At Dublin Orthodontist, we believe everyone deserves to have their best smile, no matter their age. We are proud to offer safe, gentle, and affordable orthodontic treatments and braces for adults.
How does adult treatment work?
Each type of orthodontic treatment works in the same manner. Steady and gentle pressure is applied to the teeth that are being adjusted, either by a metal archwire or a clear plastic aligner. The constant pressure encourages the gradual movement and final results our adult patients are looking for. We also schedule regularly appointments during treatment so that adjustments can be made when necessary.
Modern solutions for modern schedules
As an adult, you may have delayed orthodontic treatment due to your schedule or a reluctance to have a mouth full of metal braces. However, the state-of-the-art solutions in our clinic offer adults many more options that are tailored to their needs and lifestyle, less visible, minimally invasive, and quite comfortable.
The type of braces that we offer our adult patients depends largely on the treatment that is being sought and the severity of the orthodontic issues. Regardless of which solution is right for you, the benefits of braces are vast and long-lasting, such as improved confidence, increased comfort while chewing, better oral health, and more.
Types of braces we offer adults
- Invisalign® Adult: A nearly-invisible system that uses custom-made, clear plastic trays to guide your teeth into position.
- Metal braces: A classic orthodontic solution that is effective for all orthodontic issues and affordable for all budgets.
- Ceramic braces: A tooth-coloured bracket system that blends in with the appearance of your teeth for a discreet solution.
- Retainers: A post-treatment appliance designed to help you retain your smile results for many years.
FAQs about braces for adults
Is it worth getting braces as an adult?
We certainly think so! At Dublin Orthodontist, we believe you deserve healthy teeth and a radiant smile at any age. Your smile is one of the very first things that people notice about you. When you feel confident in your smile, you can feel confident in all areas of your life. We will work with you to find the right orthodontic solution to suit your needs and lifestyle, keeping your comfort a top priority throughout treatment.
The custom-made aligners are created to fit perfectly, using leading technology that measures the contours of your mouth. Plus, you can take them out while you eat and brush your teeth, so you don’t have the same restrictions as with traditional braces.
What are the benefits of braces for adults?
The benefits of straightening your teeth with braces are immense. They will not only improve your oral hygiene but also boost your self-esteem. Adult braces have been shown to:
- Relieve tension and stress in the jaw
- Reduce clenching or tooth grinding
- Improve comfort eating and chewing
- Efficiently correct misaligned teeth
- Fix overbites or underbites
- Decrease the risk of decay or disease
- Improve smile appearance
Can I get braces again if I’ve had them in the past?
Yes. Many of our adult patients have undergone orthodontic treatment in the past. And patients who may have once had perfectly straight smiles may find that their teeth have shifted due to life circumstances, aging, hormonal changes, tooth loss, a change in oral hygiene, and more. Braces can remedy these concerns in just a few months - book an orthodontic consultation to get your personalised treatment plan and timeline from Dr Claire O’Sullivan.
