Want Whiter Teeth this Christmas????

Affordable & Safe Teeth Whitening which really works !!!'

At Frazer Dental , we offer a bespoke tooth whitening service. Our whitening products are completely safe and professional dentist quality , meaning they will really whiten your teeth - giving you guaranteed results. No chemist or supermarket whitening product will whiten your ️️teeth to the same level as the specialised whitening products available at Frazer Dental.

1. What type of whitening products do we offer?

We offer a same day whitening service as well as take home whitening kits allowing us to provide you with the type of whitening which will work best for you - even if you usually have sensitive teeth ! With affordable prices from only 149 euro for our take home whitening kit .
 
2. Can I whiten my teeth if they are sensitive ? 
 
At Frazer Dental , we recommend a type of whitening which is only worn for 30 mins per day for 1 week to any patients who have ️Sensitive teeth . This guarantees great results for even the most Sensitive teeth . Our Sensitive tooth whitening costs from 179 euro.

3. How should I prepare for teeth whitening?
 
It is important that your teeth & gums are healthy and clean before whitening . 
 
For best results ,we recommend a full check up & getting your teeth cleaned &air polished before whitening them - so give us a call to arrange a consultation today. We guarantee you will be glad you called Frazer Dental . We are here to help you achieve a bright white and healthy smile.
 
For best results , use Sensitive toothpaste (such as Sensodyne)for at least 2 weeks before whitening your teeth .
 
4. What's the minimum age for teeth whitening?
We require that all patients are at least 18 years old .
 
5. Can I whiten my teeth if I have fillings / crowns / veneers ?
 
It is important to book a check up first to be sure your teeth are suitable for whitening as sometimes White fillings or Crowns will not whiten so it is important that we assess your teeth first. Sometimes when you get your ️️teeth cleaned with our Air Polish , the stains come off your fillings and other times , we will recommend changing any dark or stained old fillings after the whitening process is completed to ensure your any fillings you have match the colour of your newly whitened teeth.
 
6. What's the difference between 'beautician or chemist whitening products ' and ' dentist prescribed ' whitening ?
 
Over the counter whitening gels & toothpastes such as those sold in shops & beauticians legally cannot contain the required percentage of peroxide required to successfully whiten your teeth . Dentist presribed whitening products contain up to 6% Hydrogen Peroxide or 16 % Carbamide Peroxide. Over the counter whitening products by law must contain no more than 0.1% peroxide , meaning they won't damage your teeth but they won't actually whiten your teeth either unfortunately.
 
7. Have you further questions about safe and successful teeth whitening?
 
Simply call Frazer Dental on 042 9668929 , we would only be too happy to chat to you about ️teeth whitening. Our whitening costs from only 149 euro .

' Free Oral Cancer Screening ' at Frazer Dental for Mouth Cancer Awareness Day , September 21st

Did you know that over 300 cases of cancer of the mouth are detected in Ireland each year?

Mouth Cancer is the 6 th most common type of cancer in Ireland. If detected early, these cancers are easily treated. Unfortunately oral cancers are usually detected late in Ireland, as the general population do not attend the dentist frequently enough .

 How often do you attend the dentist? There is a common misconception that you don't need to go to the dentist unless you have a toothache and especially if you have no teeth of your own!

If you wear dentures, or haven't been to a dentist in a long time, Dr. Rachael Frazer, of Frazer Dental in Kingscourt urges you to attend their free oral cancer screening event on September 21st, National Oral Cancer Awareness Day. We are proudly hosting this event in conjunction with the Irish Dental Association & Irish Cancer Society.

Dr. Rachael Frazer & her award winning dental practice, Frazer Dental, in Kingscourt , which features 3 dentists , an oral surgeon and an orthodontist, are offering free oral cancer checks for everyone on the day.  The examination is quick and painless. You don't have to be a regular patient of practice to attend. Please take this opportunity by taking 10 minutes to do something that could save your life.

