Invisalign and Braces (Orthodontics)
Get a straighter smile with Invisalign or traditional braces.
Braces are a type of dental appliance that helps correct teeth alignment. They work by attaching to the teeth and using adjustable pressure to slowly move them into the correct position.
Invisalign is a clear retainer mould that adjusts the position of your teeth incrementally. At Ventana Family Dental, we offer both options and go on the journey with you from installation to realignments with the destination being the smile of your dreams.
Traditional braces have been in use for decades and are a budget friendly option. They aren't removable so require regular cleaning and removal of food.
Invisalign - Invisible Braces
Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners to move teeth. The aligners are made of plastic and are custom-made to fit each patient's teeth. They are worn for about two weeks at a time, and patients can remove them to eat, drink, and brush their teeth.
