Botox Dublin responding to our patients’ needs

Our patients are our primary focus, and we pride ourselves on listening to them and responding to their requests. Modern dentistry requires us as a dental practice to utilise all of our training to the maximum benefit of our patients. Part of our training includes facial and neck anatomy, which provides us with thorough knowledge of the skin, muscles and bones of this area of the body. We already have sterile treatment rooms where we can offer you safe treatment. Our knowledge and facilities, therefore, make our clinic a great place to provide this form of treatment as an extra benefit for our patients.


Botox is more than just a beauty treatment!

As a dental practice, we offer Botox Dublin treatment as an additional aesthetic enhancement service to our patients. Botox Dublin is often associated purely with reducing facial wrinkles, but it’s far more than that. This form of treatment has been around for more than five decades and is also used to treat a variety of medical conditions; cervical dystonia (neck spasms) and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) are two of the more common applications. Conditions such as an overactive bladder, lazy eye and even chronic migraines are known to benefit from Botox Dublin.

What is botox?

Botox is a toxin that has been adapted in a laboratory so that it can be safely used in a variety of medical and cosmetic applications. It is important to understand that in the first instance, there are four different types of injectable botox: Dysport, Botox, Xeomin and Jeuveau, and then there are variants of these as well. We use type A, which is approved for cosmetic use and has been used for more than fifty years.

How long is treatment

Treatment duration depends on the patient’s age and the complexity of the treatment (based on how many areas require treatment). On average, treatment takes around thirty minutes and is conducted by our highly experienced Dr Eddie, who has over twenty years of experience. This is a rapidly evolving industry, and Dr Eddie stays up-to-date on the latest developments by attending seminars, conferences and courses. As with all our staff, we always want to be offering the latest treatments at all times to our patients, ensuring that they get the maximum benefit of our knowledge and techniques.

How long do the results last?

The results will depend on the age of the patient but, on average, may last for around 3 to 4 months. The more treatments that you have will normally extend the period of time that the results last.

What areas can be treated

As this is a non-surgical treatment, it is very popular for use on the forehead, around the eyes and between the nose and eyebrows. This treatment can also be used on other areas such as the lower face, and it can be used to reduce excessive underarm perspiration. If you would like to reduce the signs of ageing, give us a call here at Dublin 18 Dental Rooms, and we will explain how we can help you.

Our dentist Dublin team is on your side!

As a 21st century dentist Dublin, we at Dublin 18 Dental Rooms believe that our patients and ourselves are all part of the same team, all working to achieve the same goal. That goal is to ensure that your teeth are cared for so that they will last you throughout your lifetime.


The thought of going to the dentist Dublin is usually one that is accepted with some reservations by most. We at Dublin 18 Dental Rooms have worked over the past 17 years to change that perception. We work hard at getting to know our patients, their desires, fears and aspirations, especially from a dental point of view. Leading from the front, Dr Eddie Goggins has assembled a like-minded group of people over the years to join his team; a team that enjoys the art of dentistry, which in today’s world is far more than just filling and pulling teeth. The way that dentistry is practised today often requires more than one member of the team to complete treatment, and your team is right here to deliver for you.

Preventive dentistry at the core

Progressive dentistry requires us as a dentist practice to actively educate, encourage and promote the benefits of a comprehensive dental regime. Because we spend a lot of time getting to know our patients, we believe that we can be candid with you and that you can be as candid in return. This allows us to enjoy a relationship built on trust and honesty. It is easy to assume that everybody knows how to brush their teeth, but nothing could be further from the truth. Brushing teeth correctly and with the correct equipment that suits your teeth and gums requires the help and expertise of a professional.

Part of our treatment is to ensure that all of our patients use the right brush, toothpaste and method to keep their teeth and gums clean and healthy. Adults are also encouraged to bring their children into our surgery as early as possible so that they can get used to the sight, smells, noises and the general environment. Our staff also spend a lot of time getting to know your children so that they can be relaxed and comfortable.

Aiming high

Our ambition is to provide five-star treatment, and by aiming high, we believe that we can achieve our goals. We want to be the “go-to” dentist Dublin for treatment and service that is of high quality and standards. Having lofty ambitions means that our staff members regularly attend seminars and training to stay up-to-date with the latest treatments and techniques to give you high-quality treatment. We constantly review our equipment and, where necessary, invest in the latest available. For us to provide a unique dental experience, we will always listen to your requests, fears and concerns intently and act upon them.

