Invisalign® is available for both teens and adults.

Basics of Invisalign®:

Invisalign® has created a modern customized approach to straightening teeth. No more wires, brackets, and bands! These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth

Because there are no wires to change or tie in, the appointments are generally much quicker, and most of the time they can be scheduled with a longer interval between appointments. This means shorter appointments, less appointments, and overall less interruption in your day to day routine! Making Invisalign® the perfect choice for the busy parent or teen

Because you can take the aligners out when you need to, there are no food restrictions! so you can eat all the nuts and apples you want. You just have to remember to keep the aligners in for at least 22 hours per day for maximum effectiveness.


Also, at Ortega Orthodontics, with the new iTero scanner, there is no need for those yucky impressions. The teeth are captured with a small camera and turned into a digital model which is used to plan your treatment. This is actually more accurate and faster than the old putty impressions we used for years!
