Welcome back to Burloak Centre 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 905.581.4436, 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. Jha, and the rest of the team at Burloak Centre Dentistry

Easy care clear braces keep Oakville patients smiling

With Invisalign clear braces, Oakville and Burlington area teens and adults look great while they get straighter smiles. Potential Invisalign patients often have questions about treatment and commonly ask how to care for the aligners. You’ll be happy to learn that it is easy to keep your teeth, mouth, and trays sparkling clean.

Home oral hygiene is a breeze!

Invisalign is different from conventional orthodontics. Instead of bands, brackets, and wires, teeth are gently repositioned with transparent plastic aligners (also called trays). Since aligners are not cemented to teeth, they are removable. It is important to wear the aligners 20 to 22 hours each day for effective straightening. However, unlike traditional braces, Invisalign clear aligners can be taken out which makes oral hygiene fast and easy. This allows you to maintain a healthy and bright smile without any inconvenience.

Keeping aligners clean and sanitary

To keep aligners crystal clear and odor-free:
  • Rinse the trays when you remove them to eat or brush your teeth. Rinsing removes saliva and plaque that let odor-causing bacteria flourish. Be sure to place aligners into their storage case – not in a dinner napkin where they might be thrown in the trash accidentally.
  • Brush aligners gently, using a soft toothbrush and colourless soap. Tinted soap may stain the aligners. Rinse thoroughly with tepid water (hot water could warp the plastic).
  • Sanitize aligners by soaking in retainer cleaner or Invisalign cleaning crystals. It is a good idea to do this at least a few times each week.
Do you have other questions about clear braces? Call our Oakville office at 905.581.4436 to schedule a FREE Invisalign consultation. Our team will be happy to explain the process and help determine if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.
