Orthosnap in Vista

What is Orthosnap?

Orthosnap is a custom-made, clear dental aligner that straightens your smile by applying gentle, consistent pressure to the teeth over time. This removable appliance offers discreet visibility, a comfortable fit, and a seamless appearance. Orthosnap doesn't use 3D printing to create the trays, making it more precise and affordable than other aligner options. Patients experiencing mild to severe misalignment cases can get the smile of their dreams in less time with Orthosnap.

How it works: The Orthosnap process

dentist icon


To see if Orthosnap is the best fit for your smile, the dentist will examine your gum health and teeth to check for gaps, misalignment, and crowding. At this time, your dentist will outline a custom treatment plan that fulfills your smile goals.

Impressions and Digital Imaging

Your Vista dentist will take a mold of your teeth, known as an impression, along with a series of digital images of your mouth. Then, your dentist will ship the photographs and impressions to the OrthoSnap processing facility, where your first several sets of individual aligners will be produced.

Fitting and Next Steps

After receiving your aligners, your dentist will ensure they fit properly. You’ll wear each set per the dentist’s instructions, usually for 20-22 hours each day, and switch them out every 2 weeks. Every 6 weeks, you’ll stop by our office to pick up your next few sets of aligners. At this time, the dentist will check your teeth to make sure they’re tracking for a strong, straight smile. 

Issues Orthosnap can correct

View our services


Sometimes your upper front teeth overlap with your lower front teeth. This is called an overbite, and this occurs in most people. It becomes a problem when the overbite is too large. If you have too deep a bite, your teeth may wear down or you could suffer from jaw pain. Orthosnap can fix an overbite or deep bite, and get your teeth in a healthier position.


An underbite is when your lower front teeth are in front of your upper front teeth. The problem often lies in the position of the jaw; the lower jaw being too far forward. This misplacement can make it hard to chew and speak properly, and may cause wear and tear to the teeth. Orthosnap can fix mild to severe cases of underbites to ensure a healthy, pleasing smile.


Normally, the upper front teeth sit in front of the lower front teeth. Crossbites occur when a few of your upper teeth sit behind your lower teeth. This can cause your teeth to wear down or chip, and may also cause gum recession, which can lead to painful gum problems or even bone loss. Orthosnap can fix some crossbites, but it’s best to have a consultation with your doctor to see which options are right for you.

Gap Teeth

Gaps between teeth are fairly common, but these extra spaces can create pockets between the teeth and gums where food can get trapped. These spaces can harbor bacteria which can make your gums tender and sore and even lead to gum disease. Orthosnap can fix gaps between teeth and give you a straighter, more seamless smile. 

Open Bite

Usually the upper and lower front teeth touch when the mouth is closed. When they don’t, it’s called an open bite. This can make it difficult to chew properly or bite into certain foods effectively. Orthosnap can adjust the bite, so all teeth sit straight and as they naturally should. 

Crowded Teeth

Crowding happens when there’s not enough room in the jaw for your teeth to sit straight. As a result, they bunch up, overlap and twist, sometimes getting pushed in front of or behind others. Crowded teeth can make oral care routines, like brushing and flossing difficult. When teeth aren’t cleaned properly, it’s easier for plaque, tartar, and harmful bacteria to build up. Over time, this can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Plus, crowding can get worse as the teeth naturally shift inward. Orthosnap can fix severe cases of crowded teeth to create a healthy, aligned smile.

How do Orthosnap aligners work?

Orthosnap aligners are custom-made trays that apply subtle pressure to your teeth, gradually pushing them into a healthy, straight position over time. Each Orthrosnap tray is crafted to bring your teeth closer to its final, true alignment. The trays are replaced every two weeks until your smile is straight and you have reached your desired results.

Is Orthosnap safe?

Orthosnap is completely safe to wear. All Orthosnap aligners are FDA approved and made of medical-grade BPA-free clear plastic, which means that they are both safe and comfortable to wear.

Is Orthosnap faster than traditional braces?

While time frames vary based on each individual patient’s needs, Orthosnap is known to provide quicker results than traditional braces. This is because aligners gently push on all teeth as a whole, whereas braces pull each tooth individually. In order to achieve the results you are looking for, it is crucial to follow your dentist’s instructions for wearing your custom-made Orthosnap aligners.

How is Orthosnap different from other clear aligners?

arrow icon

More than any other aligner option, Orthosnap’s patented process causes the aligner to apply an even pressure across the entire surface area of the tooth. This produces a highly efficient and effective corrective process for nearly any type of misalignment. As a result, the patient can enjoy better, faster results with fewer treatment steps.

Orthosnap offers a precise fit that doesn’t snap into place, but rather snugly fits right into the patient’s gumline. In addition, Orthosnap uses a revolutionary 3D printing processor to create highly accurate, affordable aligners that blend seamlessly into the patient’s smile. Unlike other aligners, the OrthoSnap treatment plan can be corrected and adjusted midcourse to ensure the patient gets the straight smile they deserve. No matter the misalignment case, Orthosnap can produce picture-perfect results and finish treatment in less time than traditional braces or other aligner brands. 

How much does Orthosnap cost?

arrow icon

By offering a “Step Pricing” model, Orthosnap allows you to only pay for the aligners you use. This makes it one of the most reliable and affordable aligners on the market today.

With that being said, the cost of Orthosnap is different for each patient. Factors that may affect the cost of your Orthosnap include number of appointments and visits, insurance type, overall treatment time, and more. The best way to find out how much you’ll pay for Orthosnap is to schedule a consultation with your dentist.