Our treatments are focussed on our patients

Wherever possible and within our scope of expertise, we will act on your requests, and to this end, we offer some additional treatments. As dentists, we are trained on the head and neck, bones, muscles and skin. In this modern, fast-paced world, patients require some additional non-dental treatment. Because we have the expertise and the sterile rooms, we can also offer anti-wrinkle treatment and fillers.

Invisalign Dublin bringing a smile to your face

We use many muscles to produce a smile, but we also use our teeth and sometimes we can be too self-conscious to smile because of their condition. Invisalign Dublin is on hand to help you overcome that self-consciousness by giving you a smile to be proud of!


Dental developments are moving fast

Over the past decades there have been countless improvements to existing dental appliances and new inventions. It’s no longer necessary to wear an uncomfortable and unsightly metal brace to achieve the straight teeth that you desire. Even those old metal braces have been given a revamp and they are now far more comfortable and effective than the ones in the past. Dentistry and technology have been working hard to bring you solutions to your dental misalignment problems. Invisalign Dublin is available at Dublin 18 Dental Rooms where we are helping to put that all important smile back on our patients’ faces.

More targeted treatment

Over time dentistry has become more and more sophisticated, and recognising that we are all different, a variety of dental appliances for different conditions have been developed. Many years ago misaligned teeth were normally treated by using the one appliance that was available, but now there are a number that have been created.

From braces to aligners

We have braces that work in the traditional way by using wires, blocks and bands. There are the traditional metal ones, but also there are ceramic ones which are a colour closer to the shade of tooth enamel. A clear version is also available which has brackets made from a clear dental material. There are braces which fit onto the inside of your teeth so that they are not visible and self-ligating braces work slightly differently and do not need bands.

A new concept was introduced onto the market some years back which has revolutionised the treatment of certain dental misalignment conditions. Invisalign Dublin works differently to traditional braces and resembles a gum shield.

Invisalign, a new way to bring back your smile!

Invisalign invokes the latest technology and we can show you a virtual picture of your smile after treatment, before treatment has even begun! Using the latest technology we are able to create a comprehensive picture of the entire interior of your mouth. We send this information, using Invisalign’s technological equipment, to a laboratory where they create the aligners required to provide your treatment. They send a series of trays, which look like gum shields to us. Each tray has a slightly different orientation designed to gently move your teeth into the desired location. You must wear the trays for at least twenty-three hours per day, but you can remove them so that you can eat, drink and brush your teeth. Depending on your condition, treatment can last anywhere from six months to a year.

At the end of treatment, your smile is revealed

At the end of the treatment you will need to wear one final aligner for a few weeks to allow your teeth to settle. After this period you can reveal your radiant, confident smile to your family and friends around the world.

If you need an emergency dentist Dublin, where do you go?

We, at Dublin 18 Dental Rooms, understand how suffering intense toothache or knocking a tooth out accidently can cause distress and panic. It’s important to know that your emergency dentist Dublin is there for you in your time of need. A phone call to our emergency number will provide you with advice and peace of mind.


Your teeth are precious

Your teeth are a vital part of who you are, not only from a practical point of view, to help you chew your food, but from a cosmetic point of view they enhance your features. So if you experience a dental emergency make sure that you have our emergency dentist Dublin’s telephone number handy.

What is an emergency?

If you are playing any sport or you fall resulting in a tooth being knocked out or damaged you need to phone us immediately and follow our instructions. A dislodged tooth can be saved but you need to act quickly and do not handle the teeth by the root, always pick it up by the crown. Try to wash it clean in milk rather than water and immediately gently push it back into its socket. Hold it in place with a piece of kitchen towel or gauze. If you have developed bleeding gums and the bleeding will not stop this requires urgent attention and you need to phone us immediately. Incessant toothache is one of the worst experiences and we know that it can make you irritable, especially if you have endured it for hours and have not been able to sleep. Any swelling that you detect in conjunction with toothache needs to be attended to quickly. If you find that your teeth have become extremely sensitive when you brush, eat or even without doing anything, get in touch with us. If you have injured your jaw and you are experiencing pain let our emergency dentist Dublin know and we will advise you if it’s a dental issue or a medical one.

What do we consider non-urgent dental problems?

