What is Invisalign First?

Did you know your child should visit an orthodontist for an exam by the time they are 7 years old? An orthodontist can check your child’s smile and ensure they are developing properly. If your kid needs early treatment, Invisalign for children may be a good fit for them!

Invisalign First is an early orthodontic treatment made for children 6-10 years old. Invisalign for children uses a series of transparent aligners that are specially designed to improve your kid’s smile. 

Invisalign technology has come a long way in the past few years and can address many early orthodontic conditions like arch problems, protruding teeth, and more. As a Top 1% Invisalign provider in the US, Dr. Jesse knows how to give your child the smile they deserve!

How Does Invisalign for Kids Work?

Invisalign for kids uses a series of clear aligners to correct bite malocclusions. Your child will wear their aligners for 20-22 hours a day and change out their set every one to two weeks. Over time, the aligners apply gentle pressure on your kid’s teeth and jaw, bringing them into the desired position over time.

Each set of Invisalign First aligners is specially designed to treat developing smiles. These innovative aligners can expand the palatal arch and, in some cases, eliminate the need for palate expanders! Plus, Invisalign First’s Eruption Compensation feature allows for the loss of primary teeth and the development of permanent teeth. With this new technology, orthodontists can address early issues more easily and flexibly than ever before.
