Your Teen Will Love Invisalign for Teens Treatment
At Texas Family Orthodontics, we want our Invisalign for teens patients to be excited about starting their journey towards straighter teeth, and Invisalign Teen helps us do that. Invisalign doesn't use brackets, wires and bands like traditional braces.
Invisalign created a system that meets the unique needs of teens. At your initial consultation, Dr. Vo will be able to determine if Invisalign for Teens is the best option for your unique smile.
Teen years can be difficult, especially if you’re a teen who needs to wear metal braces. Let’s face it: no teen wants to go to the senior prom or the homecoming game wearing old-style braces. Fortunately, your teenager won’t have those worries with Invisalign Teen.
At Texas Family Orthodontics, we allow you and your teenager to choose treatment with Invisalign for Teens. These clear aligners work the same way as braces with a significant difference: Invisalign trays are virtually invisible.
These state-of-the-art aligners are removable. Although teens need to wear the trays for 22 hours a day, they can remove the trays when they eat or clean their teeth.
Whatever food your teen likes -popcorn, pizza, etc. - is not a problem with Invisalign for Teens. They’re also extremely comfortable compared to old-style metal braces. And they’re durable, too!
Each clear aligner is custom-made for your teen’s mouth. Dr. Vo will fit your teen with a new aligner tray every couple of weeks as your teen’s teeth gradually shift into their new positions.
At the end of their treatment, your teenager will have a straighter, more beautiful smile—all while never experiencing the embarrassment of metal braces.
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!
Invisalign for Teens helps you focus on doing what you do best-being a teen. At your initial consultation with Dr. Vo, you’ll find out if Invisalign is a good fit for your smile and your lifestyle!
Dr. Vo and our entire team understand how to treat our teen patients with a gentle, caring attitude. We know how important it is to make each trip to our San Antonio and Windcrest office as pleasant as possible, and we go out of our way to do just that.
Not only are we experts at our jobs, but we’re also experts at making our teenage patients feel cared for and at ease.

It’s essential to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day so they can do their job and straighten your teeth. But, with Invisalign, you can remove your aligners for special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, Dr. Vo will recommend Invisalign patients to wear a retainer after treatment to maintain your new alignment—and your confident new smile.
Invisalign may not be recommended for everybody, for example, if your child has some complex alignment or bite issues. Dr. Vo can advise you about what options are best for your teen.
