Many teens deal with bite issues such as gaps and crooked tooth presentation, or malocclusions such as overbite, underbite, crossbite, or overjet. Invisalign Teen® offers a safe, comfortable, and less invasive way to address these problems and produce a straight and strong smile your teen will be proud to show the world.
Invisalign Teen uses the same technology as Invisalign® and Invisalign Express®, which has proven to be effective at correcting a number of different bite issues. Treatment with Invisalign Teen can often be completed in less than 18 months, helping your teen achieve optimal results in a fraction of the time required for braces.

The Problems with Braces
Braces are unsightly and cause many teens embarrassment, but feeling awkward is not really reason enough to avoid needed dental care. Nonetheless, treatment with Invisalign Teen is more aesthetically pleasing than braces.
In addition to being more aesthetically pleasing, Invisalign Teen is more comfortable and less invasive than braces. Braces pull teeth into position through frequent manual adjustments. Invisalign Teen gently pushes teeth into alignment with progressive aligner trays. What’s more, braces can be sharp and painful, making them a hazard in sports and other activities. The soft plastic aligner trays used for Invisalign Teen can be worn during any activity and will not cut or damage sensitive oral tissue.
Invisalign Teen aligner trays are made of BPA-free plastic and can be removed for eating and tooth cleaning. This allows your teen to continue eating a well-balanced diet during treatment and helps prevent issues such as tooth decay and discoloration that are common with traditional orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign Teen offers a wonderful alternative to braces for ideal candidates. To learn if this treatment is right for your child, please contact our experienced Houston dentists to schedule an initial consultation today.
