist will provide you with clinically necessary oral hygiene treatment on the NHS.
All periodontal treatment required for the health of your gums will always be provided on the NHS at this practice. You will never be expected to pay privately for clinically necessary treatment
There are those patients who have more serious periodontal problems. The dentist can then refer the patient to the hygienist with a view to performing a longer periodontal treatment, known as a prolonged period or ’10C’. This consists of two further appointments. This is available on the NHS.
Treatment consists of removing plaque and tartar from the teeth, cleaning out the pockets between the teeth and the gums and polishing the teeth.
