Adult Orthodontic Treatment

Professional Orthodontic Treatment for Adults

s-bracesPeople go without visiting an orthodontist in Vienna during their teenage years for many reasons, but that doesn't mean they lose their chance at a healthier and more gorgeous smile. In fact, about one-quarter of the patients at DN Orthodontics, formerly known as Denise Nguyen Orthodontics, are adults! If you are interested in improving your smile, we can help.

Our Orthodontic Services

Our services cover a variety of oral health needs that range from slight crookedness to severe misalignment. For some people, the answer is traditional metal braces. However, Dr. Nguyen also specializes in Invisalign treatments. These clear aligners help to straighten teeth with less severe misalignments, and because they are removable, are often considered more convenient to use. Invisalign has several other benefits as well:

  • Clear and discreet
  • Easier to brush and floss
  • More comfortable than metal treatment options
  • Double as a nightguard
  • Can act as a buffer for people who already had braces but need a bit more treatment
  • Trimmed to fit the specific shape of your gum line
  • No bad-tasting molds are required for fitting purposes

Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment

For many people, the biggest benefit of receiving orthodontic treatment as an adult is creating a more beautiful smile and, in turn, more confidence. However, straightening misaligned teeth also has health benefits. Misaligned teeth can lead to shifting that causes tooth decay and eventually, loss of the gum and bone around the tooth. Finally, since most adults are better at sticking to their treatment plans, the length of the treatment is often less than it is for teenagers. This means less money spent on treatment and fewer hours away from work to sit in the orthodontist's chair.
