Straight talk

The Clear Aligners process begins with a thorough examination and consultation. If you are a good candidate, the dentist will take impressions of your mouth. These impressions are then sent to the USA where specialised computer software uses those impressions to design your individualised treatment plan. This treatment includes a series of aligner trays that gradually reposition your teeth with gentle force. Your dentist will show you a virtual transformation on a computer screen before beginning treatment.

Beautiful benefits

  • Clear – Aligners are transparent. Most people won’t realise you are wearing them.
  • Comfortable – Trays are made of smooth plastic that fits snugly. There are no wire tightening appointments.
  • Removable – Take aligners out to eat the foods you love. Breath stays fresh and teeth sparkling clean with normal brushing and flossing, and regular professional cleanings at Smile in Style.
  • Easy care – With just a few simple steps each day, aligners stay clean and clear. Our hygiene team provides instructions.
  • Inspiring – There is no waiting for an “unveiling” at completion of treatment. You get to enjoy results real-time, as your smile changes.
  • Convenient – Check-up appointments, about every six weeks, are brief. The dentist monitors your progress and adjusts the treatment plan if needed.
  • Efficient – You wear a set of aligners for about two weeks before progressing to the next set. Each case is unique, but with good compliance (wearing aligners 20 to 22 hours per day), most treatment plans are completed in about 12 months.

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.
