Welcome back to Sherway Dentistry.

We're thrilled to share good news with you! We were given the go ahead by regulatory authorities allowing us to resume seeing patients at the office for all dental appointments. This includes fillings, crowns, hygiene, orthodontics, Invisalign, cosmetic procedures, dentures, etc.

We've made significant changes to how we manage patient flow and our office protocols for patient treatment - all with the sole purpose of ensuring you and your dental team remain safe by minimizing the risk of spreading the virus. These changes include physical barriers, allowing one person in the waiting room at a time, closed treatment rooms when required, air purifiers, enhanced PPE for patients and staff, and more.

There are new guidelines for patients as well. These include pre-screening before your appointment, hand hygiene, wearing a mask, and maintaining physical distancing. Details will be shared with you before your visit and also on our new COVID/Patient Safety page on our website.

We're excited about the changes to make your visit as safe and convenient as possible.

Our team is contacting all patients to reschedule missed appointments. If you need an appointment immediately, kindly contact the office at 416.639.2546, and we'll get you in as soon as possible. As you can imagine, we have a backlog of cancelled appointments from mid-March and your continued patience and understanding is truly appreciated as we get back and into a new routine at the clinic.


Thank-you for your patience, understanding, and words of support during the closure. We can't wait to see you again soon!

Sincerely,

Dr Tuli, Dr Pavelic, Dr Haroun, Cori, and the rest of the team at Sherway Dentistry

Caring for clear braces: Invisalign tips from Etobicoke dentists

posted by
Invisalign Clear Braces

Invisalign is a system of clear aligner trays that gently repositions teeth in about a year, without metal brackets or wires. How do you care for clear braces? Etobicoke dentists, Dr. Tuli and Dr. Pavelic from sherway dentistry explain.

Understanding aligners

The dentist starts with three dimensional images of your mouth. A computer program uses these digital impressions to create a series of aligners to move teeth. You wear each set for about two weeks, before progressing. Aligners are made of a smooth, clear plastic. You will want to keep them transparent and odor free during treatment. Since aligners are removable, it is easy!

Aligner cleaning DOs

  • Take aligners out before eating. Rinse them with cool or tepid water. Place aligners in their storage case (not in a dinner napkin where they might get thrown out by accident).
  • When cleaning the aligners at bedtime, remove and place on a clean towel. Rinse one arch, and brush it with clear, anti-bacterial hand soap and a soft toothbrush. Rinse again, place on the towel, and repeat with the other arch.
  • In the morning remove the aligners and clean them again. Brush and floss your teeth before reinserting.
  • Give aligners a periodic soak in retainer cleaner or Invisalign cleaning crystals, for extra sanitation and bacterial control.

Invisalign DON'Ts

  • Do not drink anything other than plain water while wearing aligners.
  • Don't smoke during treatment.
  • Do not rinse aligners with hot water – it could warp the plastic.
  • Do not use tinted soap which may stain.
  • Do not brush aligners with a stiff toothbrush, toothpaste, or abrasive cleanser. It will scratch the plastic, dulling transparency and leaving grooves that hold bacteria.
