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.

Get beautiful, straight teeth with Invisalign

You no longer need to put up with crooked, protruding or overlapping teeth. Advances in technology have revolutionised dental braces so that they are now more discreet, fit in around your lifestyle and work quicker than ever before.

Invisalign braces are made from thin, clear plastic so that they straighten your teeth invisibly. They sit over the top of your teeth and can be removed when you eat, drink and have a special occasion. Unlike fixed braces which stay fixed on to your teeth for the duration of your treatment, you remove these braces to brush your teeth and so you can maintain good oral hygiene.

At Dentalcare Trowbridge, your teeth will be photographed, X-rayed and 3D images will be taken using a special scanner. This will help to make-up your Invisalign treatment. Based on these 3D images, a series of clear aligners will be custom-made for you which you change on a weekly basis, allowing for the gradual movement in your teeth. Invisalign braces are perhaps the only form of dental braces that allows you to see upfront, how your teeth will change on a week by week basis and gives you an indication on how long it will take to straighten your teeth.

Frequently asked questions about Invisalign

How much do Invisalign braces cost?

This varies according to each patient and will depend upon things like whether you have your upper and lower jaw treated. On average, for the upper and lower jaw, Invisalign braces will cost about £3,500. You dentist can give you a much more accurate cost at your consultation. We offer finance plans and 0% interest options to help you to manage the cost.

How long will it take to straighten my teeth with Invisalign braces?

Each patient is different, and your dentist will need to examine your teeth and mouth to help answer this question. The beauty of Invisalign braces is that your planned treatment is shown upfront and will show in 3D images how your teeth will change week by week using the clear aligners. This gives an indication on the entire length of the treatment.

How are Invisalign Braces different to fixed braces?

Fixed braces remain on your teeth for the duration of your treatment using brackets and wires. With Invisalign there are no brackets and wires – instead the braces are made of clear plastic which sits over the top of your teeth. You take them out to eat, drink and brush your teeth. In this way Invisalign braces are more discreet than fixed braces and they are less disruptive to your lifestyle. For many patients, Invisalign braces tends to have a faster treatment time – often taking months to complete whereas fixed braces usually take at least 12 months.
