Adult Orthodontic Treatment

Many adults incorrectly assume that orthodontic treatment only applies to children and teens

However, that is far from the truth. No matter your age, you must see a licensed professional for treatment if you are dealing with an untreated orthodontic problem. 

Smiles Orthodontics is a locally-owned El Paso practice providing orthodontic treatment for adults. With decades of experience, Dr. Menendez wants nothing more than to have you leave her office feeling confident in your teeth and smiling ear-to-ear!

Why adults visit our orthodontist?


Crooked Teeth

Misaligned teeth are among the most common reasons adults seek out our El Paso orthodontist. A misaligned tooth can lead to issues chewing and speaking, causing significant pain and discomfort.


Deep Bite (Overbite)

Orthodontists will diagnose you with a deep bite if your top row of teeth excessively overlap your bottom teeth. Usually, the cause of overbite is that your lower jaw is smaller than your upper jaw — severe cases typically cause wear of the surface behind the upper teeth and or wear of the gum area.


Anterior Crossbite

Anterior crossbite, or underbite, occurs when your upper and lower teeth do not align, with the bottom teeth appearing in front of the upper teeth. Typically, genetic flaws are the culprit for cases of crossbite in adults.


How we help ?


Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are the solution that can help you remedy most of the above problems. Dr. Menendez creates custom-made trays that seamlessly blend in with the rest of your teeth — doing so eliminates the insecurity of wearing noticeable brackets that draw attention in public. Invisalign and other clear aligner brands will straighten your teeth, creating a more attractive smile.


Metal Braces

Metal braces are an excellent option for adults looking for an affordable and convenient way to correct teeth misalignment. These braces are bracket-shaped, come from a thin metal sheet, and attach to the teeth through adhesives. Braces adjust to your teeth’s natural alignment and help straighten them over time.


Ceramic Brackets

Ceramic braces come with several benefits for adult patients. For starters, they are less noticeable than metal braces, eliminating the self-consciousness you may have with traditional brackets. And they work as efficiently as regular metal brackets.
