Look and feel years younger!

Do you ever look in a mirror and wonder when the years started to catch-up with you? Well now you can take action.

At Pembroke Dental Ballsbridge, Dr David Keenan can offer a selection of non-invasive cosmetic treatments.

Our treatments are popular with both men and women and we always encourage a natural result which will make your face appear fresher and younger.

Wrinkle treatment (Upper face)

We offer anti-wrinkle injections which relax your facial muscles to reduce and soften lines and wrinkles. The areas Dr Keenan can treat with this technique include frown lines on your forehead and crow’s feet next to your eyes.

The results last for between 3-4 months.

If you want to look younger and soften those lines of aging book a consultation with Dr Keenan at Pembroke Dental Ballsbridge, D4, please call 01 668 3242.

Stroke

Recent research has suggested that gum disease in patients carries a potentially higher risk of having a stroke than diabetes and has almost the same impact as high blood pressure in causing them.

Whilst obesity and smoking are commonly associated with raising the risk of suffering a stroke, many people don’t know the risks associated with poor oral health. According to the International Dental Health Foundation ‘only one in six people realise that people with gum disease may have an increased risk of stroke’.

Basically, bacterial infections can cause the body to be at higher risk of developing a blood clot which in turn is what causes the higher risk of developing a stroke.

What can you do?

If preventing gum disease may lower your risk of having a stroke, isn’t it worth flossing and brushing regularly? You should also visit your dentist every six months for a full dental health check and a thorough cleaning of your teeth.

If you are experiencing any difficulties please contact us in our Dublin dentist practice today at 01 668 3242.
