Is Invisalign Right for You?

01/10/2015

You’ve decided. It’s YOUR turn to get the beautiful smile you deserve and have always wanted.

Orthodontic technology has greatly advanced and today, there are more treatment options than ever. When it comes time to invest in your smile, you may feel uncertain about which option is best for you.

Though traditional braces are beneficial to many, you may want a more discreet way of straightening your teeth. At this stage in your adult life, traditional braces may not be your preferred choice.

Custom Made Just For You
Fortunately, Dr. Castilla is able to help her patients achieve this by offering Invisalign® in Salem! Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® straightens your teeth through a series of clear trays called “aligners”. The aligners are custom-made just for you, allowing you to wear them 24 hours/day. Each aligner is numbered and is indicative of a new stage in your orthodontic treatment. Usually, you change aligners every two weeks.

Invisalign® has several advantages, but the primary advantage is esthetics. Invisalign® aligners are made of virtually invisible plastic. You may even be surprised at how many people won’t notice you’re going through treatment. The aligners are also removable. This means there are no food restrictions like there are with traditional braces and maintaining good oral hygiene is easier.

Board Certified & Free Consultation
In general, Invisalign® works well for people who have relatively minor problems such as crooked teeth or small gaps between their teeth. For more complex problems, particularly issues with the bite or jaw discrepancies, traditional or ceramic braces may be a better choice.

As a Board-Certified orthodontist, Dr. Castilla can help you decide if Invisalign® is the right option for you. If you’ve decided to choose YOU in 2015, call Dr. Castilla’s office today at 503-399-0721 for a complimentary consultation to learn more about Invisalign®.
