If it is not long after the denture or bridge has been fitted, this should be considered as part of the aftercare and therefore, part of the original Course of Treatment (CoT). The patient should not be charged and no additional UDA claimed for the adjustment.
If a patient attends with an existing appliance which requires adjustment, and no examination is provided, a Band 4 Urgent Treatment would be appropriate.
If a patient attends with an existing denture which requires adjustment and this is provided with an examination, this will form part of a Band 1 course of treatment, providing an examination and that all of the necessary treatment which the patient is willing to undergo has been provided.
However, denture relining will form part of a Band 2a course of treatment.
