NHS costs If you are looking for an NHS dentist in Oxford, then it is important to be well informed on the costs and processes that the NHS follows. If you are a student at university, then it is likely that you will still have to pay some form of charge, however it will be considerably less than what you would normally have to pay under private treatment. It is a misconception that dentistry is simply free under the NHS, as other healthcare often is, so it is important to know what your dentistry may cost before proceeding, to avoid any surprises. If you are concerned or unsure, then please contact us, or research online. There are three bands that your treatment will fit into, and each one will carry a certain payment with it. Due to the nature of the NHS, you will not need to pay for each individual treatment if more than...
Preventive dentistry is an extremely important aspect of dentistry, as many issues can be avoided with a good dental hygiene. Cavities are one of the main problems in dentistry and can cause a litany of issues, such as tooth decay, an infected pulp and subsequently tooth loss. This can result in abscesses too, which can be extremely painful. Therefore, if a strict dental hygiene is kept, many of these issues can be avoided entirely. Studental is right in the heart of Oxford Brookes campus, and offers a range of dental services, both under the NHS and privately. If you are looking for an NHS dentist in Oxford, then we will be able to help and to provide you with all the assistance you might need. Dental hygiene Good dental hygiene can be kept by brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. Correct brushing techniques are also part of a good dental hygiene regime. If you are unsure on what the correct brushing technique is, then please ask one of our dentists for some advice, and they will be happy to help. Dentistry is all about helping patients live their best quality of life, so it is our job to prevent as many dental problems as possible. Cosmetic cleaning Every now and then, it is a good idea to have your teeth professionally cleaned to ensure that as much plaque and bacteria has been removed as possible. While regular brushing and flossing is effective at reducing cavities, for some people a small amount of plaque and bacteria can remain, depending on the arrangement of their teeth, and if...
Sometimes, dentistry can be needed very suddenly, and booking an appointment a week in advance may be out of the question. If you need to see a dentist immediately, then many dentists, such as Studental, will have an emergency dental department. We understand that it can be an extremely stressful and daunting experience, so we want to approach it as warmly and kindly as possible, and make sure that you feel relaxed and reassured by our services. If you need an NHS dentist in Oxford, then we will also be able to provide this. Is emergency dental care covered by the NHS? Emergency dental care is covered by the NHS, but it will still have a cost. An emergency dentistry appointment will cost the same as a Band 1 appointment and may cost extra if you need any further treatment. However, if you need extra treatment then it will be part of the extra band treatment, so you will not have to pay extra for the consultation. If you are looking for an NHS dentist in Oxford, then we offer many NHS treatments, as well as private, so the choice is yours. What counts as ‘emergency’ dentistry? Emergency can be a relative term when it comes to dentistry, as no dentistry is life-threatening. However, if you are in extreme pain, or you have damaged or lost a tooth, then we consider that emergency dentistry, as you will need to see a dentist the same day as your call. We will make it our number one priority to see you on the day that you call. If we can’t solve...
We would like to inform you that due to the COVID-19 outbreak we are currently unable to work as normal following the latest government guidelines.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly but we feel it is our responsibility to protect you, our valued patients, our team and our families. We have taken the difficult decision to cancel all routine exams, treatments and hygiene appointments.
Please do not arrive at the practice unannounced.
We will be maintaining a telephone service for advice and booking emergency appointments. Dental emergencies include:
Severe pain for over 48 hours
Trauma or uncontrolled bleeding
We understand this is inconvenient and it may mean the treatment timelines are extended. We will be able to reconvene normal service once it is safe to do so. If your appointment needs to be postponed, one of the team will be in touch.
Thank you for all your support during these uncertain times.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all soon.
