Invisalign® is a game-changer in the field of orthodontic treatment. Previously, many patients shied away from seeking solutions to crooked teeth or a poor bite, due to concerns about how they might look wearing a set of traditional braces.
Now, these issues can be treated without the use of braces. Invisalign® utilises a system of removable aligners made of a clear, plastic material. The aligners apply gentle pressure to the teeth, encouraging them to move into a more optimal position.
Invisalign® aligners are almost totally invisible, eliminating any worries patients may have about their social or professional image. Not only are they incredibly discreet, but they are also much kinder on the soft tissues in your mouth.
First, you will undergo a thorough assessment of your teeth and jaw, including x-rays and advanced 3D scans. The data from these scans is used to formulate your comprehensive treatment plan and produce your set of Invisalign® aligners.
Once your aligners are ready, you will wear the first one for 20-22 hours a day, removing it only to eat, brush and floss. After 2 weeks, you will change to the next aligner and repeat the process. Your dentist will see you every 1-2 months throughout your treatment to monitor your progress.
After your treatment is over, you will wear a retainer to prevent your teeth from relapsing to their original position. Retainers can be removable or fixed and as discreet as the Invisalign® system.
Dental Practices across the UK were allowed to open their doors to patients on the 8th June and we are pleased to announce The Rightwell East Dental Practice is open to offer a limited range of dental treatments.
The treatments available depend on the official advice of the Government and Chief Dental Officer for England.
Prioritising patients in need
The Rightwell East Dental practice is open to see patients, however, due to strict social distancing protocols and limitations of PPE, we are only able to see emergency patients who have been phone triaged by our team. People in the greatest need of seeing a dentist will be seen first and we will prioritise all emergency appointments before any routine appointments are made.
Please do not visit the practice without a pre-arranged appointment, as you will not be seen. In the interest of safety to our staff and other patients, only patients that have been triaged on the telephone will be offered an appointment to attend the practice.
If you have a routine appointment scheduled at the practice in the future please call us on 01733 333990 prior to attending as this may have to be rescheduled in line with government guidance.
Speak to us if you need support
Please continue to call us for advice about any dental issues. Our teams are always available to offer you support by phone and will advise when you may be able to be seen if you are in pain.
Protective measures in practice
Our first priority is always the wellbeing of our patients and colleagues. We have made some changes in our practices to ensure your safety. Our reception team will explain these to you when the appointment is made.
