Our dentists can examine your child's teeth to determine if Invisalign First clear aligners might be a suitable treatment option for them.
What is Invisalign First?
Invisalign First are clear aligners made to help straighten children's developing teeth. These orthodontic appliances can accommodate children's growing smiles while going through orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign First may help correct issues with protrusions, teeth crowding, spacing issues, arch development, and expansion.
This form of early orthodontic treatment can guide your child's teeth into their correct positions while their smile is still developing.
If we can detect and treat orthodontic issues early, we may be able to reduce the need for more invasive and extensive orthodontic treatment later.
Benefits of Invisalign First for Kids
For some children, Invisalign First can be an alternative to traditional braces because of the following benefits:
- It treats various misalignment issues developing in children, including irregular spacing of teeth, narrow dental arches, and crowding
- It does not come with the discomfort or friction of brackets or poking wires
- It has removable aligners, making it easier for kids to brush and floss regularly
How Invisalign First Works
Using a process called dental arch expansion, Invisalign First clear aligners expand and contour your child's jawline with guiding pressure.
This consistent, mild pressure applied to the teeth can help to widen your child's dental arch.
Invisalign First clear aligners can gradually move your child's teeth throughout his or her treatment. We can customize a treatment plan based on your child's orthodontic needs. They may need a single clear aligner or two.
