It’s Never Too Late for a Confident Smile

Reasons for Adult Orthodontics in San Antonio & Windcrest
Today, adults make up about one in every five orthodontic patients. Here’s why:
Orthodontic treatment can help correct crooked teeth or spaces that you’ve been self-conscious about for years.
It can give you the confidence and pride that come with straight teeth and a great smile.
Your Teeth Can Shift
Believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving in adolescence. Teeth that seemed straight and aligned in youth could have shifted later in life.
This can lead to jaw pain, trouble brushing, or a smile you’re unhappy with.
Maintaining Dental Health
If you leave misaligned teeth untreated, you may end up with other dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease.
You may also notice difficulty chewing or abnormal wear on the surface of your teeth.
Conditions We Can Treat
Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for teenagers. In fact, anyone can benefit from orthodontic treatment. Not only can you improve the look of your smile, but you can also remedy problems causing you pain, discomfort, or difficulty eating.
Orthodontic treatment can repair any of the following condition:
- Top teeth that aren’t properly aligned with bottom teeth (also referred to as “cross-bite”)
- Top and bottom teeth that don’t completely meet (also referred to as “open bite”)
- Top teeth that cover portions of the bottom teeth (also referred to as “overbite”)
- Top teeth that protrude out (also referred to as “overjet”)
- Bottom teeth that cover portions of the top teeth (also referred to as “underbite”)
Alternative Orthodontic Treatments
We totally understand that most adults don’t really have an interest in wearing metal braces for an extended period. It’s one thing if you’re a teen, but it can be embarrassing to wear old fashioned braces as an adult.
If you’re hesitant to get the care you need because of the fear of embarrassment, you’ll be happy to know that there are several different alternatives that Dr. Vo offers to her patients.
From clear braces to nearly invisible aligner trays, orthodontic treatment does have to include old fashioned metal braces.
