EXPERIENCED, HIGHLY-SKILLED ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT
All brace treatments at Clontarf Orthodontics, Dublin 3 are performed by fully qualified, registered orthodontists who keep themselves abreast of all the latest technological advances in orthodontics.
Dr Shona Leydon at Clontarf Orthodontics Dublin 3, has a special interest in preventative and interceptive orthodontic treatments. The technological advances in orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning mean that early screening can unravel developing complex problems. It is essential to bring your child for an orthodontic assessment between the ages of 7 and 9 years of age to get the best and most stable results for your child.

Traditional Metal Braces
Metal braces are the most popular form of braces available today for our kids and teens. They are easier to clean and colours can be added to suit the patients’ personality. We use a variety of brace systems and our orthodontist will choose the braces that are most suitable to your needs. Some braces are”self-ligating” and work best without colours.
It is now possible to have virtually invisible brace treatment regardless of your age. Invisalign is one of the aligner systems we use. We design your treatment plan and provide you with a series of clear aligners custom made for you. These aligners gradually move your teeth into their ideal position. Retainers are then worn to hold your teeth in place.
Invisalign treatment is suitable for most adults. Payment plans are available from as little as 150 euro per month. For more information visit our Invisalign page.
Some adults are opting for braces on the inside of the teeth. The system we favour are Incognito™ . These are a bespoke appliance custom made in Germany from gold. They are the only truly invisible brace and are popular with some of our adult patients in Dublin.
Ceramic braces are now a popular choice for teens and adults patients of Clontarf Orthodontics in Dublin 3. They provide a discreet alternative to metal fixed braces. We use a number of different systems and will discuss with you which option best suits your needs.
Some braces can be removed from your mouth for cleaning and contact sports. Aligners, Expanders and Twin Block functional braces are varieties of these braces. Our specialist orthodontist in Clontarf will advise you if you are suitable for removable braces.
At Clontarf Orthodontics we believe that healthy teeth are just as important as straight teeth.
At your first appointment an assessment will be made regarding your dental hygiene and gum health. Orthodontic treatment will only be provided where oral health is optimal. This is because plaque in combination with acidic or sugary foods, if not properly washed away can cause demineralisation (brown spots) to develop on your teeth during your orthodontic treatment.
If you need a hygiene appointment prior to getting your brace fitted we will refer you back to your own dentist for the necessary treatments. Alternatively you can attend our hygienist for a cleaning appointment and oral hygiene advice.
During your orthodontic treatment we monitor your cleaning closely and advise you at every visit how you are doing. Regular professional cleanings are recommended during your treatment to ensure optimum aesthetics and dental health after your brace work is completed.
Our hygienists have many years experience working with adults and children wearing braces and would be delighted to offer you any oral health advice that you need.
Lovely people that helped me fix my smile.
All the procedures were thoroughly explained which was very helpful.
Emergency appointments for when the braces got loose or lost a bracket were set up immediately with no hassle.
Would highly recommend them for everyone

My daughter recently had her braces removed after two years of treatment and we're absolutely delighted with the results. The whole process was made so simple by Shona and her friendly staff. Thanks again.
Howth, Co Dublin
I have had all three of our children attend Clontarf Orthodontics (two of whom needed some advanced treatment). The professional treatment (and specifically the brilliant results), the courteous assistants and staff, the flexible appointment times and the pleasant surgery all made for a great experience which we would do again - despite the distance we had to travel! I would without hesitation recommend Shona for orthodontic treatment and care. The results of her work will be on the smiles of my children’s faces for a very long time.

I have been going to Clontarf Orthodontics over the last 8 years with my three children in turn. I can’t speak highly enough of the treatment we have received. Shona and her team are extremely professional and friendly, the practice is very well run, appointments generally run on time and nothing is ever a problem for them. All my boys have beautiful smiles now and we are delighted!

My 3 daughters have had work carried out by Shona and I'm delighted with the results. All of the staff are very efficient and extremely helpful. Shona took plenty of time to explain to each of my girls what she was doing and what the end result would be. I highly recommend Clontarf Orthodontics - you won't be disappointed.
