If you’re sick of struggling with ill-fitting dentures or you’re looking for a convenient, long-term tooth replacement treatment, why not consider implant-retained dentures? These innovative prostheses offer all the benefits of denture treatment with a host of added extras.
What are implant-retained dentures?
Implant-retained dentures are dentures that are anchored by dental implants. Traditionally, dentures are held in place by the suction of the gums, but with this treatment, implants are used to secure and stabilise the denture. With implants in place to hold the denture, there is no risk of the appliance slipping or sliding.
Dental implants are small titanium appliances, which are designed as a substitute for tooth roots; they are placed inside sockets in the jaw bone and they integrate into the bone tissue, enabling them to offer the same degree of functionality as a tooth root. Once an implant has integrated into the bone, it can then be attached to the denture; implants are also compatible with dental bridges and crowns.
How could implant-retained dentures benefit me?
Implant-retained dentures offer stability, functionality and excellent aesthetics, but perhaps most importantly, they give you the peace of mind that your denture will never come loose or slide when you ear eating or speaking in public. This can be a real concern for many patients with dentures and implants are an amazing solution to many of the issues commonly brought up by denture wearers. With implants, the denture is stronger and more stable, so you can chew more powerfully and eat a wider range of foods. Implants can also lower the risk of bone loss and they are very easy to look after.

How could Botox benefit me?
Botox is a non-surgical treatment, which is most commonly used to reduce the visibility of facial lines.

What is Botox?
Botox is a purified form of Botulinum toxin type A and it is used to create smoother, line-free skin. Botox has been used to rejuvenate the skin and reduce the visibility of wrinkles and lines on the face for many years now and it is a very popular treatment. Botox is an effective treatment for facial lines and wrinkles around the eyes, nose and mouth and is particularly beneficial for those with skin folds, crow’s feet, laughter lines and frown lines.
The procedure is non-surgical and treatment takes less than half an hour, which makes this is a great option for those with hectic schedules.
What happens when you have Botox treatment?
Botox treatment is very simple and quick and there is nothing to worry or be nervous about. Before you actually have treatment, we have a consultation with you to have a look at your skin and talk to you about the areas you want to treat. We will talk you through how the treatment works and explain what to expect when you have your treatment session. We will of course, be happy to answer any questions you have.
When you have your treatment session, we will use a very fine needle to inject Botox into the areas you specified. The injections should not be painful, but if you are nervous about the needles, we can apply a mild anaesthetic lotion to your skin beforehand to prevent any discomfort. Once we have finished with the injections, you will be free to go home and the results of your treatment will soon start to become visible.
The results of Botox treatment usually last around 3-6 months and then you have the option of continuing treatment.
Halitosis is the medical name given to bad breath, a very common problem. Bad breath affects most people from time to time, but persistent bad breath can indicate an underlying oral health issue and we advise patients who suffer from this issue to arrange an appointment. We provide excellent treatments for bad breath, which will also help to reduce the risk of decay and gum disease and ensure that the teeth look healthy and clean. Our expert dental team has experience in caring for patients with bad breath and there is nothing to worry or feel ashamed about.
What causes bad breath?
There are many things that can cause bad breath, from eating strong flavours and drinking certain beverages on a regular basis, to poor oral hygiene and smoking. If you find that you get bad breath when you eat or drink specific foods, such coffee or onions, there is probably nothing to worry about and you may find it beneficial to carry sugar-free chewing gum with you. If you suffer from persistent bad breath, this may be linked to oral hygiene.
When you brush your teeth, this plays a very important role in cleansing the mouth and removing harmful bacteria. When you eat, bacteria in your mouth start to feed and this causes them to let off gases, which smell unpleasant; cleaning your mouth helps to prevent this from happening.
Smoking is a common cause of bad breath. If you would like advice about giving up smoking, our dentists and dental hygienists are always on hand.
What we can do for patients in Foxrock
We recommend regular dental checks and dental hygiene sessions for patients with halitosis. Dental hygienists provide cleaning treatments, which achieve a much deeper clean than brushing at home and this helps to remove bacteria and plaque from the mouth and give the teeth a glossy, smooth finish. We can also offer advice about oral hygiene at home, including brushing and flossing tips.
Patients in Foxrock and the surrounding area can now benefit from 6 Month Smiles, an amazing orthodontic treatment, which straightens the teeth in half the time of traditional fixed braces. We are currently offering this amazing treatment for just 2,500 Euros.
All about 6 Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is a fixed brace system, but it uses the latest technology to move the teeth much faster than traditional fixed braces. The wires are self-ligating and the treatment targets the front teeth, known as the social 6, to cut treatment times and promote comfort. This treatment is not as versatile as conventional fixed braces because it is designed for patients with either minor or moderate issues that affect the front teeth only, however, it represents a great option for those who do not need the level of intensive treatment offered by traditional braces.
Six Month Smile braces are also smaller and lighter than traditional braces and they are made from clear materials, which makes them very discreet. This treatment is often a popular choice for people who are eager to improve the look of their smile in time for a special occasion or event, such as their wedding day.
How does 6 Month Smiles work?
Six Month Smiles uses sophisticated technology, including self-ligating wires, to move the teeth gently and quickly. As treatment is aimed at people who have issues with the front teeth, the focus remains on the social 6 and this means that patients do not have undergo more intensive treatment than is required. Once the brace shave been fitted, the process is extremely simple; all you have to do is sit back, relax and wait for the braces to do their magic! We will organise regular check-ups to make sure that everything is going well and you will soon be able to show off that amazing new smile.
You may be all too aware that neglecting your oral hygiene and eating sweet foods have negative implications for your oral health, but you may not know that brushing, flossing and keeping an eye on your diet can also benefit your general health and wellbeing.
Gum disease and general health problems
Numerous research studies carried out in countries all over the world have not suggested a link between oral health problems and specifically, gum disease, and general health conditions. Researchers have found a link between gum disease and potentially life-threatening diseases, including heart disease, diabetes and strokes. Research teams believe that harmful bacteria can travel from the mouth to other parts of the body and increase the risk of atherosclerosis, a condition, which causes fatty deposits to collect in the arteries. Atherosclerosis is linked to an increased risk of strokes and heart attacks because it prevents blood from flowing freely around the body.
Your smile and confidence
As well as preventing you from developing decay and gum disease, good oral hygiene can also help to keep your smile looking healthy and bright. Surveys show that most people regard their smile as their most important feature and those who are happy with the look of their smile are more likely to come across as confident and outgoing, which can have benefits in many areas of life, from making a good impression at work, to creating new friendships and relationships.
At Dublin18 Dental Care near Foxrock we promote good oral hygiene, healthy eating and regular dental checks to benefit your health and wellbeing; our aim is for you to be free from pain and to feel happy and confident when you smile.
