Children’s Invisalign First clear braces
Is your child wanting a straighter, more beautiful smile? Invisalign First is a fantastic alternative to early orthodontic treatment that provides great results for children and Fresh Smiles Orthodontics’ patients – without the discomfort and embarrassment associated with traditional metal braces and expanders.
Invisalign First clear aligners can fix a broad range of teeth straightening issues, including crowding, spacing and narrow dental arches.
What is Invisalign First Phase 1 treatment?
Designed to be virtually invisible as well as removable, Invisalign First aligner treatment is designed for predictable results and a positive experience while addressing the unique needs of growing children, aligning their teeth while expanding their arches and making room for existing teeth and incoming permanent teeth.
How do Invisalign First braces work and what is Phase 1 treatment?
Invisalign First treatment starts with a simple scan. All the aligners are constructed from the one 3D scan of the teeth and you receive them all at the start of your treatment to take home.
Removable aligners mean there’s little interruption to your child’s life and the foods they love. The aligners are also specifically designed to fit smaller teeth and with space to accommodate teeth that are growing in.
The goal of Phase 1 treatment is to develop young jaws and/or arches to make room for existing teeth and for incoming permanent teeth.
Advantages of Phase 1 treatment include:
- Can prevent pre-existing bite issues from getting worse.
- Can fix existing teeth straightening conditions.
- Can improve the appearance of a growing child’s smile.
- Can correct oral habits such as thumb sucking or tongue thrusting.
- Can make Phase 2 treatment, which is for preteens or teens once all permanent teeth have erupted, shorter and easier.
Who is Invisalign First treatment right for?
As a child grows, their smile grows with them. Even with baby teeth, it may be the perfect time for children ages 6 to 10 to start orthodontic treatment. This is known as Phase 1 Treatment.
At this stage the orthodontist can see issues that may need early treatment to address a developing problem.
How much is Invisalign?
Invisalign First treatment is custom made for your teen, so the amount you invest into Invisalign braces depends on the presenting problem.
