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.

We would like to thank you for your support and cooperation in the interest of our patient’s health and safety. We will closely monitor this situation and will update all patients accordingly.

Stay safe.
Kind Regards,
Dentalcare Group Team

Smilelign Braces

at Dentalcare Trowbridge

Straighten teeth with Smilelign in Trowbridge

Smilelign is another form of clear braces which straighten teeth discreetly because they are practically invisible. There are no brackets or wires with these braces, instead they sit over the top of your teeth.

Patients love the fact that these braces are comfortable to wear and don’t interrupt their lifestyle. You can continue to live your life as usual.

With Smilelign you will be given a series of custom-made clear braces which you change on a regular basis to accommodate the gradual movement in your teeth. Most patients find that their treatment is completed in a matter of months.

These clear braces are removable; you take them out to eat, drink and to brush your teeth. You must make sure that you keep your teeth clean and ensure that you brush your aligners to keep them clean.

Frequently asked questions about the Smilelign Braces

Why do you need to change braces?

Each aligner is designed to fit and straighten your teeth at specific stages of your treatment. Once you have worn them for the specified time, you simply move on to the next aligner in your plan.

Will Smilelign work for me?

Smilelign will work for most cases, your dentist will give you an initial assessment to determine how complex your orthodontic case is and whether you are eligible. You will also need to be very compliant with these braces and only take them out to eat and drink.

Can I eat and drink with my braces in?

No. Only water can be drunk with your braces in. If you eat with your braces in, you are likely to break the plastic through chewing. Food and drink can also get trapped under your braces which not only looks unsightly but can lead to decay or erosion of the enamel on your teeth. Hot drinks like tea and coffee can damage the plastic of the braces and can also lead to heavy staining of your teeth as the liquid gets trapped under your braces. Please remove your Smilelign braces to eat and drink anything other than water.
