Reasons to Visit Our Orthodontists

Options for Every Patient

Orthodontic care can completely transform your smile in terms of both health and appearance. At Hulme Orthodontics, we create fully customized treatments using traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, and Invisalign. As specialists, Dr. Hulme and Dr. Ray use state-of-the-art materials and strategies for comfortable and efficient treatment resulting in an incredible new smile.

Flexible Appointment Hours

During each appointment, every patient meets directly with one of our orthodontists. To make treatment convenient for parents and children alike, we are open before and after school hours, as well as on many school holidays. Because we respect your busy schedule, the average time spent in our waiting room before an appointment is just four minutes.

Focused Treatments

While other dentists offer orthodontic treatments in addition to their other dental services, our orthodontists are board-certified specialists who have seven years of specialty training and focus solely on orthodontics. As a result, they are able to create customized treatment plans. They can also care for the most complex cases that other practices do not have the training or technology to handle.

Free Initial Consultations

Many patients who are unhappy with their teeth are hesitant to schedule an orthodontic evaluation due to cost concerns. At Hulme Orthodontics in San Antonio, TX, we offer free initial consultations to all patients. During your complimentary consultation, our orthodontists can evaluate your teeth, inform you about your treatment options, and provide estimated orthodontic treatment costs.

Life-Changing Results

Misaligned teeth can negatively affect your oral health and self-confidence at any age. Crooked or crowded teeth make it more difficult to brush and floss properly, increasing your risk of dental decay. Misaligned teeth can also prevent you from smiling or speaking freely in social and professional situations. Our orthodontists can help you achieve the beautiful smile you've always wanted, which can help you maintain healthy teeth and a higher sense of self-esteem.

Our orthodontists offer various orthodontic treatment options to meet your needs, goals, and budget. Dr. Hulme and Dr. Ray are board-certified orthodontists who focus solely on orthodontic care. They are members of various dental organizations, including:

Hulme Orthodontics is an amazing office! They go out of their way to have a relationship with their patients and their families. Every time we are there, they are so friendly, always smiling and asking how you’ve been or cracking jokes! They are affordable, they take the time to explain to you what is going on and how they plan to help, and they don’t make you feel silly for asking them to explain several times, like some doctors do. We have thoroughly enjoyed every visit and we trust what they are doing with our kids! It’s an amazing office very deserving of your business!

Orthodontists vs. Dentists What's the Difference?

On the surface, the two doctors may seem to perform similar services, especially with more and more dentists offering Invisalign and other orthodontic treatments. However, receiving treatment from an orthodontist rather than a dentist has advantages:

Orthodontists Have Additional Training

Both an orthodontist and a dentist attend dental school after undergraduate school. However, an orthodontist receives two to three extra years of training through an orthodontic residency program. 

More Customizable Solutions

Dentists may offer solutions for misaligned smiles, such as Invisalign or basic braces. However, the solutions are often not as customizable as an orthodontist can offer. An orthodontist can develop a treatment plan that works for your specific needs. 

Broader Experience With Malocclusion

Orthodontists like Drs. Hulme and Ray deal with various orthodontic problems since they specialize in orthodontic treatment. This wide range of experience allows them to help patients with more complex dental problems. 

Treating Adolescents and Adults 

When orthodontic care begins early, we can address issues early and help you avoid costly treatments down the line. Children can start receiving orthodontic care as early as eight years old, the typical age when they have several permanent teeth and their jaw reaches its maximum size.

However, braces and other orthodontic treatments are not just for adolescents. According to the American Association of Orthodontics

"1 out of every 5 orthodontic patients is an adult."
As specialists, Dr. Hulme and Dr. Ray have the tools and expertise necessary to handle almost any orthodontic issue, even those that are harder to treat in adults.

Backed by Advanced Technology 

Our practice is proud to offer some of the most advanced technology in San Antonio, TX, and throughout the state. To provide patients with the very best care, we have invested in various pieces of technology, including:

  • Digital X-Rays: We use digital X-rays to scan your teeth and jaws prior to orthodontic treatment. Unlike traditional X-rays, digital X-rays can be viewed immediately and do not expose patients to harmful radiation.
  • iTero® Digital Impressions: Most dentists take impressions of your teeth using goopy, uncomfortable putty impressions. At our San Antonio orthodontics offices, we use the iTero Digital Impression System to gather digital impressions of your teeth with a small wand-like device.

We Make Orthodontic Care More Affordable

We can help you mix and match our available financing options to suit your needs. Insurance can cover part or all of the cost of receiving orthodontic care from our practice, but the amount covered depends on your insurance plan. You can also break up payments into affordable monthly installments with CareCredit or receive discounts through Medicaid.