If a filling or crown has become dislodged we advise you to make an appointment as soon as possible, but we would not consider that to be an emergency. If you experience mild sensitivity with your teeth or a dull toothache that responds to pain killers,you should make an appointment, but it is not considered emergency treatment. If your night guard or retainer has been damaged we can replace that for you at your next appointment. Even for non-urgent dental events we are here to listen and advise you.

Prevention is best

Attending your regular six-monthly dental check-ups will help to ensure that sudden dental flare ups of toothache do not occur. It is also important to always complete whatever course of treatment we have recommended for you when you are on a dental treatment plan. What you eat and drink can have a detrimental effect on your teeth and gums. Remember that your daily oral hygiene routine is a simple way to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy.

Safe Botox treatment in Dublin

At Dublin 18 Dental Rooms we understand that the signs of ageing can have a negative effect on your self-confidence. We can alleviate this anxiety by providing you with our two decades of experience in facial aesthetics and by using Botox Dublin in our safe and private treatment rooms. Facial aesthetics treatments are evolving rapidly and our practitioners attend regular seminars and training on the latest developments and techniques so that we stay up to date.


Is Botox safe?

Administered in the correct dosages and by a competent and skilled clinician, Botox Dublin is perfectly safe. This type of treatment is a non-surgical way of reducing the visible signs of ageing and can be administered to those areas of the face where it is most noticeable. The procedure is relatively quick and painless and can be completed in thirty minutes. Botox is also approved by the FDA for a variety of issues related to health. Botox is used in the treatment of certain bladder disorders, to alleviate excessive sweating and of course in facial aesthetics treatments. The actual amount of botulinum toxin that is administered in each dose is extremely small, to ensure that the effects are contained only in the area where it is applied. Botulinum toxin is produced in a powder form which is diluted in a saline solution before being administered by injection. It is recommended that women who are pregnant or who are breastfeeding should refrain from Botox treatment. Part of our process is always to discuss the treatment with you and to ascertain if you have had any allergic reactions in the past. We will discuss the benefits to you and encourage you to ask any questions that you may wish to have answered.

How does it reduce the signs of ageing?

It works because Botox Dublin is a neurotoxin which disrupts the nervous system by targeting the process by which the nerves send signals to the muscles. Your nerves release acetylcholine to your muscles making them contract. The Botox injections stop the release of this chemical which prevents your muscle from contracting, resulting in smoother skin.

What types of wrinkles can Botox be used to reduce?

One of the facial areas that is commonly targeted by using Botox is the area between your eyebrows, where you will normally find what are referred to as glabellar lines. Another area that is regularly targeted is around the outside of the eyes which is often referred to as ‘crow’s feet’. Creases that naturally occur above the area between the eyebrows, on the forehead, are also something that patients identify as requiring treatment. The corners of your mouth may also be in need of a little attention. Some other areas that are considered medical conditions where Botox can be used are scars, but as our expertise is in the facial area that is where we concentrate our procedures.

How long does the effect of the treatment last?

It normally takes between twenty-four and seventy-two hours for the treatment to show results and it can take up to five days to be completely effective. Your skin will appear smoother and wrinkle free for anywhere from three to twelve months.

Our Dublin dentist team

At Dublin 18 Dental Rooms we have dedicated individuals all working as one cohesive team to provide you with the best dental care available. Patients are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of maintaining their teeth and gums. We are here to provide you with that facility and we are flexible with our hours by arrangement, to make it as easy as possible for you. We open at eight in the morning and close at eight in the evening on certain days and if that does not suit you we will work to accommodate you wherever possible. Emergencies happen and if you should be unfortunate enough to require emergency treatment you can rest assured that one of our team will be available to attend to you. Our ambition is to make your experience the best it can be and we pride ourselves on our care and dedication, treating you as we would like to be treated ourselves. Sometimes it is necessary for your treatment to involve more than one of us and you can rely on us to work seamlessly as a team to get the results that you expect.


Regular thorough dental health checks

As an established dentist Dublin with almost two decades of service to the community and as part of our preventive dentistry, your dental appointment will normally include a thirteen point dental health check. This is a comprehensive oral cavity check which also involves a search for any signs of mouth cancer. We would like to see you at least once a year for a complete detailed oral health examination. We also look carefully at surrounding structures, as your gums are vital for the health of your teeth and maintaining healthy gums will go a long way to helping to maintain healthy teeth.

