NHS let down

I have gum disease and was told this by an NHS dentist about eight years ago and some of my teeth are loose and I find it very hard to eat and have a lot of pain. I visited an NHS dentist last year I paid for a check up and the dentist confirmed again I had gum disease and it was bad but I was not offered any treatment I was not offered a clean the dentist asked me to make another check up appointment after asking me three times if I was depressed and I answers no the three times I was asked but before I made the appointment I let the dentist know I was anxious about going to the dentist. I haven't got the money to be making check up after check up is this normal procedure for the NHS???
