Dental Treatment and COVID-19

Dear Patients,

On 25th March 2020 Sara Hurley (Chief Dental Officer England) and Matt Neligan (Director of Primary Care and System transformation) released their latest statement on the rapidly developing COVID-19 pandemic.

We would like to update you on how this will affect our service provision at Dentalcare Group. The guidance is clear that all routine, non-urgent dental care, including orthodontic treatments must be deferred until advised otherwise. We are still here to support you and your dental needs through this unprecedented time.

We want to take this opportunity to reassure all our patients that we take the spread of the COVID-19 in the UK very seriously. The health and safety of our patients, staff and visitors to our dental practice is our main priority.

Here at Dentalcare Group we will be providing all our patients with a remote service during normal working hours. Our dentists will perform telephone triaging for: advice; analgesia; and antimicrobials (if appropriate) . We will not be able to see you at the practice.

If it is not possible to manage your symptoms remotely, you will have to be referred to a Local Urgent Dental Care Centre. Details of these are currently being established in our area and we will update you as soon as we have further information.

We will use our best professional judgement in the triaging process and work collaboratively with our Local Urgent Care system, possibly volunteering our expertise where necessary to help meet the demands imposed on this new emergency service.

Stay safe.

Fixed Braces to straighten teeth in Langley

If you have crooked, crowded, protruding or gappy teeth, they can be corrected using different types of dental braces.

Fixed braces are attached to your teeth using clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires which makes them very discreet.

As their name suggests, these braces are fixed to your teeth and cannot be removed until the end of your treatment.

Benefits of Fixed Bracesin Langley

There are several benefits in having fixed braces straighten your teeth at Trowbridge:

 

  • Fixed braces can be used to treat practically all orthodontic cases ranging from mild to extremely severe

  • Fixed braces use clear brackets and tooth-coloured wire, so they are extremely discreet
  • Our fixed braces are affordable. We offer interest free finance, plus we work with you to budget payments
  • Our consultation and personal approach will determine the type of treatment you need and for how long

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.
