The daily said, KD 2 shall be paid for temporary filling and KD 5 for permanent filling. For children, KD 2 shall be charged for cleaning and treatment by using fl uoride and protective filling of each tooth, and KD 5 for permanent filling for each tooth. KD 10 shall be paid to treat the nerve of each tooth with the provision of metal crown and 5 dinars for the treatment of nerve for each tooth with a permanent filling.
