Document What band of treatment is the removal, addition, repair or replacement of a clasp?

Removal

If the clasp is being removed from a non-orthodontic appliance then it would be appropriate to claim an urgent Course of Treatment (CoT), unless a full comprehensive examination has also been provided in which case it would be part of a band 1 CoT.

If the clasps are being removed and the appliance was recently made, then this removal would be considered part of the original course and would therefore not generate a further patient charge.
 

Addition

If the clasp is being added to a non-orthodontic appliance then it would be band 4 (urgent) unless a full comprehensive examination has also been provided in which case it would be part of a band 2 CoT.
 

Repair / Replacement

If an existing denture has a clasp which is being replaced, it would be appropriate as a charge exempt item (free denture repair).

If the denture had only been provided recently, then a further claim wouldn't be considered appropriate as the alteration would be considered to be part of the original treatment.
