What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is the specialised treatment that gently guides your teeth into their correct position which means you can straighten uneven, misaligned, crooked and prominent teeth and have the smile you have always dreamed of!

What are your Treatment Options?
Traditional Metal Braces
These have progressed significantly since the early days and are now much lighter than before. They are made from a high-grade stainless steel and have metal brackets that are attached to each tooth using a type of cement. The brackets are linked to each other with a thin archwire which puts pressure on the teeth and guides them slowly into the correct position.
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.
The Invisalign system 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.
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.
What our Patients have to say…
My two daughters are attending with Dr Perry for orthodontic treatment. I myself had undergone Invisalign treatment with another practice but was unhappy with the end result. After a consultation with Ronan and Natalia, I decided to re-start my Invisalign with him. Four months later, I am finished with my treatment and my teeth are amazing. Natalia and the team are amazing. Apart from being very professional, they are lovely friendly people. My teeth are nicer than I could have ever imagined! I would recommend him and the team to anyone. Thank you guys!
I chose Dental House for my treatment because I wanted lingual braces and Dr Perry is one of the best orthodontists in Dublin for this type of treatment. I found my initial consultation to be very good and the treatment was very high quality. I’m very happy with the treatment and the end result.
I had a big problem at the front of my mouth as there were 3 teeth in the place where the two front teeth should have been. This made me very very self conscious and I didn’t like to smile or laugh so it wasn’t good for my self-esteem and personal happiness.
When Dr Perry told me that it would take 2 years and that I would have a nice smile at the end of that time I was shocked. I assumed I wouldn’t ever have a nice smile and was only looking for an improvement on my current situation. I also needed a lot of other work and because the team were both kind and extremely good at their job, it was very soon any fears I had left about going to the dentist were gone.
I’m now finished my treatment and Dr Perry was right, I do have a smile I am very happy about. I would and already have recommended friends to Dr Perry and I am 100% positive they too will be very impressed with the results and the staff.
