Home  /  Braces - Dental News  /  Let us put you straight about crooked teeth.

Clear braces have never been more effective or affordable, so if you have crooked or overcrowded teeth, here’s what you need to know.

In the past week or so, we were watching a fascinating documentary on the history of the motor car. And two things struck us very strongly from the story that unfolded.

First of all, we were amazed at how far cars have evolved since Carl Benz first filed a patent back in the 1880’s. But the other thought that struck us was how the evolution of the car has accelerated beyond belief over the past two decades or so. It’s mind-boggling to think how far a typical car can travel today on a litre of fuel, for example.

And yes, you’ve guessed it, this got us thinking about how far our own field of dentistry has progressed in the very recent past. And nowhere is this more evident that in the area of clear braces. While they’ve been around since the early 1800’s, they’ve really ‘grown up’ as a form of treatment in much more recent times.

Those early train tracks were large, heavy, uncomfortable and unwieldy. And if we’re to be honest, that trend continued for many, many years. Being ‘condemned’ to wear train tracks was one of the worst things that a young teenager could imagine.

What are the benefits of more modern braces?

Thankfully, just like the car, clear braces today are unrecognisible from their old-fashioned cousins. The system we use here at MyDental is known as Quickbraces, and they offer a whole host of benefits.

  • The most significant benefit is that they can work their magic in as little as six months. This compares brilliantly against two years (or even more) for traditional braces. No two cases are the same, in terms of duration, but when you come in for your initial consultation, we’ll be in a better position to give you a precise indication of how long you’ll have to wear them for.


  • Secondly, they’re immeasurably more comfortable to wear. This is because they're made from much lighter materials, and the fact that they exert less pressure on the teeth and gums than the traditional version. It’s no exaggeration to say that many of our patients forget they're wearing braces after just a week or so of wearing them.


  • The third big benefit is one that you might not expect. You’re probably guessing that a new technology like this must cost the earth. Far from it. In fact, they’re much more affordable that their traditional counterparts. Why so? Well, because they do the job in just six months, you don't need to visit us as often. This means that we can afford to charge you less for professional attendances.


The bottom line is that clear braces in Dublin have never been more affordable, so why not contact us about restoring a brilliant, straight smile. And remember, just six months can do the trick!

Clear braces cost even less, in cash flow terms, if you decide to use our 0% Dental Finance Plan.