Dr Frazer , winner of Ulster's Sensodyne Sensitive Dentist of the Year 2015, welcomes all nervous patients to attend her dental practice. We understand at Frazer Dental that many folk have a fear of the dentist and may have put if off for a long time. Our practice is a friendly relaxed environment, so there is no need to be nervous. Simply give Frazer Dental a call on 042 9668929 to arrange your complimentary oral cancer check.

Dr Frazer outlines the main signs and symptoms of oral cancer below:

  • An ulcer that doesn't heal or that bleeds , for more than 14 days
  • A growth , lump or thickening of the skin or lining of the mouth or lips
  • Loose teeth
  • Poorly fitting dentures
  • Tongue pain
  • Jaw stiffness or pain
  • Difficulty eating or chewing
  • Difficulty or painful swallowing
  • Sore throat
  • A white or red patch in the mouth

 

Risk Factors for oral cancer :

1.Tobacco use - cigarettes, pipes , cigars, snuff

2.Heavy Alcohol Use

3.Using alcohol and tobacco together greatly increases your risk

4.Excessive sun exposure on lips (lip cancer is very common in farmers and anyone who spends most of their time outside)

5.A weakened immune system

  1. A diet low in fruit and vegetables

7.Viral infections such as HPV( human papillomavirus) which is spread through oral sex

  1. Men are more likely than women to develop mouth cancer, and it tends to affect older people rather than younger individuals.

What should you do if you suspect oral cancer?

Attend your general dentist who can examine your mouth and advise you best. You can minimise your risk of developing oral cancer by attending your dentist at least once per year even if you have no remaining natural teeth.

'An oral cancer screen is part of every dental check up at Frazer Dental in Kingscourt. It could save your life! ' explains Dr Frazer.

Please note that your annual dental check up may be covered through your PRSI or medical card.

You can find out more about oral cancer on the Frazer Dental website www.frazerdental.ie under our ' news and blog' section and on the Mouth Cancer Awareness Ireland website. www.mouthcancerawareness.ie

Wisdom teeth advice ! From our Oral Surgeon . We're here to help .

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, commonly start to erupt into the mouth between the ages of 17-35.

Why do they cause problems?

Unfortunately most people do not have enough room in their jaw for wisdom teeth so they often erupt at angles

What problems can wisdom teeth cause?

1.Food packing and even decay in the wisdom tooth or adjacent tooth

2.Inflammation of the gum

3.Bad taste & bad breath

4.Pain & swelling in the gum , jaw joint & ear

5.Pus & infection around the wisdom tooth

What can be done at Frazer Dental?

Frazer Dental, your local dental practice in Kingscourt can now perform all wisdom teeth Xrays and extract all troublesome wisdom teeth here.

ANOTHER WIN FOR FRAZER DENTAL

Frazer Dental crowned "Most child friendly dental practice in Ireland"

Great news for Frazer Dental Kingscourt on winning the "Most Child Friendly Practice in Ireland" award at The Irish Dentistry Awards. The 2016 Irish Dentistry Awards took central Dublin by storm on Friday 29th January with an astounding ceremony and party. Frazer Dental Kingscourt were finalists in 3 categories : Best new dental practice , Most child friendly practice and Best rising star in Irish Dentistry (Dr. Frazer)

This is the second win for Dr. Rachael Frazer , a native of Kingscourt,having been crowned  Ulster’s Sensodyne Sensitive Dentist of the Year in December of last year, for her care and compassion of nervous patients. Rachael opened her friendly, patient- focused dental practice in August 2014 and is very proud of the whole Frazer Dental team. 'We could not have become a multi-award winning dental practice in such a short space of time without the dedication of each member of the Frazer Dental team', she says. Our nurses ( Edel Sheenan and Amy Burns) and dentists (Dr.Frazer and Dr. Mc Grath) work together to help even the most nervous of children and adults feel relaxed in the dreaded dental chair. Rachael explains that the Frazer Dental aim is to ensure that especially children do not grow up with a fear of the dentist that their parents and grandparents may have done.We are honoured to be recognised as Ireland's most child friendly dental practice.
