in more advanced cases.
We pride ourselves on offering the personal touch. It includes getting to know you from your routine appointments and check-ups, to providing those specialist services that can sometimes be unique. Providing a fully comprehensive treatment when things aren’t that simple.
Our experience is as deep as it is broad. So here at Shields you’ll have access to our specialists providing expert care in more advanced cases. With planning and liaison for treatment that will sometimes crossover into several disciplines. They’ve worked hard to be recognised as the best in their field – undergoing further training at the highest level. They will be responsible for diagnosing, planning and performing complex dental care.
It all means that when it’s more complicated – you can still go to the practices you know here in Limerick and Roscrea.
Shields are pioneers in dental sedation, something that is often recommended for specialist and advanced procedures. Required to deal with understandable anxiety and also the length of treatment.
It can be common, but it’s still complex. Involving frequent lengthy treatment as well as several visits to the dentist. However, it will often feel as painless as a routine filling – with your comfort always a priority.
Good oral health rests on healthy gums. So our specialists and hygienists are committed to keeping gum disease at bay, especially as it can be associated with overall, as well as dental, health problems.
We have highly trained specialists who can spot the signs of Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD). Caused by the unconscious grinding and clenching of teeth and responsible for symptoms such as facial pain and headaches.
Most people who grind their teeth are completely unaware that they do it.
Bruxism is the medical term for grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw and can be caused by a wide range of factors, including stress and anxiety, missing teeth or teeth which are in the wrong position, sleep apnoea and medical conditions. If you’re concerned about teeth grinding, it’s important to speak to a dentist.
Clenching is often one of the symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction. The Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is the joint connecting the lower jaw and skull, which enables you to open and close the mouth, and chew from side to side. We have many years of experience in the diagnosis and treatment of TMD and have been members of the British Society for Occlusal Studies for over 15 years.
Creating your perfect smile is important, but we believe your overall wellbeing is equal to your teeth and oral hygiene. That’s why we’re people first. Understanding what you want from your dental treatment to give the outstanding results you deserve.
