Document What band of treatment is a scale and polish?

A scale and polish is a Band 1 treatment, even if more than one visit is required.

As with any Band 1 claim, an examination and an assessment of the patient's oral health, and completion of any planned treatment, that the patient is willing to undergo, is a requirement.

A scale and polish would be appropriate for BPE (British Society of Periodontology) scores of 2, or for periodontal maintenance (as opposed to treatment) where periodontal disease is stabilised.
