INVISALIGN DENTIST IN DOWNTOWN TORONTO

Invisalign dentist in downtown Toronto, Dr. Arash Ghassabei at Artin Dental is pleased to offer Invisalign, a clear aligner treatment, which serves as an alternative to traditional metal braces. The virtually invisible aligners, which are made of a thermoplastic material uniquely developed for the Invisalign treatment plan, look similar to teeth-whitening trays. A series of Invisalign aligners are custom-made for you to move your teeth in the sequence determined by your doctor.

How do Invisalign aligners straighten teeth?
Over the course of treatment at Artin Dental in Toronto, you will be supplied with a series of aligners. Each aligner will make slight adjustments to tooth position, a process that is mapped out in advance by your doctor, specifically for your situation. When the aligners are placed on the teeth, they cause the teeth to gradually shift from their current position. After approximately two weeks, you will begin using the next set of Invisalign clear aligners, which will continue the teeth straightening process.

How will Invisalign effectively move my teeth?
Throughout the use of the Invisalign’s patented thermoplastic design at our Toronto dental practice, Invisalign aligners move your teeth through the appropriate placement of controlled force. The main difference is that Invisalign not only controls the force, but also the timing of the force application. During each stage, only certain teeth are allowed to move. These movements are determined after we map out your unique Invisalign treatment plan.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. No one may even notice that you’re wearing them, making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle. Invisalign aligners are removable. For the best results and a timely outcome, aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day. However, unlike with braces, you have the flexibility to remove your aligners to eat and drink what you want during treatment. And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would, for fresh breath and good oral hygiene. There are no metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation to your mouth – an advantage over traditional braces. Plus, since your office visits during treatment don’t involve metal or wire adjustments, you’ll likely spend less time in the doctor’s chair. Invisalign allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete. Instead of imagining how much better it can be, you’ll be able to see it for yourself!

How long will the Invisalign treatment take?
The length of treatment depends on the severity of your case, which will be determined once you visit our Toronto dental office; however, the average case takes about 12 months for adults. The length of time necessary for a teen patient may vary and can be determined when you visit for consultation.

How do I get started with Invisalign?
It’s simple – We offer free initial consultations, so check if Invisalign is the right option for you by booking an appointment at our downtown Toronto dental office in Financial District, located in the PATH, between First Canadian Place and Exchange Tower.

YES, WE ARE OPEN!

Dear Patients,

On April 7th, the Government of Ontario declared a provincewide state of emergency-effective at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, April 8th-in response to an increase in COVID-19 cases and intensive care admissions. Similar to the last state of emergency order, this announcement does not impact any of the dental care services we currently offer on-site at Artin Dental.

Your health and safety continues to be our number one priority. Since the start of the pandemic, we have implemented enhanced measures to ensure a safe environment for our clients and staff members.

 
Be safe

ADDITINAL PRECAUTIONS

I hope this letter finds you and your family well. We are all eager to return to work, yet happy to have been blessed with good health during this very difficult time for everyone.

I am happy to inform you that we are now able to once again provide dental care for you. The Ministry of Health has lifted the restrictions placed back in March. Our governing college in conjunction with the Chief Medical Officer of Health and the Provincial Government just released the guidelines that we must meet to ensure the safety of our patients and of our staff. While many things have changed since then, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your health and safety.

During the past few weeks our doctors were available to advise and assist you, we were answering your calls/texts/emails, and even provided dental emergency treatment within the guidelines set by the Ministry of Health.

I regret that the pandemic has forced us to postpone everything except urgent care. Your oral health is our most important concern, and now we are ready to have you back for your dental care so that we can continue to protect your health.

We have been preparing for our return to practice, and I am certain that you will notice several changes to the way we will operate. Your safety and well being is our top priority, while we will continue to follow the sterilization procedures as before and in accordance to all guidelines set by Public Health, and the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario, we will be taking additional precautions.

They are as follows:

  • Appointments will be spaced out to allow for physical distancing between patients. That might mean less flexibility for scheduling your appointment, but it will also reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
  • Our team members will now conduct a screening with you before your appointment (via an online form), and this screening will be repeated and recorded once you are in for your appointment, in order to confirm your health status.
  • We have installed air purifiers with HEPA filter and PlasmaWave throughout the office.
  • You will be asked to remain outside the office until called
  • Only patients with an appointment will be allowed entry to our office, including reception area. Family members or friends will be asked to remain outside the office.
  • We ask that you wear a mask upon entering our office.
  • Your temperature might be taken upon entry to monitor your health status.
  • You will be asked to use hand sanitizer upon entry, and advised to touch nothing else. You will be escorted directly into the treatment room (there are many hand sanitizer dispensers around the office for you to use as needed.)
  • All reading material has been removed from our waiting room for sterilization difficulty
  • You will be asked to take all your belongings with you into the operatory, including coats, etc
  • Once seated you will be asked to use an oral rinse in order to avoid any bacterial/virus concentration in your mouth.
  • Once treatment has been completed, the practitioner may reserve your next appointment in the operatory, in order to avoid any lengthy stops at front desk.
  • Appointments will be arranged to encourage social distancing between patients. We may therefore be limited to the times we may offer.
  • We will set time between patients, and stay on time for your appointments in order to avoid the number of patients in the office.
  • We are starting operations with reduced staff, due to social distancing limitations. We ask that you call/text/email us if you need to contact us, and prevent heading to the office first.

 

You can expect us to continue to provide you with excellent dental care, in an environment where we all feel safe.

Please feel free to call us at 416-364-4150 or email us at info@artindental.com for any questions you may have.

We hope to see you and thank you for your continued support and loyalty. You can expect the same from us.

Sincerely,

Dr. Arash Ghassabei and Team of Awesome Professionals
