Ear Nose and Throat Problems

ENT Problems & Treatments

ENT Symptoms



  • Sore Throat due to enlarged Tonsils or Adenoids
  • Stuffy Ears or “Glue ear”. Otitis Media Infection. This type of infection is very common in children and is traditionally treated by the surgical placment of Grommets in the ears to drain the infection. This practice has been used in Ireland since 1954.
  • Sinus Infections, pain in the face
  • Blocked Nose, difficulty breathing through nose
  • Allergies
  • Rhinitis or “Runny Nose”
  • Hearing Loss or Noise / ringing in the Ear often called “Tinnitus”
  • Snoring

ENT Treatments

  • Consultation with a Medical Doctor in order to diagnose the cause of the problem. Surgical intervention may be necessary.


  • Consultation with a Dentist who understands Facial Growth Abnormalities. Simple Bite opening techniques may allleviate young children with regular “Glue Ear “problems. Adults should have their “Bite” checked, as Sinus and “Noisy ear” problems may be caused by a Bad “Bite”.


  •  If somebody has a  Mouth Breathing problem, the Buteyko Breathing Program or our own Breathing Well program are highly recommended. Once normal nasal breathing is re-established E.N.T problems often dissappear.


  •  Myofunctional Therapy 
    This therapy is frequently required to modify and correct the bad oral muscular habits such as tongue thrust, incorrect swallow and mouth-breathing, all of which cause the teeth to become crooked and the face to develop poorly thus compromising the airways. Correct oral habits encourage forward mid-facial development, particularly in children, thus opening the airways, establishing nasal breathing, and improving overall health, and wellness. We are the only Practice in the country currently addressing, modifying, and correcting bad oral habits using Myofunctional Therapy.

    Happy Patients

    My experience in the O Connor dental health was pleasent.As a person who is nervous about visiting the dentist i felt very relaxed both in the waiting room and on the chair.Over the years i have attended a few different dentists and this has been the one practice where i felt relaxed and at ease due to the care of the staff. Before my procedures it was explained to me by the staff what to expect and i found this helped put me at ease. For any one who is nervous of visiting the dentists i would strongly recommend this practice.



    My daughter needed orthodontic treatment. Tony did a very comprehensive plan for my daughter and went through it with me and my daughter in great detail before he began the treatment. We knew how long it was going to take and what exactly was involved. What I liked about Tony was, he was so enthusiastic himself about the treatment and took great pride in getting it right, tweaking a bit here and there to make sure he got the best result. He explained everything to my daughter and encouraged her through the treatment. Tony does not just look at the teeth but also the shape of her mouth and the overall look. I would highly recommend Tony and his team, he is a genuine, passionate and meticulous about his work and a very nice person as well. My daughter has a lovely smile and my younger daughter can't wait to start her treatment as she sees the fantastic results of Tony's work and can't wait to have the same fantastic smile.
