Important COVID-19 UpdateMore Info

Dear Valued Aardent Dental Centre Patient, It seems that all we hear and talk about these days is COVID-19(Coronavirus). Nevertheless, we want to reassure you that we are taking extra measures in addition to our usual stringent hygiene practices. The health of our patients, staff and anyone who enters the building is of paramount importance to us. We are taking a multitude of precautions as recommended by the appropriate health authorities (and some of our own). These include,

  • Spacing of waiting room chairs by a minimum of 1.5meters.
  • Removal of magazines, newspapers and children’s toys from the waiting room.
  • Offering patients to wait in their cars if they prefer.
  • Insisting that all people who enter the building use hand sanitiser (provided).
  • Asking all people to practice high levels of cough/sneezing hygiene.
  • Requesting that anyone with a temperature/flu like symptoms contact us and postpone their dental appointment.
  • Regularly sanitising building surfaces like doorknobs etc.
  • Requiring patients for some procedures to rinse with 1% hydrogen peroxide solution (known to kill coronavirus in the mouth).
  • Availability of non-contact body temperature devices for patient screening if the situation escalates.

Please rest assured that we are open for business and able to continue our excellent level of treatment for you.

As you will be aware the situation is ever changing as will be our response. We will endeavour to keep you informed along the way.

Kindest regards,

Richard Williams

Custom Mouthguards at Aardent Dental Centre

Making Your Mouthguard

The first step in making a mouthguard is having an impression taken of your teeth. We use soft putty in a tray to capture the exact shape of your teeth and mouth. Then, a model is made from the impression. Next, we melt the thick protective material over the replica of your mouth, so that it fits snuggly and comfortably. You can even choose your own colour so that your mouthguard matches your team uniform.

Are you or your child an athlete? A large percentage of sporting injuries affect the mouth and teeth. While you might already be wearing protective gear to avoid injury elsewhere in your body, are you doing the same for your smile?

Falls, blows to the face or other athletic-induced trauma can lead to extensive (and expensive) dental needs. Protecting yourself with a custom-fitted athletic mouthguard reduces the risk of injuries like

  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Broken or chipped enamel
  • Concussion
  • Facial lacerations
  • Internal nerve damage, resulting in tooth death

The guards we make in our practice are designed to fit your unique smile, providing the best protection possible. When a mouthguard is made using a mould of your actual teeth, it provides a better fit than anything you can purchase over the counter. If you take a hit, a custom mouthguard is far less likely to fall out (exposing you to secondary trauma).

Custom Mouthguards Made For You

If you are active in a particularly dangerous or physically demanding sport, we may choose to outsource the manufacturing of your mouthguard. We can let you know which one is best for your needs once we’ve had time to discuss what type of activities you’re involved in (football, kickboxing, gymnastics, etc.).
A professionally fitted mouthguard is one of the best pieces of protective equipment that you can invest in. Contact us today to get yours!
