For Children (age7-10) 

The American Association of Orthodontists recommended that a child’s initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at age 7. An examination can anticipate the most advantageous time to begin the orthodontic treatment 

For Teens (age11-18) 

The teenage years are often the optimal time to correct orthodontic problems and achieve excellent results when the patient is still growing. Orthodontic problems can be corrected far more easily when discovered and treated early, thereby providing the patient with a) the additional benefit of suffering less orthodontic-related problems later in life and b) incurring lower costs (compared to the what the potential amount spent correcting future issues might have been).  

Additionally, teenagers with an unattractive smile may suffer from self-consciousness and low self-esteem. Dunboyne Braces can help rectify this problem—nobody need hide their smile again!  

For Adults 

Despite childhood being perceived as the optimum time, it is never too late to have orthodontic treatment. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age. For some adults, orthodontic treatment is needed prior to tooth restorations such as crowns, bridges and implants. Dr Mary Ngeh and Dr GeorgesTakla will work with you and your dentist to restore your smile to the best it can be. 

‘Six month smiles’ is also available for some adults with minor cosmetic issues, which can be treated with clear braces for 6-9months. 

Corrective Jaw surgery (Orthognathic Surgery) 

Orthognathic surgery corrects the jaw, improves facial profile and corrects orthodontic problems that cannot be easily treated with braces alone. Dr Mary Ngeh and Dr GeorgesTakla have years of experience in treating such complex cases, being based in Our Lady’s Hospital in Navan and St James Hospital in Dublin respectively.  

Orthognathic surgery may be unnecessary if orthodontic treatment is started early while a child is still growing.
