We offer patients all the benefits of the most technologically advanced, efficient, and effective orthodontic treatments and appliances, including:

Traditional Metal Braces

At Brazos Valley Orthodontics, we take pride in our traditional metal braces, a timeless and effective solution for straightening teeth and correcting bite issues. These braces are designed for durability and efficiency, ensuring a smoother path towards achieving a perfect smile.

Even though there are other options, traditional braces reign supreme, producing better results in correcting a wide array of orthodontic issues. Our team, serving both College Station and Caldwell, utilizes the latest techniques and technology to customize the treatment for each patient, guaranteeing comfort and satisfaction throughout the orthodontic journey.

Ceramic Braces

For those seeking a less noticeable alternative to metal braces, Brazos Valley Orthodontics offers ceramic braces as an aesthetically pleasing option. Crafted from composite materials, these braces blend seamlessly with the natural color of your teeth, providing a discreet way to achieve your orthodontic goals. This treatment option is excellent at balancing aesthetics with the effectiveness of traditional braces to deliver the best possible outcomes.

Lingual Braces

For the ultimate in discreet orthodontic treatment, Brazos Valley Orthodontics provides lingual braces, which are attached to the back side of the teeth, completely hiding them from view. This sophisticated treatment option combines the effectiveness of traditional braces with the added benefit of being out of sight to others.

Dr. Gary Gardner specializes in this intricate technique, ensuring each appliance is customized to the unique contours of the patient's teeth, providing both comfort and exceptional results. With locations in College Station and Caldwell, we are dedicated to offering cutting-edge solutions to meet the diverse needs of our patients.

Invisalign® Treatment

This innovative clear aligner system is a virtually invisible solution to straighten your teeth without the need for wires or brackets. Ideal for adults and teens alike, Invisalign allows for a more flexible lifestyle while on the path to a beautiful smile. Our orthodontist is an expert in customizing Invisalign treatments, utilizing 3D technology to craft a series of clear aligners that are both comfortable and effective, ensuring your journey to a perfect smile is as seamless as possible.

Invisalign offers more freedom in many ways, as there are no food restrictions and you are able to pursue any whitening treatments that interest you. However, the removable aligners also require strict patient complience to achieve a timely final result, and certain orthodontic problems may not be eligible for correction through Invisalign.

Two-Phase Treatment

At Brazos Valley Orthodontics, we understand that early intervention can lead to more effective orthodontic outcomes. That's why we offer two-phase treatment, a specialized approach that addresses the structural development of a child's jaw and teeth in two stages. This method allows our orthodontist and his team to guide jaw growth, correct alignment issues, and reduce the need for tooth removal or more invasive treatments later on. Our commitment is to provide comprehensive care that ensures the healthiest smile from childhood through adulthood.


After the active phase of orthodontic treatment comes an essential step: retention. At Brazos Valley Orthodontics, we emphasize the importance of this phase to ensure the stability and longevity of your newly aligned smile. Our orthodontist designs custom retention plans tailored to each patient's specific needs, utilizing retainers that are both effective and comfortable.

Our retainers are designed to maintain the position of your teeth after braces or Invisalign treatment, preventing them from shifting back to their original position, as long as they are worn as directed. With a commitment to long-term oral health and aesthetics, our team at both College Station and Caldwell locations guides each patient through the retention phase, ensuring your beautiful smile lasts a lifetime.

Emergency Orthodontic Care

We know that orthodontic emergencies can happen at any time, and Brazos Valley Orthodontics is here to help when they do. Whether it's a broken bracket, a loose wire, or discomfort, our team is ready to provide quick assistance and relief. With locations in College Station and Caldwell, we offer prompt and efficient emergency care to address any urgent orthodontic needs, ensuring our patients continue their treatment with minimal interruption and maximum comfort.
