“The use of BPA understandably raises a concern for people who want to utilize dental products like Invisalign in Kelowna. Surely, they cannot agree that something toxic will be placed inside their mouths. However, professional associations, like the Canadian Dental Association, fortunately ensure that they regulate the limited amount of BPA in dental materials, and that extremely low levels are within the safety margins. They also require dentists and patients discuss the pros and cons of each material they will use for teeth restorations and other dental procedures.

This open communication with one’s dentist is always important, because it is the patient’s right to be duly informed of what will be happening to him given any dental procedure. On the flipside, it is the responsibility of the dentist to ensure that they fulfill their duty of properly educating and informing their patient about what will be done unto them.”
