Orthodontics, More Than Just Braces
Orthodontist in San Antonio, TX, Offers a Variety of Options for Straighter Teeth
While many orthodontists offer only traditional braces in San Antonio, our orthodontists at Tran Dental provide a wide variety of orthodontic services to help your smile look its best!
Crooked teeth are a major cosmetic issue, as tilted, turned, crowded, or gapped teeth can detract from the natural beauty of your smile. Crooked teeth can also make it difficult to clean between teeth, and this can lead to gum disease and tooth decay.

Metal wire and bracket braces are still widely used to straighten teeth. The wires create tension that pulls on the brackets, which are cemented to the teeth. The tension gradually pulls the top of the teeth, known as the crowns, towards their optimal position in the mouth. The process typically takes about 24 months; because it is a lengthy process, traditional braces requires several trips to the orthodontist’s office.
Traditional braces effectively straighten teeth, but many find the wires and brackets unattractive, uncomfortable or simply not for them. To help these patients achieve their optimal smiles, our orthodontist in San Antonio offers other orthodontic services.
