Designed for Little Smiles
Now kids can get comfortable and clear results with Invisalign treatment.
About Invisalign First
In 2018, Invisalign released a clear aligner system designed for patients ages 7-10 years old called Invisalign First or Invisalign First Phase.
This clear aligner treatment provides predictable results and positive experience while addressing the unique needs of growing children.
Invisalign First can help treat:
A bad bite
Preserving space for unerupted permanent teeth
Using Invisalign First in Phase 1 Treatment
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 years old 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.
Benefits of Invisalign First
A Simple Start
Invisalign First treatment starts with a simple digital 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.
Talk to Us About Invisalign
It’s important to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day, as recommended by Dr. Wood so they can do their job and straighten your teeth. But, with Invisalign, you can remove your aligners for special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, you’ll generally need to wear a retainer after Invisalign treatment to maintain your new alignment—and your confident new smile.
Dr. Wood may not recommend Invisalign for some more complex alignment or bite issues, or for those who have bridgework; Dr. Wood can advise you about what options are best for you.
