Introducing Invisalign® First for Kids

Invisalign First is a specialized orthodontic treatment designed exclusively for younger children, typically between the ages of six and ten, who have a combination of primary and permanent teeth. Recognized as Phase 1 treatment, this innovative system employs transparent aligners to rectify orthodontic issues early on, preventing them from evolving into more intricate problems during the teenage years.

The Significance of Phase 1 Treatment

Phase 1 orthodontic treatment with Invisalign First is a crucial first step in addressing orthodontic concerns in young children. It focuses on early intervention to correct common issues such as overcrowding, protruding teeth, arch development, overbites, and underbites. By addressing these concerns during Phase 1, we can often prevent the need for more extensive orthodontic treatment in the future.

Benefits of Phase 1 Treatment

Engaging in Phase 1 treatment offers several advantages. It not only addresses alignment issues but also contributes to improved oral health. Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean and maintain, reducing the risk of dental problems like cavities and gum disease. Additionally, Phase 1 treatment can potentially shorten the duration of Phase 2, making the overall orthodontic journey more efficient.

Is Invisalign the Right Choice for Your Child?

Invisalign’s transparency, removability, and comfort, combined with its effectiveness comparable to traditional braces, make it an increasingly popular choice for orthodontic treatment among children. However, before opting for Invisalign for your child, it’s crucial to discuss the responsibilities associated with this treatment.

Consider the following:

Removable Aligners:

Since your child can remove their aligners during meals, there's a risk of misplacing them. Establishing a routine or strategy can help your child keep track of their aligners, ensuring they're not misplaced.

Aligner Maintenance:

Alongside maintaining good oral hygiene, it's essential for your child to clean their Invisalign trays regularly.

Not every child necessitates Phase 1 treatment. Hence, it’s advisable to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Kathy Shafagh around the age of six. Our proficient orthodontist will evaluate your child’s dental needs and advise you on whether early intervention with Invisalign First is essential for their oral health.
