If an existing part of a denture (e.g. a clasp, a tooth, a flange, etc) is broken and is then replaced or repaired, it is a 'Repair of a denture' and is free of charge to the patient irrespective of the charge paying status. There is no time restriction with regards to how long after the original appliance was made for a repair to the denture be provided.

If the open Course of Treatment (CoT) is a Band 3, the denture repair would be expected to be claimed as part of this Band 3 CoT. However, a separate claim for denture repair could be made where there is already an open Band 1 or Band 2 CoT.
