Sports Mouthguard

A custom-made mouthguard is one that is made by your dentist following an impression of  teeth and is fitted by your dentist. In order for a mouthguard to work effectively it has to be in position at the time of a bang to the teeth. This is why retention (ability to stay on the teeth) and accurate fit is very important. Custom-made mouth guards are individually moulded to fit the individuals teeth, and as a result, are able to stay in place better than shop-bought mouthguards. Custom-made mouthguards are superior in retention protection and comfort.  At Nuala Cagney’s dental & Facial Aesthetics Clinic, we encourage patients to always wear a custom-made mouthguard to adequately protect the teeth when playing sports.

Your mouthguard will help to avoid fractured or broken teeth, nerve damage and tooth loss. It will also protect against injuries to your lips, tongue and soft tissues of the mouth. There is now also some evidence to suggest that wearing a mouthguard could possibly reduce the risk of concussion if there is a blow to the face.

At Nuala Cagney’s dental & Facial Aesthetics Clinic, we make high quality mouthguards for sufficient protection. We have a wide range of colours to choose from and we can promise next day fitting.

At Nuala Cagney Dental & Facial Aesthetics Clinic our dentist will discuss the treatment options that are available to you. 

Routine Checkup

Your check up will include a thorough full mouth examination for dental decay.


Our dentists will be happy to discuss all of your options with you and discuss if you are suitable for a white or silver filling.


When a tooth is very badly damaged or is causing infection or pain we may need to extract or remove the tooth.

Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatments involve removing damaged or dead nerves and filling the space, this allows your dentist to repair the tooth that is left.


These are used to replace missing teeth and are made of plastic. Sometimes metal is also used in order to make them strong and less bulky.


Your dentist may decide to use x-rays to gain more information about your teeth, as they show what is happening inside and around the tooth and its roots.

Fissure Sealants

Fissure sealants are a plastic coating placed on the biting surface of molars which are used to reduce the chances of decay on these surfaces.

Stainless Steel Crowns

Stainless steel crowns are recommended for larger cavities and cavities that involve the nerve of the tooth. These are only suitable for baby (milk) teeth.

Space Maintainers

Baby teeth are needed to hold space for the permanent teeth that are waiting to come in.

Cancer Screening

Cancer screening is routinely carried out at your dental health check, giving us the opportunity to detect any abnormal areas in your mouth that may need further investigation.
