Happy Halloween!

Posted by Clinic on 26-10-2011 9:52 am

With Halloween quickly approaching, there are plenty of tasty temptations about.  We’ve compiled a list of ways to help keep your teeth healthy, so you can avoid an emergency trip to the dentist.

-If you have crowns, bridges, braces or fillings, avoid eating sticky caramels, nuts, toffees etc. Orthodontic patients in particular should look for melt-in-your-mouth treats.
-Limit sugary treats to once a day, as grazing on these foods will be continuously be bathing your teeth in sugar.
-Drink a glass of water or milk after eating to help wash away some of the sugars and acids.
-Make sure that you thoroughly brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day, and visit your hygienist regularly to maintain good oral hygiene.

Limerick Study Club

Posted by sean on 23-2-2011 4:44 pm

Following the success of our Cork Study Club, I take great pleasure in announcing the date for our Inaugural Limerick Study Club, which will be held on Tuesday the 15th of March at 7pm in the No. 1 Pery Square Hotel, Limerick.  The meetings will be held four times a year, with Wednesdays being the preferred choice.


The first meeting will feature lectures from both myself and my colleague, Dr Traelach Tuohy, Periodontist.  I will aim to introduce the basics of Implant Dentistry, while also discussing the important question of when a tooth should be extracted and when it should be restored.  Implants are usually an option when teeth are missing, but what if a tooth is still in place?  It is easy to decide to keep a tooth when there is sufficient tooth structure to work with.  Likewise, it is easy to extract a tooth in an obviously hopeless situation.  There is however that grey area when tougher choices have to be made.  What is the cut-off point for retaining a tooth?  Saving a tooth with a poor long term prognosis can have a significant impact on the next treatment option, particularly if an implant retained restoration is to be considered.


Should you wish to attend this Study Club or to find out more, please contact us.
