Dublin Teen Braces

By in large, the vast majority of people opt for orthodontic treatment during the age of 11-15 years old. This is because by that age, most of us will already have their permanent teeth, making it easier to detect potential issues such as crooked teeth or bad bites. Another added benefit of getting braces as a teenager is that your body is growing at an incredibly rapid pace, allowing your orthodontist to take advantage of these growth spurts by dramatically decreasing the treatment time compared to braces as an adult. Here at Seapoint Clinic we have a wide variety of orthodontic treatments available to help get your teenager smiling again, including traditional braces, see-through braces and Invisalign.

Teen Braces Explained

The focus of teen braces is that corrects teeth and jaw that are positioned improperly. Over time, crooked teeth or misaligned teeth can be at a higher risk of being lost due to decay and increased pressure on the jaw. By having orthodontic at an early age, your teeth are far more likely to last a lifetime with proper care and regular check-ups.

Issues Solved By Teen Braces

  • Crowded or spaced teeth
  • Irregular position of teeth
  • Extra or missing teeth
  • Gum disease
  • Premature loss of baby teeth
  • Accidents, trauma and injury

They have a great orthodontist here. His manner with children is absolutely fantastic. It was an absolute no brainer.

Can Adults Get Braces?

It may surprise you to hear that a growing number of adults are now opting for braces at Seapoint Clinic. As teeth can shift at any age, due to health or injury, there is no age limit to when you can get braces. We often find that patients may have underwent orthodontic treatment in the past but have since gone on to suffer a dental relapse due to not wearing a retainer. 

Modern dental techniques and technology also mean that treatment is far more discreet than in previous years and with treatment such as Six Month Braces and Invisalign readily available, there's no reason not to have the smile you've always wanted.
