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

For many people, a visit to the dentist can be an intimidating experience. However, knowledge is power, and the more you know about standard procedures, the easier it is for you to handle. 

Read on to learn about the most common dental procedures we perform at Aardent Dental Centre. 

1 – Check and Clean 

Undoubtedly, the most common reason people visit the dentist is for a check-up and cleaning. We recommend visiting your dentist every six months. A check and clean is a great preventative measure to ensure ongoing oral health. 

2 – Teeth Whitening 

Like cleaning, teeth whitening is a common reason to visit your dentist. This relatively discomfort-free process brightens your smile and gives you back your confidence. Teeth whitening performed by an experienced dentist is quicker, safer, and more effective than home-whitening kits. 

3 – Wisdom Teeth Removal and Extractions 

While this may sound scary and painful, your dentist will do everything possible to ensure your wisdom teeth removal or tooth extraction is comfortable and as stress-free as possible. You may need extraction for several reasons, but you’ll likely be either unconscious or thoroughly numbed for the procedure, so you won’t feel a thing. 

4 – Veneers 

If you are unhappy with your crooked or discoloured teeth, your dentist may recommend cosmetic veneers. These are a thin covering joined to the front section of a tooth. Typically dentists use veneers for aesthetic purposes, and the process is simple and painless for most people. Veneers differ from dental implants, which are false teeth screwed into the jaw bone.

5 – Fillings for cavities

A filling is the recommended treatment for cavities or holes. Typically, filling cavities is a quick procedure. The dentist will numb your gum and then fill the tooth with an amalgam. You may feel pressure while they’re working, but it shouldn’t be painful.

6 – Crowns 

If your cavity is too big for a filling or if you’ve broken a part of your tooth, you’ll need a crown. On your first visit, your dentist will take a mould of your tooth; then, a lab will craft a properly fitted crown. In the second visit, the dentist will fit and secure the crown.

7 – Root Canal 

You need a root canal treatment if the tissue inside or under your tooth is infected and inflamed. The dentist will deaden the nerve and remove the damaged tissue. Sometimes you might need to take an antibiotic before the procedure.

10 – Dentures 

Dentures are usually associated with aging, but people need dentures for all sorts of reasons. Fitting for dentures is common, and it takes a while but is usually pain and stress-free.
