At Crescent Dental Limerick we are dedicated to the treatment of children and we aim to prevent dental disease rather than treat it at a later date. It is recommended to bring your child to your dentist for inspections from an early age with the date of their first examination around 3 years old. Do not wait until they have toothache – contact us in Limerick today on (061) 484844.

Dental sealants are a dental treatment consisting of applying a plastic material to one or more teeth, for the intended purpose of preventing cavities or other forms of tooth decay.
The fissure sealants are made a plastic resin that bonds to the tooth surface, eliminating these fissures by filling up the cracks before it sets.
Sealants are applied easily and painlessly. There is no drilling required. The tooth is properly cleaned, treated, dried and the sealant applied. It then hardens to form a protective coating over the tooth.
When should sealants be put on the teeth?
Sealants are most effective when applied after the eruption of the tooth. Early application ensures pits and fissures are sealed before the decay process begins.
A sports guard is a device worn over the teeth that protects them from blows to the face and head. Mouth guards are an important piece of athletic equipment for anyone participating in a sport that involves falls or body contact. This includes gaelic football, hurling, soccer, basketball, kickboxing, boxing – any activity that may result in injury to the mouth.
Mouth guards cover the upper teeth and protect against broken teeth, cut lips and other damage to the mouth. At Crescent Dental we offer a broad range of high quality gum shields which are professionally fitted to your teeth by our dentists.
