Orthodontic treatment for adults often results in better, longer-lasting results than treatment received at an earlier age, simply because adults are more likely to comply with directions and necessary follow-up instructions and care. And with so many orthodontic appliances available today, adults have many types of braces from which to choose.

Adult Treatment Options at Your San Antonio Orthodontist

Knowing that every patient has their own orthodontic needs, desires and personal preferences, Dr. Bebe offers her adult patients many choices in orthodontic appliances including modern metal braces, clear ceramic braces, self-ligating braces, and clear aligners.

San Antonio Invisalign Treatment for Adults

Many of the adults we see choose to be treated with the very innovative and convenient Invisalign system. This is a treatment method consisting of a series of finely calibrated, custom-made, clear aligner trays which fit snugly over the teeth to gradually move the teeth into proper alignment. Using no metal wires or brackets, Invisalign comfortably and discreetly improves a smile and it works just as well (or even better in some cases), as conventional braces. When you’re wearing Invisalign, you can smile with complete confidence for the duration of your treatment process as most people will not even notice you have the aligners in.

Benefits of Adult Orthodontic Treatment

The most obvious benefit of undergoing orthodontic treatment as a adult is the improved appearance of your smile. But the benefits don’t stop there! You can also enjoy the following benefits when you undergo treatment as an adult:

  • Better Self Confidence – Having a beautiful smile can do wonders for your self-confidence! Knowing your teeth are aligned properly can help you both socially and professionally as you never have to hide your smile when spending time around others.
  • Improved Oral Hygiene – It is far easier to brush and floss teeth which are properly aligned so you can avoid common problems like cavities and gum disease.
  • Improved Dental Function – Orthodontic treatment can improve the function of your jaw and help you chew food more effectively by enhancing how your upper and lower teeth bite together.
