Dental Implants from €1500 at Pearl Dental and Beauty, Dublin 2

Dental implants at Pearl Dental, Dublin 2 are more affordable than ever, with fees from €1500 for multiple units. And these are Ankylos implants, one of the leading implant manufacturers in Europe, not mini-implants or obscure cheaper implant types. The fee for a standard dental implant at Pearl Dental includes everything- assessment, surgery stage, restoration and review visits. There are no hidden fees to surprise or disapoint, and we pride ourselves on our committment to service and customer satisfaction. Please note that a definite quote can only be provided after assessment, as there are many factors that influence the treatment plan, and therefore the cost, of dental implants.

A dental implant is generally the most complete and effective method of replacing a missing tooth, and is a remarkably civilised procedure, generally requiring no time away from work, (except the treatment appointments), usually involves little or no pain, and is now an incredibly reliable procedure in the hands of a competent and experienced dentist who is prepared to take the necessary time and care to ensure success. Dental implants are not a procedure to be undertaken during a weeks holiday to foreign climes, as the planning, consent and undertaking of such procedures requires more than a cursory visit, and dental implants that go wrong often require immediate intervention, which can be much more difficult to access if the dentist is 3 hours away on a plane!

Many successful and competent dentists carry out dental implant procedures in other countries, but if they tell you that you only need a weeks visit, move on to the more conscientious dentist who accepts the fact that implants need careful planning, careful explanation and consent, and a high level of technical skill to be successful. Wherever you decide that your implants will be carried out, ensure that the dentist is expecting at least 5 or 6 visits from initial assessment to final restoration, and ensure that they give a warranty of at least 5 years on all the work, with no further cost to be incurred by you if anything goes wrong. 

Here at Pearl Dental, Dublin 2, we guarantee all of our dental implants, fixtures and crowns for a minimum of 5 years (subject to certain criteria), and don’t expect you to pay for anything should there be a failure in that timeframe.

Finally, be aware that dental implants require excellent maintenance regimes, both by you, and your dentist. Here at Pearl Dental, we advise all of our dental implant patients to see our hygienist, Joann, on a regular basis to ensure that the implant is maintained impeccably, along with the rest of the teeth, and to ensure that the patient’s oral hygiene is optimised to maximise gum health.

If you require further information on dental implants, contact us at 01 679 0625, or via e-mail at reception@pearltreatments.ie.

Dental Hygienist Services at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon, Dublin 2

A Dental Hygienist visit keeps teeth in tip-top shape

Probably the most undervalued and abused member of the dental team, both by dentists and patients, Dental Hygienists have a hard life, as many dentists use them as a depository for all the patients and work they don’t want themselves, and many patients don’t quite understand their role when they’re sent to see them.

In our world here at Pearl Dental, Dublin 2, our hygienist, Joann, is considered a vital part of our dental team, and helps maintain optimum oral health for our patients, as well as ensuring that complex restorations are cleaned and maintained as they should be, for maximum lifespan. One of the most important tasks that a dental hygienist undertakes is the treatment of gum disease and the maintenance of the gum health thereafter. If you have bleeding gums, or find that your dentist spends only a couple of minutes cleaning your teeth at your check-up visit, it’s probably time to see the hygienist to find out what a properly clean mouth feeels like.

That smile needs care. Your hygienist is the ideal person to provide it.

If you want a clean, healthy mouth, perfect oral hygiene, and immaculately kissable breath, a hygienist should become one of your best friends, as she will be able to advise you on the most appropriate oral hygiene techniques for your mouth, will clean your teeth more diligently, and more thoroughly than the majority of dentists, and should take a personal interest in you becoming a paragon of oral health. She is generally able to treat the majority of cases of gum disease, and you can see her as often as you wish to maintain that perfect smile, without having to see the dentist every time.

Also, check this post for more information on gum disease:

If you get into knots with floss, drink mouthwash as an aperitif, and use interdental brushes to clean your ears, you need a visit to the hygienist ASAP!

Visit the hygienist to learn the best hygiene techniques for your mouth

Our hygienist, Joann, is available Wednesdays and Fridays in our studio on Nassau Street, and will gently, but thoroughly, clean and polish your mouth, and coax you into better oral hygiene habits. She is also appreciated by us dentists too, as she can clean a mouth better than any of us are able!

