Clontarf has extended their after hours appointments every Wednesday and now offers Orthodontic and botox treatment for your convenience.

You may ask “Why botox in dentistry”?

Botox is now being increasingly used in dentistry due to its therapeutic uses in treatmentĀ of certain oral conditions.

Botox therapy is a minimally invasive procedure and is showing some positive results in management of muscle-generated dental diseases like TMJ disorders (jaw joint), bruxism (grinding), clenching and masseter hypertrophy (enlargement of the cheek muscle).

Every day dentists are used to working inside the mouths of their patients and administering local anaesthetic, therefore they are the perfect practitioner to be carrying out botox therapy in the facial area.

 

“What are the main benefits of Orthodontics?”

Apart from the obvious physical changes of an improved bite and straighter teeth, the benefits often go well beyond. We know it is important to have beautiful straight teeth, however it is also important to help alleviate other potential health problems associated with the teeth and/or jaw.

Crooked teeth and problems with the jaw could contribute to compromising your oral health by improper cleaning which could lead to tooth decay, gum disease or even tooth loss.

So as you can see, both these services really could be beneficial for those who have any concerns in these areas.

Call us on 3284 7112 to secure your consultation with Dr Daniel or use the online booking service on the website. Dr Daniel is available every Wednesday evening until 7.30 pm.
