NHS Clean provides the dental care you need to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy and pain-free. Scale and polish treatments with NHS dental care are only offered where clinically needed, and are usually performed by your NHS dentist rather than a hygienist.
NHS dental prices are fixed and within bands. NHS dental scale and polish treatments are covered within Band 1, which is currently charged as below:
England £21.60 & Wales £14.00 NHS band 1
This covers an examination, diagnosis (including X-rays), advice on how to prevent future problems, a scale and polish if clinically needed, and preventative care such as the application of fluoride varnish or fissure sealant if appropriate.
Please note that a different pricing structure operates under Health Service dentistry in Northern Ireland and the NHS in Scotland.
* Availability may be limited and NHS dental care may not always be available due to government contract restrictions. For availability at your local practice, please visit their practice pages.
