What treatment can be provided at a dental domiciliary visit?
Scaling, simple fillings, simple extractions and the making of dentures can all be carried out using portable dental equipment.
There are some treatments that cannot be provided in a domiciliary visit because they are more complex or the equipment needed is not transportable. These include x-rays, surgical extractions and crown and bridge work. If these are required they may have to be provided in the dental surgery.
Sometimes it may be the best option to choose a simpler treatment plan that does not include these items. In other cases it may be possible for a patient to have the more complex treatment in the dental surgery and the simpler work carried out on a domiciliary visit.
