Duration is 40 minutes and includes x-rays, discussion of treatment options, treatment planning, explanation of costs and report to referring dentist. If a dental CT scan is needed to plan endodontic treatment, then an additional £50 fee will be applied.
Temporary crowns or placement of a stainless steel band: It is sometimes necessary to stabilise cracked or broken down teeth prior to initialising treatment. This helps reduce the risk of tooth fracture until a definitive restoration is provided by the referring dentist.
Open and Investigate: It is not always possible to fully evaluate whether a tooth can be saved without opening and investigating it under powerful magnification. If a tooth is not deemed saveable then this fee applies. If the tooth is saveable then this fee will not be levied and root canal treatment or re-treatment will be initiated immediately.
Extra Visit: In a limited number of complex cases more than two visits may be required, if so, this fee is added.
