Is your child a good candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign offers a product designed to help kids and tweens ages 6 to 10 called Invisalign First. This new option allows orthodontists to look for problems or potential issues and start treatment early instead of waiting until all the permanent teeth come in.
Your child may be a good candidate for Invisalign if they have any of the following:
How Invisalign for kids works
Invisalign First starts with a scan of your child’s mouth and teeth — no impressions required. Your orthodontist will then plan the Invisalign treatment digitally to help keep you in the loop on the progress.
Most often, your child will only wear their aligners at home and overnight for the first six months to get them into a routine. Once that is established, we will move your child into full-time wear. The goal of Invisalign First is to help children accommodate their permanent teeth.
Benefits of Invisalign First®
Easy oral health
Your child can take out their aligners when they need to brush and floss their teeth. This easy access makes them less likely to develop buildup in areas they could not clean properly.
Simple to clean
Invisalign aligners are also easy to clean. All your child needs to do is clean the trays with a toothbrush and water or use the Invisalign cleaning system.
Children enjoy these aligners because they can take them out when they eat, meaning there are no limits on the types of food they can enjoy.
Invisalign First is an effective and comfortable treatment for various issues when used as recommended.
Helpful confidence booster
Having a beautiful smile will help your children feel better about themselves, and the discreet appearance of these aligners helps children maintain their self-image during treatment.
