Dental Treatment and COVID-19

Following the announcement by the government on 28th May, we are incredibly pleased and excited to announce that we will be re-opening our practice soon!

At Dentalcare Group patient safety and comfort is of paramount importance, and we have spent the time during closure upgrading the clinic and introducing the following measures to keep our patients and staff SAFER than ever.

The clinic as you are aware has always been a very clean and safe environment. However, we have placed hand sanitisers at entry points, upgraded our PPE and redesigned the patient journey in line with social distancing.

We will be conducting pre-screening tests of patients which is likely to include taking your temperature on arrival.

We have had to cancel numerous appointments since the lockdown began 3 months ago and will initially be prioritising appointments for our existing patients who have had dental emergencies or appointments cancelled, in order of urgency. Please do not attend the clinic unless you have an appointment.

We thank you all for your patience during this difficult time and look forward to seeing you again soon!

We will be in touch as soon as we are ready to see you!

Get beautiful, straight teeth with Invisalign

Invisalign braces are a revolutionary form of dental braces. They are a series of clear plastic aligners which you change on a weekly basis and  gently move your teeth into the correct position.

Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign works by sitting over the top of your teeth and because of the special clear plastic material, most people cannot tell that you’re having your teeth straightened; they’re practically invisible braces! Patients also love the fact that these braces are removable so you can take them out to eat, drink and brush.

After your initial consultation, your teeth will be photographed and X-rayed and this will be used to form your Clincheck 3D treatment plan which shows week by week how your teeth will transform.

Your plastic aligners will be custom made for you and once these are ready you can wear them, changing them on a weekly basis until your treatment has finished. Your dentist will assess and monitor your treatment approximately every 6 to 8 weeks.

Frequently asked questions about Invisalign

How are Invisalign braces different to traditional braces?

Traditional braces are fixed on to your teeth meaning you can’t take them out for the duration of your treatment. Invisalign braces are removable but you shouldn’t take them out too frequently as they need to be worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day. Invisalign braces are also made of clear plastic so they are extremely discreet and can’t be seen on your teeth. Many patients find Invisalign braces comfortable to wear and are able to maintain a better oral hygiene as you take these braces out to brush your teeth.

Why do I need to wear a new aligner every week?

Your aligners are made before even begin to wear your clear braces and is based on how your teeth will move throughout the entire treatment. You need to keep changing your aligners as your teeth move.

Can I eat and drink with my Invsalign braces in?

No, the only thing you can drink with your aligners in is cold water. You must take your aligners out to eat and drink anything else or risk damaging the aligners or causing serious staining to your teeth.
