Orthodontics were once thought of as ‘the fancier’ side of dentistry’ – but not any more. And here’s why.

We’ve written in the past about the topic of orthodontic treatment – and whether it represents a form of vanity treatment, or is an actual necessity in terms of dental care.

Let’s take a look at both sides of the argument before coming down on either side. First of all, there’s no doubt that some people may look to orthodontics as a way of giving themselves an added little advantage in terms of delivering a magnificent smile.

But for thousands others, there’s nothing cosmetic about the issue. When people have very crooked or overcrowded teeth, the cost of doing nothing can be very high. They can face into a long life of dental problems, including severe wear on their teeth that can well cause pain – and maybe even leading to premature tooth loss.


When does it all start?

You’ll normally know what sort of a hand nature has dealt you by the age of around twelve. By that stage, all of your permanent teeth will be in place, so you’ll know their size and shape – and if there’s anything to worry about in terms of how they fit into your mouth.

That’s not to say that adults may not be in need of orthodontic treatment, but the problem is most noticeable at a younger age. It’s almost become a rite of passage for Irish teenagers to undergo a period of wearing ‘train tracks’. And at that early age, of course, they’ll often be self-conscious about their appearance, so the prospect of having to wear braces for a couple of years is not very attractive.

Thankfully, the system we use here at MyDental (known as Quickbraces) only takes around six months to work, so there’s a huge saving in the length of ‘penance’ that our younger patients have to suffer.


The benefits of Quickbraces

Apart from the fact that you can save over 18 months in terms of how long you’ll have to wear your braces, there are a number of other important benefits.

They’re also way more comfortable. All braces work on the principle of applying an ongoing, gentle pressure to what we call the periodontal ligament – that’s a fancy way of describing the bit that holds your teeth in place. The pressure that Quickbraces applies is very mild, so you’ll almost forget you're wearing them after the first week or two.

There’s also a huge cost benefit. Because you make fewer visits to our surgery, it stands to reason that we charge you less. And don't forget that, when it comes to orthodontics Dublin is a true centre of excellence, so there’s no need to even consider going abroad on so-called ‘dental tourism’.

And if you're looking for orthodontists Dublin can also offer you some other benefits – like the fact that here at MyDental, you can spread the cost over three, six or nine months with our 0% Dental Finance Plan.