Preventive dentistry for adults and children

The importance of introducing your children to our dentist Dublin cannot be emphasised enough, because starting early is the key to dental longevity! We encourage parents to bring their children into our surgery from a young age, even before their baby teeth have gone. Regular visits will result in a relaxed and comfortable attitude when it comes to their own first appointment. Early visits allow us to develop a relationship with your children making education in the proper dental regime much easier. It also allows us to ensure that there is uniformity in the dental regime of parents and children alike.

Full range of dental treatments and more

As a progressive dentist Dublin we know how important it is in the twenty-first century to be able to produce a healthy confident smile. Our team provides a full range of general and cosmetic dental treatments from simple teeth whitening, bridges and veneers to root canal treatments. Extractions, fillings and teeth straightening using the latest braces and aligners are all part of our team’s routine procedures. If you have lost a tooth or teeth due to an accident or as a result of tooth decay we can offer dentures or dental implants to restore your ability to chew properly. We also understand how you may require just that little extra treatment for improving facial aesthetics. We offer Botox and dermal filler treatment in our safe and sterile treatment rooms by a qualified clinician. Your team is available to take care of your dental needs and that little extra!

Invisalign Dublin: the secret to a beautiful smile!

Shhhhh! At Dublin 18 Dental Rooms, we have a little secret about how we can help patients with misaligned teeth to realign their smiles, without anyone knowing how they are doing it! People can often feel uncomfortable at the thought of having to wear fixed, visible braces and this can sometimes mean they do not want to seek treatment. However, there is another way for those with mild to moderate alignment issues. Invisalign Dublin offers discreet and effective treatment for crossbites, under or overbites, gapped teeth and crowded teeth. While you are using Invisalign’s aligners, other people shouldn’t realise that you are wearing them, affording you the luxury of cosmetic dentistry results, without the whole world knowing about the process.


What is Invisalign?

Invisalign Dublin is a system that uses transparent plastic aligners. When they are worn over the teeth, they apply pressure to move them into the desired position. You will be provided with sets of aligners to change between on a weekly or fortnightly basis for a period of 6 weeks, before coming back to see us for a check-up and to receive the next 6 weeks’ worth of aligners. The aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth precisely, using iTero technology to scan your mouth and to get the measurements for them. Using this, we can also generate a 3D animation of what your teeth will look like after treatment has been completed, so you will know from the start of your treatment what the end goal will be.

Why should I choose Invisalign Dublin?

If Invisalign is a treatment that could work for you, there are many reasons why you should consider it. Invisalign offers the discretion that many people crave for having their teeth realigned. It also offers flexibility as you don’t have to wear the aligners all day, every day. You can actually remove the aligners for up to an hour a day. This means that when you are eating and drinking, you don’t have to wear them and so you don’t have to restrict your diet as you might have to do with fixed braces. You won’t have to clean your aligners after eating, but don’t forget to brush and floss your teeth! On that note, brushing and flossing can continue as normal, as you won’t have brackets and wires to contend with and so the risk of developing further oral hygiene complications is reduced considerably, compared with other treatment options where you have a fixed appliance.

How will I know if Invisalign is right for me?

To find out if Invisalign is right for you, you will need to come into the practice for an initial consultation. During this appointment, we will examine your mouth and we will need to take an OPG and a CEPH X-ray. Alongside a digital scan of your mouth, we will also take impressions. We will be able to discuss the treatment options with you and you can make a fully informed decision having asked as many questions as you need to about the treatments offered.

At Dublin 18 Dental Rooms, we want you to benefit from our experience that Invisalign achieves beautiful results discreetly and effectively. Come and see us to find out how you can smile your best smile!

Dublin 18 Dental Rooms: our emergency dentist is here for you

There is arguably nothing worse than dental pain, especially if you are the one feeling that pain! A tooth can’t be rubbed better and the constant pain that can ensue from a chipped tooth or a dislodged one can be unbearable for patients.

Botox Dublin: getting the elixir of youth in minutes!

At Dublin 18 Dental Rooms, our dental practice has a little secret! While you may not be a mastermind for realising we do all things teeth, you could get a bonus point for realising that we are also highly qualified to deliver facial aesthetics treatments. For those of you who may be thinking this is a little irregular, do not be alarmed! Dentists are highly experienced and knowledgeable about facial anatomy. This means that our dentists are well-equipped for carrying out Botox Dublin treatments. With delicate procedures being intrinsic to dentistry, injecting the tiny facial muscles with Botox Dublin is also a treatment we can deliver in just 30 minutes to give you a fresher, more youthful appearance.


