Sequential Aligners

Clear aligners are an option for some adults and children where the alignment of teeth needs to be corrected or addressed. In the initial consultation, we will jointly decide if aligner therapy is right for you or your child

Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, TLC Dental Winthrop’s chosen manufacturer carefully translates his instructions into a series of precisely customised aligners. You then wear each set of aligners as instructed, moving teeth gradually.

Generally, you visit us less than you would with braces; however, the length of treatment is about the same. There are no metal wires and brackets, and the aligners are removable for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.

Examples of sequential aligner brands are Invisalign®, Sure Smile®, Angelalign®, and many more.

We offer a wide range of common dentistry procedures.


Full and partial dentures are removable dental prosthetics used to replace missing teeth.

Full Dentures:

  • Full dentures are used when all natural teeth in the upper or lower jaw are missing.
  • They consist of a flesh-colored acrylic base that fits over the gums and holds the artificial teeth in place.
  • Full dentures can be held in position by suction, adhesive, or dental implants for better stability.
  • They provide functional chewing and restore facial aesthetics, enhancing the appearance of the smile.

Partial Dentures:

  • Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw.
  • They consist of a metal or acrylic framework with artificial teeth attached to fill the gaps.
  • Partial dentures are secured to the remaining teeth with clasps or precision attachments.
  • They improve chewing ability, prevent shifting of remaining teeth, and maintain facial structure.

Implant Retained Dentures:

  • Implant-retained dentures are a type of denture that is securely anchored to dental implants. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are surgically placed into the jawbone. The dentures are then attached to these implants using special attachments or snap-on mechanisms.
  • It’s essential to consult with one of our friendly dentists at TLC Dental to determine if implant-retained dentures are the right choice for you, as they require adequate bone support and a healthy mouth for successful placement.

Both full, partial and implant dentures are custom-made to fit the individual’s mouth, and with proper care, they can provide a cost-effective and efficient solution for missing teeth, improving overall oral function and aesthetics.


Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are surgically placed into the jawbone to support replacement teeth (crowns). They provide a sturdy and long-lasting foundation for dental restorations and can replace one or multiple missing teeth. After the implant integrates with the bone, a custom-made crown is attached to the implant, creating a natural-looking and fully functional tooth replacement. Dental implants restore the appearance, function, and confidence of a complete smile and are considered a highly successful and permanent solution for tooth loss.


& Sequential Aligners

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental and facial irregularities, with a primary focus on aligning teeth and jaws to improve function, appearance, and overall oral health.

At TLC Dental, the expert dentists will carefully evaluate your dental condition to determine whether you require orthodontic treatment.


- X-rays

Dental radiographs, also known as dental X-rays, are diagnostic images used by dentists to assess and monitor oral health. These digital images capture the internal structures of the teeth, bones, and surrounding tissues, providing valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Dental radiographs help detect dental issues such as cavities, gum disease, impacted teeth, and bone abnormalities. They aid in treatment planning and early detection of problems, leading to more effective and timely dental care. Digital dental X-rays release minimal radiation, similar to watching TV for a few hours, ensuring patient safety during the imaging process.

Professional scale

and clean or AirFlow®

Dental scale and clean, also known as dental cleaning or prophylaxis, is a routine preventive dental procedure performed by a dental hygienist or dentist. During the process, the dental professional removes plaque, tartar, and stains from the teeth and gums. Scaling involves scraping off the hardened plaque (tartar) from above and below the gumline, while polishing helps remove surface stains and smooth the teeth. Dental scale and clean help prevent gum disease, cavities, and bad breath, promoting overall oral health and a fresh, clean smile. It is recommended to have this procedure done every six months as part of regular dental check-ups.

At TLC Dental we offer the option of a conventional scale and clean or a scale and clean with AirFlow® technology.

AirFlow® technology is a dental cleaning method offered at TLC Dental. It uses a mixture of water, air, and fine powder to remove plaque, stains, and biofilm from teeth and gums. The AirFlow® device delivers a gentle and effective cleaning action, reaching areas that traditional scaling may miss. It is more comfortable than traditional methods, and the procedure is quicker, making it a popular choice for patients. AirFlow® technology leaves teeth feeling smooth, clean, and visibly brighter, contributing to better oral health and a fresh smile.
