Metal Braces & More

Most patients we treat at Texas Family Orthodontics choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.

While metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, you have several other options at our San Antonio and Windcrest offices.

After your first consultation, Dr. Vo will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.

Fixed Vs. Removable Appliances

It’s important to for patients in San Antonio and Windcrest to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Dr. Katie Vo attaches fixed appliances like braces directly to your teeth and they aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment.

Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily.

Aside from the obvious differences, Invisalign aligners are best at treating mild to moderate orthodontic problems at Texas Family Orthodontics. Fixed appliances are generally needed for more severe and comprehensive treatment.
