    Braces Confidence

    The teenage years can be a traumatic time in the life of your child. Kids can feel under pressure to take perfect selfies, have flawless skin, and maintain model-like figures.


    Many children who have noticeably crooked or unevenly spaced teeth, might suffer from harassment and low self-esteem.


    Parents have several options:



    How does your smile make you feel?


    Many teenagers feel self-conscious about their teeth and equally stressed about having treatment.

    If you decide to have a traditional brace,  brackets and wires can sometimes initially irritate mouths, although patients acclimatise to them very quickly. Some initial compromises need to be made until you are used to  the brace in your mouth; for example, playing a wind instrument might be uncomfortable initially, some foods such as sticky or crunchy foods need to be avoided etc.


    However, there is a new option, Invisalign Teen, that has recently been launched internationally.

    Dr. Crotty is Ireland’s leading Invisalign Teen provider.

    Invisalign Teen

    Invisalign Teen’s clear plastic aligners are pretty much invisible and are removable, unlike traditional braces.


    Invisalign teen has many benefits for your child:

    • Carry on playing contact sports such as rugby or hurling
    • No restrictions on diet
    • No pictures with a mouth full of metal!
    • You can clean your teeth and gums as per normal

    • The aligners don’t break, so no emergencies
    • Easy to clean your teeth