Root Canal Treatment at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon, Dublin 2

Root canal treatment has long inspired fear and dread in all who hear the words, but here at Pearl Dental, Dubin 2, we don’t believe it should be that way. Prices for RCT start from €450 for simple, routine, single rooted teeth, and reach around €850 for the most complex multi-rooted back teeth. These fees are tax deductable at 20%, and can also be reduced if you are qualified under your PRSI contributions.

All of our dentists are trained in the latest techniques:

  • for anaesthesia before root canal treatment
  • for effective isolation of the tooth during root canal treatment, to ensure optimum sterilisation of the root canals
  • for efficient and rapid cleaning of the root canals 
  • in effective methods of sealing the canals afterwards.

The procedure is quite time consuming, as effective sterilising of root canals takes patience, care and advanced techniques, but the procedure should be ENTIRELY painless, should only need to be undertaken once, assuming that optimum techniques are used, and enables an otherwise doomed tooth to be saved for the longterm.

Root canal treatment is not cheap, due to the time and materials used to undertake the procedure effectively, and if you do require a root canal treatment, use this checklist to see if your dentist is anywhere near up to speed. Remember, a failed root treatment can often lead to loss of the tooth, so you want to ensure that the chances of success are maximised, as follows:

  1. Rubber dam (see other posts on this site for white fillings, ( which shows photos of a rubber dam in place). This is essential in ensuring a sterile environment, and eliminating any leakage of chemicals into the mouth during the procedure.
  2. Magnification. Almost every specialist in root canal therapy will insist that root canal treatment can never be undertaken effectively without magnification to enable maximum visualisation of the root canal system. This is imperative in ensuring that every canal is located and cleaned effectively. We regularly find ourselves undertaking retreatment of a tooth that has previously been root treated elsewhere due to the fact that a canal had been missed. Retreatment is expensive, and you don’t want the job done twice!
  3. Nickel Titanium Files. All of the most recent developments in RCT revolve around the use of these types of specialist files, which make for faster and more accurate cleaning of the canals.
  4. Thermal Filling Materials. It is generally accepted that thermally packed fillers are the most effective method of sealing root canals.
  5. Tooth Seal after RCT. For almost all back teeth, it is recommended that a crown be placed after RCT to strengthen and protect the tooth, which can become brittle after RCT. Your dentist should advise you of this before the procedure begins, as the crown may be more expensive than the RCT, and you should be aware of all the costs before you begin.

The basic procedure for RCT can be found below, and for more information, see our main site www.pearltreatments.ie, call us on 01 679 0625, or e-mail us at reception@pearltreatments.ie.

Tip of the week 5 from Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon, Dublin 2

Check Your Diet…

Much as this may be a surprise to many, tooth decay does not just happen.

For your tooth to rot, it needs to be covered in bacteria (of which millions inhabit every mouth, even the clean ones!), and these then need a regular supply of sugar to do their damage. Those of you with a sweet tooth will know what we’re on about straightaway, but for those of you in denial, check for the number of times you drink tea or coffee with a little sugar added each day. Count how many times you pick up a fizzy drink, a fruit juice or a squash between meals. Incidentally, most fizzy drinks are acidic as well, even the sugar free versions, and are probably one of our biggest business builders! Keep track of the number of little snacks you smuggle in to keep your day at work bearable. And don’t forget the sneaky sugary ones, like flavourings for crisps, sauces on foods or sandwiches, most mints for sucking or chewing, and many chewing gums to name just a few.

Late night snacks are particularly unfavourable for teeth, as the natural defence, saliva, slows down to prevent drowning (or drooling!) when asleep, so that hot chocolate before bed is not a great idea.

Ideally, your teeth should not be exposed to sugar more than 3 or 4 times in an average day, which is generally breakfast, lunch and dinner time, and if you find you’re way over this figure, we’ll probably be seeing you soon!!

For parents out there, kids teeth are much more vulnerable than those of adults, so be obsessive with their diet when young to prevent serious trouble later on. Good habits in childhood tend to last, as do bad ones! More on kids in the next tip of the week.
