We all remember what it was like being a teenager. Those years can be pretty tough!
All the usual challenges kids face, like teasing, peer pressure, and the desire to fit in, can be even harder if your child has crooked teeth and is constantly feeling insecure about their smile.
They could wear traditional metal braces, but that might make your teen feel even more self-conscious about their appearance.
Fortunately, there’s a more discreet alternative in San Antonio!
At Miner Dental, we offer Invisalign, which uses a series of clear aligners that are custom-made ahead of time. We can also show you a computer mockup so you get a preview of what your new smile will look like at the end of treatment!
If you have a teen who’s insecure about their teeth, use this summer to get them started with Invisalign, and this time next year, your child could have a beautiful, straight, confident smile!
Give Your Teen Smile Confidence With Invisalign!
Conventional braces are best for complicated teeth and bite alignment issues, but not everyone needs to go that far to straighten their teeth.
We’ve relied on Invisalign for years to successfully correct crooked, overlapping, or gapped teeth. And we find that this alternative form of treatment is a better experience overall for several reasons:
*No Embarrassing Metal*
In middle or early high school, it’s pretty common for kids to be wearing metal braces. It’s less intimidating for self-conscious kids to wear braces when most of their friends and classmates are.
But older teens who get orthodontic treatment a bit later than all their peers can feel embarrassed about all that metal in their mouth.
Clear aligners are a great alternative because no one will be able to tell they’re wearing braces at all! All throughout treatment, your teen will feel much more confident, especially during the school year.
Instead of having their wires tightened every few weeks, Invisalign is a series of mouth trays your child would change out about every two weeks. That’s a much easier process to deal with than the pain and soreness of freshly-tightened wires every month.
It’s also easier to keep your teeth clean with Invisalign, since the trays are removable. Taking them out for brushing, flossing, and eating means less time and fewer tools are needed to dislodge bits of food from between your teeth!
Overall, Invisalign is a low maintenance option that’s ideal for teens who are stretched thin already with studying and extra-curricular activities.

The sooner your teen gets started on Invisalign, the sooner they can have a beautiful, confident smile!
