MOUTHGUARD CLINIC

EXCITING NEWS
NO MORE “GAGGING GOOP” (IMPRESSIONS)
What is so exciting? We now have a digital scanner which means no more mouth full of impression “goop”. No more gagging. No discomfort. The process involves an easy digital scan and we will 3D print the necessary model. We can now fabricate a mouthguard by just taking a “picture”.
How awesome is that…..and by the way, this very same technology will apply for all other dental techniques that require impressions or as we call it “goop”. Goop is now thankfully ancient history for many dental procedures at our office.

For the past 25+ years, I have hosted a mouthguard clinic as part of my sponsorship program to assist all sports participants. It is my belief that prevention is the best medicine and I encourage all players to wear a custom fitted mouthguard (even when full face protection is worn).

WHY A CUSTOM FITTED MOUTHGUARD?
Custom fitted mouthguards (for all sports) may prevent costly restorative dentistry, which can result in dramatic dental bills over the patient’s lifetime. Just remember that a broken bone will heal, but a broken tooth never does. More important even than jaw and tooth injury, is the concussion prevention aspect of the mouthguard. We all know of professional players who have succumbed to this problem. Body checking is accepted at an even younger age so it only makes sense to make a mouthguard a standard piece of hockey equipment.

DISCOUNTED FEES
I am happy to offer these custom fitted mouthguards for a fee of $30.00, during clinic time. The usual fee for this is over $150.00, which provides a saving of over $100.00. I wish to offer these low prices in order to provide more people with the opportunity for the best protection. For that reason, you are welcome to share this email with your teammates, friends, neighbours & co-workers.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO!
1. The procedure requires a visit to my office with a parent. Please call 905-415-7700 today to schedule your appointment. Please do not respond to this email, phone calls only.
2. Please download and complete the necessary mouthguard medical history/consent form (see http://www.mydentalhome.com/mouthguard-clinic.html) prior to your appointment.
3. Bring the completed form to the appointment with $30. The digital photo required to fabricate your custom mouthguard will be taken at that time. This appointment takes approximately 20 minutes.
4. We will notify you by email once the custom mouthguard has been fabricated by our lab and is ready to be picked up. Be sure that the email address you have provided on the form is the one that you check regularly. Allow 2 – 3 weeks for the custom mouthguard to be ready.
5. You will need to return to the office to pick up the final mouthguard once you have received your email notification. Check our website for office hours.

ORTHODONTICS
In order to provide the best service for those children undergoing orthodontic treatment (braces), please see your orthodontist for your mouthguard needs.

PATIENTS WHO SEE DR. BROWN & ASSOCIATES FOR REGULAR DENTAL VISITS
For those of you who are regular patients and have a re-care visit scheduled during the summer, we will do our best to take the digital photo at that time –provided that you notify us at the time of confirmation that you would like a new mouthguard made.

CALL EARLY, DON’T BE CAUGHT UNGUARDED….. Mouthguarded that is!
In the past, my mouthguard clinics have been extremely popular and have reached capacity. Please call my office
