Here is more information on two of the core ortho services patients have trusted us to provide them with for decades:

Braces In Houston TX

Braces are an affordable time-tested method of providing you or your children with solutions to issues like overlapping teeth, overcrowded teeth and improper alignment between your top and bottom rows of teeth.

There are various types of braces available based on patient’s needs and interests. we’re proud to offer the following types:

Traditional Metal Braces

These are the most common types of braces available to orthodontists and thanks to modern dental technology, are now more comfortable than ever!

These stainless steel braces work by levering brackets and archwires to comfortably shift teeth into their proper positions over a period of time.

At James May Orthodontics, we allow patients to customize their brackets with different colors which can make for a fun and decorative experience. Alliteratively, you’re welcome to opt for a more discreet, uniform bracket style.

Self-Ligating Braces

Self-ligating braces are similar to traditional braces in that they’re made out of the same materials, however, these braces do not require elastics.

What that means for you is fewer visits to our Houston, Texas office for adjustments and less pressure put on your teeth as they shift which means higher levels of comfort!

Self-ligating technology is available for both traditional stainless-steel braces and clear braces.

Clear Braces

One of the main concerns when wearing braces is the temporary cosmetic attention they can attract to the wearer.

Clear braces can be an excellent remedy to that problem for people looking for a cost-effective way to be as discreet as possible while receiving orthodontic treatment from the office of Dr. James W. May.

Clear braces leverage ceramic as one of their core materials which is clear and therefore less prominent than the stainless-steel brackets that come with traditional braces.



Our office in Houston, Texas office is proud to offer patients Invisalign.

Invisalign is an invisible aligner custom created for your specific needs via 3d computer imaging technology and is proven 100% effective in providing patients with the custom smile they are looking for.

Invisalign is removable during eating, brushing and any other activities where you feel they may impede your abilities.

Invisalign has no metal wires or brackets which means patients experience a much higher level of comfort while receiving orthodontic care. Also, Invisalign requires fewer adjustments than traditional braces which means less time visiting the orthodontist and more time showing off your incredible smile.
