More than just a simple NHS dentist in Oxford

Gone are the days when dentistry was just concerned with making sure you didn’t suffer from decay or gum disease, removing failing teeth and fixing infections. Of course, these are still the cornerstone treatments that ensure good oral health, but there is so much more on offer. The problem is that only a limited number of treatments, those strictly delineated by the NHS designed to keep people free from pain and with teeth that work, are available at reduced prices.

NHS dentist in Oxford providing affordable treatments

With the constant news about the lack of public funding and austerity measures, you’d be forgiven for believing you couldn’t receive dental treatment on the NHS. Actually, the opposite is true; anyone is entitled to NHS dental care, saving you money and making caring for your oral health affordable. At Studental, an up-to-date, modern NHS dentist in Oxford, we offer services to students and local residents alike. Since not all treatments are available on the NHS, it is good to have more information on what is included. Here is a quick glance guide on what you need to know about NHS dental care. What treatments are allowed on the NHS? All aspects of preventive treatment, including 6-monthly hygiene appointments, are available on the NHS. Ensuring you receive everyday dental services is essential for long-term oral health. Your NHS dentist in Oxford will professionally descale your teeth, check your gums for inflammation and treat any issues that are arising. They will also check for decay; if you require a filling, this is covered by the NHS. Cosmetic fillings such as tooth-coloured or ‘white’ fillings are not covered. If you need more invasive procedures such as root canals, this is allowable, as is any restorative treatment of teeth that would be otherwise lost. If you want cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening, veneers and other types of treatments that adjust the aesthetic of your smile, the NHS will not cover this. If you would like these treatments, we do offer a range of financial services that may help you access them with affordable payment plans. How NHS dental costs are charged...
