Introduction To Adult Braces
While most people associate braces with teenagers, more and more adults are realising the advantages of straighter teeth and seeking out orthodontic treatments. It is not uncommon to get braces in your 20s, 30s, 40s or beyond. With improvements in technology and processes, there now also more options available that are comfortable and discreet, so you don’t have to feel self-conscious. From clear Invisalign, metal braces and ceramic tooth coloured brackets, there are different treatments available to suit your particular needs that people will barely notice you are wearing. It is normal for your teeth to shift at any age, due to injuries or health conditions, or simply due to natural growth. Every smile is unique, and our specialist orthodontists will help find the best solution for you.
Benefits of Adult Braces
Good dental hygiene has a big impact on your health, and adult orthodontic treatments can go a long way to in helping to improve not only your smile but your overall well-being. One of the main reasons for this is teeth that are properly aligned are a lot easier to brush and floss between. This reduces your chance of developing issues like tooth decay and gum disease, and so means you are less likely to need dentures in the future. In addition, teeth that are correctly aligned make it easier for you to chew. This may sound like a small thing, but if your teeth are even a little out of alignment, your top and bottom jaw might slip and jolt when you eat, and instead of fitting nicely together, you might find yourself clenching or grinding your teeth, particularly at night. This can cause headaches, jaw-aches, and even back aches from all the stress. It is never too late to correct these problems, and adult braces are the perfect way to go about it.
Beyond the health benefits, adult braces can have several advantages in your day to day life. They will improve the appearance of your smile, which in turn boosts your confidence and self-esteem. Studies also show that having a good-looking smile can improve your chances of getting your ideal job, as you walk into the room with confidence.

What Our Patients Say
Why Choose Getting Adult Braces
When it comes to adult braces, there are a range of different options available. At Dublin Orthodontists, we offer traditional metal braces, as well as cosmetic braces. Cosmetic braces are a common choice for adults as they use a clear material for the braces or retainers, and so are less visible in your smile. We offer as well Invisalign which is suitable for more minor treatments. Most adult orthodontic treatments can also be corrected with lingual braces. Whether you have crooked or crowded teeth, an over or under bite, there is a treatment option for you. Our orthodontic specialists will help find the right solution for you based on your unique set of teeth.

Braces can dramatically change the appearance of the lower half of your face for the better. Orthodontic treatment helps to bring your teeth into proper alignment, and stop your jaw from jutting out in an unnatural looking way. This can help to soften your features, and give you a healthier looking smile. Adult braces can also be used to reduce large gaps between teeth, or straighten crooked teeth. Overall this has a huge impact on your appearance and can help to boost your self-esteem, which you can see in our braces before and after photos. As well as a cosmetic difference, you can see the change confidence of our satisfied patients. People who were once afraid to show their teeth now can’t wait to flash their beautiful, healthy smile.
