For teens, the idea of undergoing orthodontic treatment may be a stressful prospect. No one wants to look at photos of their teenage-era summer vacation, cousin’s graduation party, or everyday Instagram candids and feel self-conscious about their smiles. Fortunately, traditional metal braces are no longer the only option for teenage orthodontic treatment; now there’s Invisalign Teen.
Castilla Orthodontics in Salem, OR offers their patients treatment with Invisalign Teen, a custom solution just for teens that is more comfortable and less obvious than traditional braces and is equally effective in most cases. If you or your child is interested in this treatment, read these important points from Dr. Ana Castilla:
A series of clear, plastic aligner trays that are custom made to fit over the teeth. They work in the same way as traditional braces do to gently move teeth to their optimal positions within the mouth and deliver a straight and healthy smile. Patients in Salem, OR may believe that they are not eligible for treatment with Invisalign because they have a complicated or unique case. Dr. Ana Castilla treats patients with a range of orthodontic treatment needs with Invisalign.
Invisalign Teen is removable.
Invisalign Teen gives the wearer the freedom to eat the foods they love without having to be concerned about damage to their teeth or dental work. Invisalign is removable by the wearer to eat, brush, floss, and clean the aligner tray, so care and maintenance is easy. Invisalign allows the wearer the freedom to participate in sports or play a musical instrument because Invisalign is removable. Because Invisalign is removable, it can be forgotten or misplaced. Dr. Ana Castilla reminds Invisalign Teen patients to be conscientious about keeping the Invisalign tray safe and secure while it is not being worn.
Invisalign Teen is completely clear.
Invisalign Teen gives patients in Salem, OR the opportunity to feel fully confident in their smiles while undergoing treatment. Only the patient wearing the Invisalign aligners can tell they’re there, making for a more cosmetically pleasing system than traditional metal braces. Treatment with Invisalign, like any other orthodontic treatment system, requires the patient to wear a retainer to ensure long-lasting results after treatment.
Invisalign Teen is the clear alternative to braces for teenage patients needing orthodontic treatment in Salem, OR. To learn more about treatment with Invisalign Teen, visit Castilla Orthodontics in Salem, OR or contact Dr. Ana Castilla at: 503.399.0721
