Generally dental care is required from the age of 4 onwards. This will allow the dentist to assess your childs teeth and ensure that oral hygiene is adequate, by bringing your child along at such an early age it gives them a chance to become familiar with the dentist. Dr Enright operates in a child friendly manner, explanations of treatments will be carried out in easily understood terms. Dr Enright will tailor the advice required to your childs needs.


  • We recommend that babies teeth and gums are cleaned after feeds using water only with a soft brush or washcloth.
  • Children between one and two years of age use a soft toothbrush or clean washcloth only with water twice a day.
  • After the age of two, a fluoride toothpaste is recommended, but limiting the amount to a small pea sized amount on a soft brush.
  • Children must brush twice a daily (morning and just prior to bed time)and adults should ensure that the paste is spat out after each brushing session so that none is swallowed.

Prevention and care..

  • Chidren should not eat sugary snacks and limit eating sugary food to meal times.
  • Certainly, children should not eat sugary food before bed time.
  • Children must also be careful on their intake of acidic drinks as these are a major source of erosion to teeth.
  • By visiting the dentist, any problems with tooth decay or tooth erosion can be spotted early and therefore treated early.

Cosmetic Dental Care at Woodstown Dental Centre Knocklyon

During the filling procedures, Dr Enright routinely uses a Rubber Dam, this is a sheet of latex which stretches over the teeth. Dr Enright routinely photographs her work, this can also help in educating the patient. Many patients prefer this, as it keeps water and the suction out of the patients mouth.

The tooth is numbed and a sheet of rubber is placed over the area, the infected nerve is removed and the tooth is rinsed with bleach. Again, Dr Enright understands if patients are nervous, this appointment is quite like a filling appointment. A temporary antibiotic dressing is placed into the tooth.
