teeth should be brushed TWICE a day : after breakfast and last thing before bed for 2-3 minutes. Toothpaste should contain at least 1000ppm sodium fluoride to have a preventive effect.
It is impossible to cut out all treats but with a few changes our teeth can be much happier, such as keeping treats to meal times ans eat treats all in one go, not slowly over time.
As a practice limited to paediatric dentistry, our first visit aims to meet you (the parent or guardian) and your child, while introducing you to our child, while introducing you to our child-friendly dental environment.
Dr Abigail Moore, Paediatric Dentist
This is the website of Dr Abigail Moore, a Paediatric (child-specific) Dentist based in Dublin.
This is a referral based practice- children are referred to us from general dentists who feel complex or extensive paediatric care is required. Abigail is committed to providing comprehensive, quality dental treatment to children in a child-friendly environment. Abby welcomes referrals into the practice and takes pride in giving them a positive introduction to the dental setting, paving the way for future good oral health.
Abby has a special interest in traumatic dental injuries, developmental defects and management of anxious patients. Our fellow colleagues provide the expertise of other specialities e.g. orthodontics for children where needed ensuring a multi-disciplinary approach.
Many children will only need a caring approach and gentle introduction to the dental setting in order to cope with treatment. For the few children who have extensive treatment need or severe anxiety problems, inhalation sedation and general anaesthetic facilities are provided at the Hermitage Medical Clinic.
