An inflation-busting hike in dentistry fees mean NHS patients in England will pay an extra £1.10 for a routine check-up.
The new charges will also see the cost of a set of dentures rise by £12.80 to nearly £270.
But the Government said the revised charges were important to help keep services sustainable.
The new charges are:
Band 1 treatment (examination, X-rays and scale and polish) £22.70
Band 2 treatment (fillings and root canal work) £62.10
Band 3 treatment (crowns, dentures and bridges) £269.30
