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!

Incognito Braces

at Dentalcare Langley Orthodontics

Incognito Braces - an invisible way to straighten teeth

Incognito braces are often referred to as lingual, from lingua, the Latin word for tongue. These hidden braces are mainly used by private adult patients, due to the fact that they are concealed on the inside of the teeth. So they are a very discreet way of straightening your teeth without anyone knowing you’re having orthodontic treatment. This is a great choice for patients who have crooked teeth but have been put off the idea of wearing traditional braces due to the way it changes their appearance.

How does it work?

Incognito braces are similar in appearance to traditional braces, as they have brackets and wires, but their biggest advantage is they sit behind the teeth instead of in front of them. They mainly focus on the ‘social six’ teeth as they are the ones that are visible when you smile, and they gently apply pressure to push the teeth into position. Treatment time can vary depending on how complex your case is.

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 Incognito Braces

Will Incognito braces hurt?

Due to the braces being fitted behind the teeth, your tongue may get irritated or sore by them. This can be resolved by rubbing beeswax on the braces. For some people their speech might be altered a little, but this soon disappears the longer the brace is worn.

Am I suitable for Incognito braces?

These braces are suitable if you have mild to moderate severity of crowded teeth. To know for sure, please get in touch to find out if they are suitable
