Adult Treatment Vs. Pediatric Treatment In San Antonio

With a wide variety of braces, like Incognito Braces and Invisalign aligners, it’s no wonder so many adults are choosing South Texas Orthodontics to perfect their smiles! While orthodontic treatment is suitable for patients of all ages, there are a few fundamental differences between adult treatments, and treatments for children:

Differences In The Jaw & Teeth

There are a few physical differences between adults and children that affect how orthodontic treatment works! In an adult, the jaw is no longer developing or growing, making it impossible to change the actual structure of the jaw. When adults need orthodontic treatment to correct crooked or misaligned teeth, orthognathic surgery may be necessary (in conjunction with adult braces) in order to properly straighten the teeth and jaws.

Differences In The Gums

Whether you’re a child, teenager, or an adult, your gums must be healthy before orthodontic treatment can start, as braces or aligners put constant pressure on the teeth to prompt them to move through the gum tissue. While kids generally have healthy gums, many adults have some form of gum disease present, making it difficult to initiate the treatment process. If you’re an adult who wants to start treatment at South Texas Orthodontics and you have any sign of gum disease, you’ll have to improve the health of your gums before you can start wearing braces or utilize Invisalign clear braces.

Faster Treatment Times In Schertz, TX

On average, adults are usually more cooperative than kids! Whether it’s staying on top of making orthodontic appointments, or following directions about caring for their teeth and braces perfectly, this good patient compliance helps make the adult treatment process smoother and faster at South Texas Orthodontics.
