We Offer Many Types of Braces in San Antonio, TX

At VK Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on offering a diverse range of orthodontic solutions tailored to meet the unique needs and preferences of our patients. We provide three primary types of braces: Damon™ Smiles, traditional braces and Invisalign® clear aligners. Each type has its own set of advantages, ensuring that every patient finds the perfect fit for their orthodontic journey.

The Different Types of Braces

Damon Smiles

Damon Smiles are a revolutionary departure from traditional braces. They utilize:

  • Self-Ligating Mechanism: Instead of elastic ties or bands, Damon Smiles feature a unique slide mechanism that holds the wires in place. This allows teeth to move with less friction and pressure.
  • Streamlined Design: This reduces the need for frequent adjustments and can lead to a shorter treatment duration.
  • Enhanced Comfort: The design minimizes discomfort and offers a more streamlined appearance than some traditional braces.

Traditional Braces

A classic and effective solution for straightening teeth. They utilize:

  • Metal Brackets and Wires: These braces consist of standard metal brackets affixed to the teeth with a wire threading through them, adjusted periodically to align the teeth.
  • Proven Reliability: Their long-standing presence in orthodontics is a testament to their effectiveness.
  • Customizable Bands: Younger patients can choose from various colorful bands for a unique and vibrant look.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

A modern approach to teeth straightening. They utilize:

  • Clear Aligner Trays: Invisalign consists of a series of custom-made clear plastic trays designed to incrementally adjust the position of the teeth.
  • Flexibility: These aligners are removable, allowing patients to eat and clean their teeth without any hindrance.
  • Discretion: Being nearly invisible, they provide a subtle treatment option, ideal for adults and teens who prefer a more discreet method.
