NHS treatments are often limited in their range. During private treatment materials of a higher quality are used to produce a higher quality denture or crown which provides a better fit and aesthetic.
Due to the NHS guidelines we can only treat children under the age of 12 years using simple sedation (gas and air) on the NHS. We offer sedation (intravenous) for patients over the age of 12 years, there is a band 2 NHS charge unless the patient is exempt from dental charges. We can offer advanced sedation for patients under 12 years and adults on a private basis. Because of the way the NHS sedation fees are structured, private sedition’s can carry on much longer and more work can be accomplished during a visit.
