How Invisalign for kids works
Invisalign braces work by applying pressure to problem areas to move and rotate teeth. Your child’s custom-made plastic aligners will gradually shift their teeth into the correct positions, addressing common orthodontic issues like crossbites, crowding and spacing. Children can remove their Invisalign First aligners for mealtime and brushing and flossing.
Garrett & Boyd Orthodontics provides kids with a personalized Invisalign First treatment. Every few weeks, your child will receive a new aligner as their teeth move into the desired spot. We use an iTero™ digital system to ensure accurate measurements, maximum comfort and outstanding results.
Is Invisalign First right for your child?
Invisalign First treatment is one of numerous early treatment options for younger kids. Is it a good fit for your child? The best candidates for this plan:
- Are 6-10 years old: Children should get an evaluation by age 7. This check-up will reveal any issues and start your child on the right track for their oral health journey.
- Need to correct oral habits: Although thumb sucking and pacifier use come naturally to infants, practicing these habits excessively might affect their teeth. Invisalign First treatment is an excellent way to correct these behaviors and encourage healthier ones, such as flossing.
- Are mature and responsible: Will your child be able to keep up with their aligners and comply with directions? Be sure to explain the treatment’s importance and remind your youngster to take the aligners out and put them back in on time.
