Invisalign® Teen

Dive into Invisalign® for teens

At Lake Jackson Orthodontics, we want our teen patients to be excited about starting their journey toward a straighter smile. Invisalign® Teen helps us do that!

Removable + almost invisible

Invisalign created a system that meets the unique needs of teens – without using metal brackets or wires! At your initial consultation, Dr. McGrory will be able to determine if Invisalign® Teen is the best option for your unique smile.

Invisalign Teen aligners are made of clear plastic and are nearly invisible. Your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them! Instead of metal braces, Lake Jackson Orthodontics Invisalign patients enjoy the confidence of showing off their smiles every day.

You probably have friends with braces who aren’t allowed to chew gum or eat certain foods like popcorn and whole apples. With Invisalign for teens, aligners are completely removable, so you don’t have to eliminate any of your favorite foods and snacks! This also means you can easily keep brushing and flossing as you normally would for proper oral hygiene.

Invisalign for teens helps you focus on doing what you do best – being a teen. At your initial consultation with Dr. McGrory, you’ll find out if Invisalign is a good fit for your smile and your lifestyle!

Great for active teens

Invisalign Teen effectively straightens teeth the same way metal braces do. Invisalign Teen is an ideal choice for teens in Lake Jackson who play sports, play certain types of instruments, love crunchy foods, or are concerned about how metal braces will look at homecoming or in the yearbook.

Whether you play sports or a musical instrument, traditional metal braces can present some new challenges. It’s hard to perform at your best knowing you could get hit in the mouth with a ball, or cut your lip trying to hit that note on the trumpet!

As a teenager, you should be able to participate in the activities you’re interested in while still having the confidence to attend social events and make lasting memories. You should also be able to get efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues.

With the clear, comfortable technology of Invisalign and Dr. McGrory’s expert care, teens can keep being themselves and love their smiles even more.

Perfect for busy schedules

Invisalign Teen treatment is ideal for busy parents in Lake Jackson and surrounding areas because there are never any emergency appointments from broken wires or brackets.

Invisalign often requires fewer appointments than traditional metal braces since you get your Invisalign aligners in advance, and each visit requires less “chair time.”

The typical Invisalign Teen patient sees Dr. McGrory once every eight weeks for a total average treatment time of 9 to 15 months.

It’s important to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day for them to do their job and straighten your teeth. However, with Invisalign, you can remove your aligners for special occasions, brushing, flossing and eating.

Like with traditional braces, Dr. McGrory will recommend that Invisalign patients wear a retainer after treatment to maintain their new alignment and their confident new smile.
