When you’re deciding which orthodontic treatment to pursue for straight and a healthy smile, it should be a great relief to know that there are many options. Each treatment option has it’s own pros and cons. Take a look at this breif breakdown to decide which treatment best suits you and your lifestyle.
Traditional Braces – are the most noticeable braces. They’re made of metal brackets and wires. They are extremely affordable and obviously very effective as they’ve been around for so long.
Clear Braces – use the same technology as traditional braces, however the brackets are made of clear ceramic. They’re just as durable and equally as effective as traditional braces, yet they blend in with teeth much better.
Invisalign – is the most modern approach to straightening teeth. They’re plastic trays that are customized to your teeth. They gradually move your teeth where they need to be. Every two weeks you switch them out and your treatment continues right along. You can remove these to eat and they’re virtually invisible.
Lingual Braces – are the least visible option available because they’re placed behind your teeth. They are just as effective as traditional braces but nobody will ever know you’re going through treatment.
When choosing your orthodontic treatment, it’s important to know your options. At Ortega Orthodontics we know having many is important, and if you have any questions about what we think the best treatment option based on your circumstances would be, give us a call today.

Are you interested in improving the aesthetics of your smile by closing small gaps or correcting minor crowding in your teeth? Invisalign is a state-of-the-art orthodontic treatment method, intended to straighten teeth when no jaw correction is required. Invisalign offers a very different orthodontic treatment experience over traditional braces.
Should you be a candidate for Invisalign, there are several benefits to choosing Invisalign:
- The clear aligners are close to invisible
- The aligners are smooth and comfortable
- The aligners are easily removed for eating and cleaning
- There are no food limitations
- Invisalign requires shorter appointments
- There is a longer period of time between required appointments
At Ortega Orthodontics we take pride in serving as your resource for Invisalign in Jacksonville. If you’re interested in a slight tweak of your smile, then we encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Holland to discuss your available treatment options.

At Ortega Orthodontics we are proud to be your Invisalign Jacksonville FL resource. If your smile could use some minor adjustments then consider speaking with Dr. Holland or Dr. Schellhase about the option of Invisalign orthodontic treatment.
If your smile is in need of a little tweaking, then Invisalign may be the option for you. Invisalign offers a nearly invisible form of orthodontic treatment for straighter teeth. The clear, plastic aligners replace the wires, brackets and bands of traditional braces and allow for a more comfortable and convenient treatment process. Invisalign provides shorter and less frequent visits to the office. You will wear a set of aligners for approximately two weeks before discarding and putting in the next set. Another benefit of Invisalign is that the aligners are removable, eliminating food restrictions during treatment.
If you’re interested in straightening your teeth with Invisalign technology, please contact the Ortega Orthodontics office today. We look forward to making your teeth something to smile about.
