Why do patients prefer clear aligners?

Clear aligner is an advanced orthodontic system that utilizes transparent, flexible aligners rather than traditional metal brackets and wires. In most situations, Clear aligner treatment can achieve results comparable to those of standard braces, in about the same timeframe.
 
There are many benefits to this innovative type of orthodontic treatment, including:

  • Aligners are nearly invisible when worn, so your smile doesn’t look like a train track
  • There are no dietary restrictions because aligners are removed during meals
  • Oral hygiene is easy with no brackets or wires to clean around
  • Ultrathin, custom-shaped aligner trays are lightweight and comfortable to wear.

The average price of a Clear aligner is generally similar to that of brackets and wires. However, orthodontic treatment is highly individualized. For any type of treatment, the price will vary from one patient to the next. The same is true of effectiveness. The only way to find out if one type of treatment would be less expensive or more effective in your specific situation is to have a consultation with a qualified provider.

Safe Amalgam Removal Protocol

  • Chlorella drink prior is given prior to treatment and a mouth rinse post-treatment. Chlorella can help bind and prevent mercury absorption.
  • Physical protective barriers - Masks, protective coverings, eyewear, in-mouth non-latex dental dams, and other steps are taken to prevent physical contact with mercury for the patient and staff.
  • Oral evacuation - Generous amounts of water are used to continuously rinse particulate matter from the mouth while suctioning it away. Combined with protective dental dams, this prevents patients from swallowing dental amalgam particles during treatment. Additionally, the rinsing helps lower the temperature of the filling, reducing the amount of mercury vapour released.
  • External air - A continuous supply of non-contaminated air or oxygen is delivered via a mask or similar apparatus, preventing inhalation of mercury vapour or particles.
  • "Chunk it out" method - Rather than using a drill to grind the filling down, it is carefully removed in the largest possible pieces, minimising friction, vaporisation.
  • High Volume Evacuation Suction is used by the dental assistant to remove amalgam particles in the mouth.
  • High Volume Air suction and Air Purifiers are used in the clinical room that is able to remove mercury vapour from the room.
  • Amalgam separator use - This device collects mercury-contaminated waste before it can enter the sewage system, allowing us to dispose of it safely.
