We do conventional orthodontics here as well as the Invisalign orthodontics. Orthodontics is the art and science of straightening teeth and there are a number of different devices that we can use it some of them are removable and some of them are fixed. The fixed ones are the wire, it's commonly referred to as the straight wire because you use a straight wire in little brackets that you place on each tooth that when the wire attempts to straighten itself back out moves the tooth into a straight alignment. It's classic orthodontics, it's probably the most common orthodontics done in the United States today but that's that's the conventional orthodontics. We've been doing that for 30 years, some of our patients that can't wear Invisalign will opt for that. We also do the Invisalign that's probably the most common orthodontics we do here since we do so many adults. They prefer not to be in braces because of their public interaction and you know maybe they're they're stationed life that they just don't want to be seen with the braces so they will opt for the more cosmetic or clear aligner and then we have several versions of that when it's done here called Invisi-brace and then there's clear correct and Invisalign. They're all clear aligner systems varying a little bit from one the other and that there are different options in that area and then on the far side of that, the originally removable orthodontics we have that available too, where we have small appliances that look kind of like retainers of the past that have little springs and screws and things like that that you can use to straighten teeth with. So there's a number of orthodontic options that we have here.
No matter what your orthodontic situation is, our San Antonio cosmetic dentists can straighten your teeth with orthodontic treatment and give you a dazzling smile. As San Antonio’s first and largest Elite Provider of Invisalign, our San Antonio dentist office can help you achieve the results you want with Invisalign braces.
Invisalign, just one of our dental procedures, is the amazing technology that replaces traditional metal braces as the go-to source for achieving a straighter smile. It consists of a series of clear, removable aligners.
These aligners allow you to straighten your teeth without changing your daily habits, and without anyone noticing! It’s absolutely amazing to see what Invisalign can do for you, and Invisalign has so many benefits over metal braces.

We Offer Four Types Of Braces
Cosmetic Dental Associates offers four types of braces.
Invisalign clear braces are a series of nearly invisible trays that use subtle pressure to guide your teeth to their rightful place. Remove the trays at meals, for special occasions, and at any other time, you deem necessary, as long as you wear them at least 20 hours a day. Invisalign braces are the orthodontics treatment that straightens your teeth without interrupting your lifestyle.
ClearCorrect is another clear braces option that also uses a series of aligners that are made right here in Texas. We also have our own in-house line of clear aligners called Invisabrace™. They can be provided to you in as little as one visit and are custom made in our lab.
Straight wire braces are also known as traditional metal braces. They use a metal wire and metal brackets to apply pressure to your teeth to move them into the proper position.

How Do Braces Work Versus Invisalign Invisible Braces?
Traditional metal braces use a system of brackets and wires paired with elastic bands to gently move your teeth over time. We use the wire and elastic bands to gently add pressure to the brackets that are bonded to the fronts of your teeth. This allows us to carefully guide your teeth into their correct position.
Invisalign braces from an Invisalign specialist work quite similarly, as the clear aligners are custom-formed to gently push the crowded or spaced teeth to their proper position over a significantly shorter period of time than metal braces.
The difference here really lies in the aesthetics of the Invisalign clear braces and the convenience they offer, with a shorter time frame until your teeth are straightened and fewer visits to the office during the treatment. Hear some of our patients talk about their orthodontic experience in the video gallery below.
We’ll Meet Your Orthodontic Needs
Dr. John A. Moore has 35 years of dental experience. He has treated orthodontic patients at both ends of the spectrum, from mild cosmetic treatment requiring short-term orthodontics to straighten a crooked smile, to severe malocclusion that requires more extensive treatment to correct a bad bite. Cosmetic dentists can handle the following types of malocclusions:
- Class 1 – The bite is unaffected, but your teeth are crowded, turned at odd angles, or simply crooked.
- Class 2 – Often referred to as having buck teeth or an overbite. Also called overjet or deep bite, a Class 2 is when your upper teeth extend beyond the lower.
- Class 3 – An underbite, which means that the lower teeth extend beyond the upper.
