Is Invisalign® Right for Your Teen’s Smile?

August 9, 2016

At Killeen Children’s Dental Center in Harker Heights, Texas, Drs. James Shoptaw, Roden-Johnson, and Jeff Gregerson are pleased to offer Invisalign® aligners for our patients seeking a straighter smile. If you have a teen who needs a straighter smile but doesn’t want the inconvenience of wearing braces, they might be the perfect candidate for the Invisalign system.

With the Invisalign system, we use a series of custom-made clear aligners from computer-generated plastic. These aligners are removable, so your teen can continue to eat and drink their favorite foods and beverages without worrying about harming or staining their plastic trays. Every two weeks your child will be changing aligners, which work to gradually place their pearly whites where they need to be.

Another benefit to these clear plastic aligners is that they can give your teen a straighter smile without using metal brackets and wires used in traditional orthodontic treatments. Our aligners are comfortable to wear without causing abrasions to sensitive mouth tissues, unlike metal braces.

Our Invisalign system is ideal for our patients who wish to align their smile with minimally invasive and virtually invisible treatment. If your teen’s teeth are currently crowded, crooked, have gaps or bite issues, they may benefit from our Invisalign system!
