Adult Braces

While orthodontics are most often recommended to adolescents with misaligned teeth, adults can also benefit from this treatment. However, we understand that wearing braces as an adult can often leave you feeling self-conscious. To minimize this discomfort, our orthodontists offer more discreet alternatives to traditional metal braces. While the most popular of these is Invisalign, you can also choose clear braces or braces that are attached to the inside of your teeth, rather than facing outwards.


As an alternative to traditional orthodontic options, Invisalign is designed to deliver aesthetic results in a way that does not require securing metal hardware to your teeth. Rather than metal wires and brackets, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten the teeth. These not only offer a more discreet treatment, but also a more comfortable and convenient one. The aligners are made of a smooth plastic that does not irritate soft tissues and can be removed for meals. Although not as suited to severe cases of bite misalignment as braces, Invisalign offers aesthetically pleasing results for many of us who desire a straighter smile. 

AcceleDent & Propel

Traditional orthodontics can sometimes take a frustratingly long time to deliver results. To speed up this process while still providing quality outcomes, our orthodontists offer accelerated dental treatment with AcceleDent and Propel at our offices in Grants, Los Lunas, and Albuquerque, NM.

Acceledent is a fast, comfortable at-home treatment that can help you complete orthodontic therapy 40 percent faster. Essentially a vibrating aligner, this dental device is worn for just 20 minutes a day and is designed to be both comfortable and easy-to-use.

Similarly, Propel is an in-office treatment that can enhance the effects of orthodontics for particularly stubborn teeth or your entire smile.

Learn more about how these options can give you a straighter smile in significantly less time.

Top Notch Professionals

I just finished my treatment and love my smile. I was reluctant to get braces but decided to go with Haltom Orthodontics after much research. I really like the small office environment. The staff at Haltom are top notch professionals. their friendly staff always made me feel comfortable. I highly recommend Haltom for anyone looking for a improved smile. Jesse L.

Financial Options

One of the biggest barriers to orthodontics many patients face is cost. However, we strongly believe that every person who needs treatment should have access to it. 

In order to make dentistry treatment as affordable as possible, we offer payment plans with interest-free financing. We also partner with Smiles Change Lives in Albuquerque, NM, so that children who would not otherwise have access to braces or other orthodontic options can still get the treatment they need.
