Designed for Little Smiles
In 2018, Invisalign released an orthodontic product designed for patients ages 7-10 years old called Invisalign First or Invisalign First Phase.
About Invisalign First
This clear aligner treatment provides predictable results and a positive experience while addressing the unique needs of growing children.
They align your child’s teeth while expanding their arches and making room for existing teeth and incoming permanent teeth.
Invisalign First can help treat:
- Arch development
- Aesthetic alignment
- Influencing proper jaw alignment to facilitate a functional bite
- Preserving space for unerupted permanent teeth
As a child grows, their smile grows with them. And even with baby teeth, it may be the perfect time for children ages 6 to 10 to start orthodontic treatment. This is known as Phase 1 treatment.
At this stage, orthodontists can see issues that may need early treatment to address a developing problem.
A Simple Start
Invisalign First treatment starts with a simple scan (no goopy impressions). From there, every step of your child’s plan is plotted digitally, so you know what to expect.
A Happier Experience
With removable aligners, there’s not much interruption to your child’s life. They can even continue to eat foods that they love.
Plus, the aligners are specifically designed to fit smaller teeth and include space to accommodate teeth that are growing in.
Made for All Sorts of Smiles
Invisalign First clear aligners can fix a wide range of issues, including crowding, spacing, and narrow dental arches.
Keep Your Hygiene Routine
Growing children can continue to brush and floss without the hassle and keep their good hygiene habits on track.
At Hidden Smiles Orthodontics, we like to ease our younger patients into Invisalign First treatment. During the first six months of treatment, we ask our younger patients to only wear their aligners at home and to bed (not during school hours).
Once they have the Invisalign routine down, we move them to full-time wear.
