Invisalign® Can Help You Stay Healthy

The Invisalign® system straightens the smile with removable aligners that gently push teeth into their optimal position over a six to 18 month period. Because the aligners can be removed for eating, Invisalign does not require modifications to your diet, which can help keep you healthy during your treatment.

With traditional braces, crunchy fruits, vegetables, nut and seeds, cannot be eaten, but the dense nutrients provided by these wholesome foods cannot be found elsewhere, making their elimination from the diet one that can be dangerous. With Invisalign, such dietary prohibitions are lifted, allowing you to maintain a healthy diet while your teeth are straightened.

Additional benefits offered by Invisalign include:

There are a number of reasons to consider Invisalign if you are an adult or older teen in need of orthodontic treatment. The best way to determine if Invisalign is the right choice for your smile is by meeting with Houston dentist Dr. Scott Young for a one-on-one consultation.

To schedule your consultation with Dr. Young, please contact Scott Young, DDS today. We welcome patients from Houston, Kingwood, Conroe, and all surrounding Texas communities.
