Thanks to advances in technology, your orthodontic treatment options may include ceramic (tooth-coloured) braces, lingual braces (which are placed behind the teeth) or Invisalign clear aligners.types of braces

Today’s standard metal braces are much smaller and sleeker than those of even a generation ago.

Ceramic Braces– work in the same way as traditional braces, but the brackets are made from a clear, transparent ceramic material.  The braces are less visible to others, which makes them a popular choice for adults who need orthodontic treatment.

Lingual Braces– are completely invisible so the only one who knows that you are having orthodontic treatment is you.  These braces are made of metal but are fitted on the back of your teeth instead of the front.  They are 100% customised to follow the contours of your teeth for comfort and performance.

Invisalign- uses a series of removable and clear aligners that are custom moulded to fit you.  The virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth into their correct position. You wear a new set of aligners for 2 weeks at a time until your treatment is complete.

In a consultation appointment with our specialist orthodontist Dr Ronan Perry, he will work with you to determine what type of treatment will be best suited to your treatment requirements and your lifestyle. Orthodontists have the training and experience to provide you with all the treatment options to make sure you get your best smile.

To be an orthodontist means that the individual must first graduate from dental school, and then successfully complete an additional 2-3 years of studying orthodontics.

Only those who have this level of formal education may call themselves “orthodontists.”

And only orthodontists are eligible for admission into the Orthodontic Society of Ireland.
