Which type of braces should I choose?
Our goal is to give you the widest range of treatment options to straighten teeth. This means we aren’t constrained by only offering you fixed braces, clear braces or removable braces. Together, we get to discuss the orthodontic options from the clinical and lifestyle point of view.
Sometimes there might be a clinical necessity to opt for fixed braces. Fixed braces can often work a little quicker than removable orthodontics, as well as being able to fix more complex crooked teeth problems.
Fixed orthodontic braces can be provided in the classic metal train tracks style, or in the more cosmetically acceptable clear/ceramic fixed braces.
For more cosmetic orthodontic options which don’t involve a lot of back teeth movement then we can usually offer clear braces as one of the best orthodontic options.
Is Orthodontics Worth It?
Did you know that straighter teeth are also healthier teeth? This is because the bacteria which cause tooth decay generally hide in between your teeth in the difficult to reach places. If your teeth are crooked then it’s even more difficult to clean in between your teeth with floss or an interdental brush. Straight teeth make it much easier to get that brush or floss in between, meaning you can keep the bacteria at bay and therefore your teeth and smile healthier for longer.
Of course, straighter teeth also look better. Many people are concerned about rotated, twisted, buck or crooked teeth in photographs. Orthodontics helps you smile with more confidence.
Function also plays a big part in deciding whether orthodontics are worth it. If you have sticking out teeth caused by thumb sucking or tongue thrusting then this can cause a lisp when speaking. Also, your back teeth are designed to meet in a very specific manner, each part (cusp) of the tooth is designed to fit into the opposing tooth on the top or bottom. If they don’t meet together properly this can cause tension on the muscles around the face and jaw, causing headaches and leading to teeth grinding (bruxism).
How Much are Braces in Ireland?
Orthodontics prices will vary from practice to practice, some other things to watch out for are:
- How much experience does your Dublin orthodontist have?
- How many good reviews do they have on Facebook or Google?
- Which systems do they offer? If they only offer one type of brace then this is all you can have, it may not fit your lifestyle, time frame or budget.
- How do you wish to be treated when you are in the practice? Are you looking for a five-star service?
With all this in mind, here are some basic prices for braces:
- Orthodontic consultation – FREE
- Clear aligners from €1495
- Six-month braces from €2495
- Tooth coloured brackets from €3995

How to Claim Tax Back on Orthodontics
It is possible to claim non-routine dental treatments such as orthodontics, you will need to ensure that the dentist completes a Form Med 2 to claim form, this is simply a receipt for all of the dental work which the Revenue may ask to see.
The amount you are likely to get back in tax relief is calculated as a percentage of the expenses you have incurred. Generally speaking this is around 20% of the costs of any qualifying specialised treatment.
