Invisalign® First for Kids
Invisalign is for everyone
Children as young as 7 years old can smile with the same high-quality orthodontic treatment as their parents or teenage siblings.
Children have a mix of baby and adult teeth, however, there may be a need for orthodontics to prevent more complex issues in the future. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
Dr. Caudill, Dr. McNeight or Dr. Naglieri will choose Invisalign First, because growing mouths require gentle (yet effective) care. Invisalign First is easy to maintain, comfortable to wear, and accommodating to little patients’ lifestyles.
Special Invisalign aligners are custom-made for each smile and designed to work efficiently, alongside the natural development of the teeth and jaw bones.
Because these clear aligners are removable, Invisalign First will accommodate the permanent teeth as they’re erupting. Clear aligner treatment can prove especially beneficial for young patients who have a mixed dentition of baby teeth and adult teeth.
Invisalign treatment can help to establish a strong foundation for permanent teeth to grow in a beautiful, healthy alignment. Invisalign First aligners are uniquely designed to hold space for permanent teeth to grow before they’ve erupted through the gums. Holding these spaces helps to maintain sufficient room in the mouth to prevent teeth from crowding or overlapping.
Children can remove their aligners when they eat, brush their teeth, and floss their teeth. This means no food is off limits, and they won’t have to alter their oral hygiene routine to adjust to their treatment. Invisalign First can support young patients as they develop strong oral hygiene habits that benefit their smile for a lifetime.
How do I get
All you have to do is request your complimentary consultation with us, and we’ll take care of the rest! When you visit us, we’ll introduce you to our friendly team and perform a thorough exam at no cost.
We’ll take digital impressions and digital x-rays and complete a physical exam of your child’s smile to determine if treatment is right for them at this point in time. We will never suggest unnecessary treatment!
If orthodontics will benefit your child, we’ll explain the Invisalign process to you and ensure that you feel comfortable and informed. Then we’ll take digital scans to have your child’s custom clear aligners made and start the process!
