Appliance Removal Tool
Help to remove Aligners or Retainers without damaging them.
Clear aligners and Essix Retainers are very expensive and delicate pieces of equipment. If they aren’t looked after then they can easily snap and replacements can cost up to £100 each.
The most common cause of breakage is using the finger nails to pull them out of the mouth.
The ART (appliance removal tool) makes it easy and safe for the patient to remove the appliance without risk of damage.
Either from the cheek side or at the front of the mouth the ART slips underneath the edge of the appliance and gently eases it away form the teeth.
