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!

Aesthetic Fixed Braces

Aesthetic Fixed Braces to straighten teeth in Swindon

Fixed clear braces are attached to the teeth by using brackets and wires. As their name suggests, they are fixed on to the teeth and cannot be removed until the end of treatment.

Despite recent innovations with dental braces in recent years and the introduction of clear and removable braces, fixed braces continue to be popular and we continue to offer them because:

  • This dental brace straightens teeth in a very precise manner which often cannot be accomplished using the more modern braces
  • Fixed braces are very versatile and can be used to fix mild teeth straightening cases through to the most severe
  • Fixed braces can space out crowded teeth, straighten crooked teeth, close gaps in your teeth and fix different bite problems including overbite, underbite, open or cross bite

For more information, book a free patient assessment with our Patient Coordinator, or you can book a consultation with the Orthodontist for £75.

Frequently asked questions about Aesthetic Fixed Braces

Do fixed braces hurt?

Fixed braces don’t hurt, but like anything new, they do take some getting used to. You may experience some pressure on your teeth to begin with and this is completely normal. You can take paracetamol if you experience discomfort and try eating soft food whilst you adjust. After the first few days, wearing your braces will become natural.

Do I still need to visit my Orthodontist whilst I’m wearing braces?

Yes, and it’s important that you do this. Your Orthodontist will need to check that your teeth are being kept clean and that you are maintaining a good oral hygiene whilst you are wearing your braces. If your teeth are not kept in top condition, then this can affect your treatment.

How old do you have to be to wear braces and is there an age limit?

We generally recommend that children wait until all of their adult teeth are through before beginning treatment for fixed braces, but your Orthodontist will be able to advise you on this. Adults can wear fixed braces at any age and there is no limit as to when you can start treatment!
