Dr. Ortega is proud to be able to offer Invisalign for teens in the San Diego area.

WHAT IS INVISALIGN TEEN?

Invisalign Teen invisible braces vs metal braces with a San Diego dentistInvisalign Teen aligners are made using the same technology as regular Invisalign aligners. They do, however, have a few special features because teens and their mouths are still growing. Invisalign Teen aligners include blue wear-indicators that start out blue and fade to clear. They provide a visual cue for the teen, the parent, and the doctor that it is time for the next tray of aligners when the blue disappears.

Invisalign Teen also has special features designed into the aligners that compensate for the eruption of canines, second premolars and second molars. Best of all, with Invisalign Teen invisible braces, you receive six free individual replacement aligners in case any get lost or misplaced.
