Types of Orthodontics Explained
At Kinsale Dental we are delighted to be able to offer our patients the full range of orthodontic services including Traditional Fixed Metal & Ceramic Braces, Cosmetic Braces and Removable Braces. The right option for your specific case will be determined by your dentist and based upon a couple of factors; time, cost and the severity of your smile misalignment.
This orthodontic treatment gently and gradually moves the teeth, straightening them and improving the way they look and function. It uses a combination of metal brackets and flexible wires. The metal brackets are very small and colours can be placed on the brackets for younger patients. It can help to give your child a great start in life, providing them with a beautiful smile that will help boost their confidence and self-esteem. In most cases children start treatment once they have all their adult teeth, usually around 11.
A revolutionary combination of proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials, and innovative thought – Six Month Smiles® utilises specialised clear braces to gently straighten and align teeth in an average time of just six months.
Six Month Smiles has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle. Here is what makes Six Month Smiles so innovative:
- Average treatment times of only six months
- Six Month Smiles Lucid-Lok™ clear brackets and tooth-colored wires are barely visible
- Six Month Smiles Patient Tray Kits™ ensure that your appointments are fast and comfortable
- Low forces and short overall treatment times increase comfort, safety, and hygiene
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners, that straightens your teeth with results you’ll notice sooner than you think. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into a straighter position step by step, until you have straighter tooth alignment and a smile to be proud of. The average Invisalign treatment takes about 12 months.

What Patients Say
I am absolutely delighted with the dental excellence you performed on my top teeth, and cannot thank you enough. You have given me back my smile and untold confidence when I speak, eat and smile. Not only that but my mouth feels so much more comfortable, which I didn’t expect as I was mostly concerned with the cosmetic look of them. You were professional, curtious and friendly and I felt totally confident in your abilities as a dental surgeon, I had no pain and throughout the 7 months it took, not at all concerned about what I was trying to achieve and I sincerely think that was due to your excellence,
This morning I turned up for an appointment with PJ, because of a broken tooth! An upper back molar with part of it missing. Ultimately the result of biting on the stone of an olive! I had hallucinations of losing it or having an implant or a bridge…. Instead PJ preserved it using a little pin and a lot of filling. I am both extraordinarily grateful & relieved.
PJ has looked after our family’s dental health for the last 15 years. We have had a variety of issues to address. Consistently PJ has been charming, relaxed, patient, reassuring & most importantly of all, competent. Today, as a result, I just can’t imagine going to any other dentist anywhere if I am honest!!
