Orthodontic treatment in San Antonio

Metal Braces

One of the most common types of braces. They are popular among adolescents and can be customized with various colors to create a unique smile. Metal braces are made of high-quality stainless steel brackets that attach to your teeth and are connected by archwires. These molded metal brackets, in combination with the archwire, which is bent to represent your ideal bite, use pressure to gently move your teeth into the desired position. It also represents how we want you to approach your therapy. The wire threads through the brackets and puts more pressure on your teeth as it attempts to return to its original shape

Aligners/ Invisalign

Clear aligners are often referred to as invisible braces. These are clear plastic trays that align over your teeth like a glove. They apply gentle pressure to your teeth to move them into the proper positions and straighten your grin. You can take out the aligners to eat, brush, or floss, but they must be worn for at least 22 hours per day to be effective.


You should love your smile and Dr. Garcia wants to help you achieve your dental goals! Braces  will help you regain your confidence! Our team at South Flores San Antonio looks forward to meeting you and remember we always offer complimentary consultations. Please give us a call today. 210-225-3333

The Best Place to Get Dental Work Done in San Antonio

Nowadays, maintaining healthy oral care is crucial in the junk food era. If you’re obsessive about junk, sugary drinks, and foods, you can’t ignore the health of your teeth. Such bad habits may lead to cavities and tooth decay. To prevent these problems, you have to follow good habits to maintain your beautiful smile for years.

These good habits are as follows:

  • Clean teeth twice a day
  • Floss and rinse your mouth with mouthwash (non-alcoholic)
  • Stay away from junk food, sugary food, and drinks
  • Eat health food like vegetables, fruits, low-fat dairy food, whole grains, and protein
  • And most important, visit your dentist every 6 months for dental checkups and cleaning
  • With taking good at-home dental care, you should visit your dentist for regular dental checkups to prevent future dental problems.

What services do dentists provide?


It is a branch of dentistry in which an orthodontist corrects and treats malpositioned teeth and jaws. The orthodontist fixes crooked teeth and wide gaps between teeth and improves biting habits. He will treat your teeth and gum for their long-term good health. He will use devices like braces, aligners, lip/cheek bumper, retainer, and splints to improve the abnormal alignment of the teeth and jaws.

Sedation Dentistry or Sleep Dentistry

In this branch, a dentist relaxes their anxious patients with the help of sedatives during or before dental procedures. Most patients fear dental treatments, so a dentist uses sedatives or drugs to make them half-conscious or full conscious. Sedation can be used from basic dental cleaning to advanced dental surgeries.

Types of Sedation:

  • Minimal sedation – Dentists ask their patients to inhale nitrox oxide, aka laughing gas, to relax them during treatments. Also, in some cases, they ask their patients to take oral sedatives like Diazepam or Halcion. In this type of sedation, patients are half-awakened during dental treatments.Moderate sedation – This type of sedation is also called conscious sedation in which patients stay awake but don’t remember their treatments.Deep sedation – Though the patient can be almost unconscious in this treatment but can be fully aware of the dental procedure.IV sedation or General Anesthesia – In this sedation treatment, the patient becomes deeply asleep and unaware of his/her surroundings until it wears off. The dentist injects IV drugs through the patient’s veins.

Dental Implants

Dental implants mean artificial teeth roots that can be fixed in a patient’s jawbone. These artificial teeth roots take the place of missing teeth. Dental implants give their patients new confidence who have lost their tooth/teeth. They can eat the food they love and smile with improved facial features and maintained jawbones.

In dental implant treatments, patients can replace their teeth with implants, crowns, bridges, full bridges, or full dentures. These replacements are dependent upon the accountability of missing teeth.
