Dental health examinations are the key to maintaining excellent dental health and are available to all patients.
Removing as little of the tooth structure as possible to maintain the strength and integrity of the tooth.
The level of detail achieved by the microscope ensures accurate location and removal of all infected material for maximum success.
Some root canals become blocked for various reasons and leaving them can markedly reduce the success of treatment. The microscope can greatly facilitate their location and treatment, leading to much improved outcomes.
Hidden root canals, easily missed by the naked eye, can be located and treated.
The magnification achieved by microscope greatly improves the success when microendodontics is needed to retreat a tooth that has an existing root filling.
If you think there is a chance you might be pregnant, it is always wise to inform your dentist before you begin treatment. Being pregnant will not prevent you from having dental treatment carried out, but most dentists prefer to defer any elective procedures (procedures that are not absolutely necessary) until after the pregnancy is over. This is particularly the case during the first and third trimesters. The taking of dental x-rays is also best avoided, if possible, during pregnancy, but experts agree that x-rays may be taken, where necessary, in the case of an emergency.
At your first (and subsequent) visit(s) to a dentist, a thorough medical history is routinely taken. The history will include asking you questions about your general health, previous illnesses and how they may affect your dental appointments.
The dentist will also ask you about any medication you are taking and will ask about any allergies you might have.
These are all precautionary measures designed to ensure that treatment can be carried out safely and efficiently while you visit your dentist.
You should visit your dentist at least once a year, more often if you have difficulties.
Remember under the PRSI and Medical Card dental schemes you are entitled to a free oral examination once a year!
Had an appointment with Dr. Ciara today. This extremely kind and caring Dentist puts you at ease from the moment you walk through the door. She is utterly committed and professional and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
I was very nervous and Seamus was absolutely fantastic. I didn’t feel a thing and he kept me really calm and relaxed. Also the lady in reception was lovely to deal with. Highly recommend. Overall a great experience during this pandemic.
I was visiting Tralee and encountered a serious and sudden complication with a tooth infection. A serious practice, who because of their commitment to late hours service, treated me within the hour. A dentist called Ciara treated me. Thank you. Summa cum laude! First class!
