Healthy Smiles that Last a Lifetime
Having straight teeth and a functional bite sets the stage for lifelong oral health. When teenagers love their smile, it also gives them the confidence they need to tackle challenges, build relationships and achieve their dreams. However, with school, activities, friends and family, we know you and your teen are busy. That’s why we have teeth-straightening solutions that will give your child outstanding results more quickly and conveniently. To learn more about teen orthodontic treatment in Houston or Bellaire, book a free consultation with us online or by calling us at (713) 667-6000 (Bellaire) or (281) 752-4222 (West Houston).
A Great Time to Kick Off Treatment
It probably seems like almost every teenager you come across is wearing braces or Invisalign® Teen. That’s because, for many patients, the teenage years are the ideal time to start orthodontic treatment. Most of the permanent teeth have erupted at this point and we can clearly identify problems with alignment or spacing. Since teens have high metabolisms (lucky!) and are still developing, we can take advantage of their growth spurts to more effectively manipulate the teeth and jaws for dramatic, lasting results.
Options for Every Smile
Every patient is unique and you won’t find a one-size-fits-all approach here! During your teenager’s consultation, Dr. Tabakman, Dr. Bloome or Dr. Khan will evaluate their bite, chat with you both about their lifestyle and needs and recommend a personalized treatment plan. We always take the time to fully explain the diagnosis and your options and answer all of your questions. We want your teen to be just as thrilled with their choice of treatment as they will be with their results, which is why we offer a variety of high-tech teeth-straightening solutions, including conventional braces, self-ligating metal and clear braces, lingual braces and Invisalign Teen. If your teenager want to press fast forward on the process and finish treatment in nearly half the time, we’re also a Propel® provider!
