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!

Frequently asked questions about Fixed Braces

Will my speech be affected with fixed braces?

Fixed braces won’t affect your speech. Like anything, you may find that you have to get used to the new sensation of having braces on your teeth, but your speech won’t be affected.

How long does treatment take for fixed braces?

Each patient is different, and this will depend upon how severe your case is. Most patients find that their treatment is completed in approximately 12 to 18 months.

Do fixed braces hurt?

You may notice some pressure on your teeth after the initial fitting and it may take a bit of getting used to and after the first few days you should not experience any problems. You may want to take painkillers in the first few days and consider eating softer foods whilst you get used to your new fixed braces.

What happens if my braces break?

Occasionally with fixed braces you may experience a broken wire or bracket. If this happens or you notice that a wire is giving you discomfort, contact us as soon as possible so that we can arrange for you to come into the surgery to get it repaired.