What is Botox Dublin?

While you may have seen some photographs in magazines of celebrities who have taken Botox a little too far, the fact is that the results can be far more natural. We use botulinum toxin type A in our injections and carry out the procedures in the sterile and safe environment that you would expect from any medically trained person. Our dentist has over 21 years of experience in Botox procedures, there is no need for general anaesthetic or downtime required after treatment, although we do use a local anaesthetic gel to minimise the risk of you feeling any discomfort.

The aim of the treatment is to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; this is achieved by injecting the targeted area with the botulinum toxin type A. This blocks the nerve endings that cause your skin to contract and allows the muscles to relax and look smoother. Botox is a purified form of this toxin, which is FDA approved. We only use extremely small amounts of this to achieve the most natural looking results.

How long will the results last?

It is reasonable to assume that you don’t want to be popping in to see us every week to keep on top of your youthful glow (as much as we’d love to see you!) With Botox, you only need to come to see us for repeat treatments every 3 to 4 months. This means you may only need to see us roughly 4 times a year. It should also be noted that with these treatments, the skin can also start to rejuvenate itself, as it becomes smoother with the muscles being relaxed, it can start to hold this look on its own for longer periods of time.

How do I get started?

To find out if Botox is the right treatment for you, simply come and visit us for a consultation. We will discuss your goals and will be able to advise on the best way forward for you. We also offer dermal fillers, which may be more appropriate for your needs. You can ask us as many questions as you need to about the proposed treatments, to be able to make an informed decision about your own personal plan.

At Dublin 18 Dental Rooms, we want you to feel and look fabulous, so come and see us to find out more about how Botox can give you a new lease of life!

When you need a dentist, Dublin 18 Dental Rooms has it all!

If you are looking for a dental practice with a relaxed environment and one that uses the latest technologies, then Dublin 18 Dental Rooms is for you! We offer a wide range of treatments to suit all dental needs, including general dentistry, restorative procedures and cosmetic ones. We also offer facial aesthetics treatments to finish off your look and help you to smile with the confidence you deserve to have. At our practice, we pride ourselves on delivering excellent care, no matter what the age of our patients. If you have missing teeth, our dentist Dublin offers a very popular treatment that can help you to get your smile functioning and looking completely natural again, dental implants.


What are dental implants?

Dental implants consist of titanium screws that are fitted into the jawbone, where you have missing teeth. These screws are used to attach replacement teeth to and once they are firmly fixed in place after your body’s tissues have fused over the screws, the replacement teeth won’t be going anywhere! Replacements for the visible part of the teeth can be crowns, bridges or dentures, depending on how many you need to replace. At our surgery, our dentist Dublin has a range of brands to choose from depending on your specific needs – and we tailor our treatment to you.

What are the benefits of choosing implants with our dentist Dublin?

The obvious benefit of an implant is that once the screw has fused with your body’s tissue, it is held rigidly in place. This means that you will be able to talk freely, without the fear of your replacement teeth loosening and embarrassing you, as can sometimes happen with dentures for example. Equally, you should also be able to eat and drink whatever you want to and not have to worry about finding a little extra crunch in your meringue! At our dental rooms, we offer a valuable treatment, which delivers replacement teeth for the whole mouth, using just 4 screws. Once the healing has taken place between the screws and the jawbone, you then return for your permanent replacement prosthesis to be fitted.

A further advantage of choosing implants is that you can continue to care for your oral hygiene without any additional effort. Simply maintain your implants by brushing and flossing twice daily and come to see us for your routine dental check-ups. It couldn’t be easier to care for your new smile! Many patients feel that their smiles look extremely natural and nobody knows that they haven’t got a full set of natural teeth. The beauty of dental implants is that replacement teeth are made to match each other, and any remaining natural teeth that you may have.

What next?

If you are interested in finding out how we can help you at Dublin 18 Dental Rooms, no matter what your concerns are, book in for a consultation with us to discuss your goals. We will examine your mouth thoroughly to identify what your treatment options are and together we will be able to devise a treatment plan for you. Whether you just need general dental care or something a little more special, we can help you to gain a smile that you won’t want to hide.
