Our Surrey Straight Smile dentists are proud to introduce, Invisalign® First, a range of aligners designed to meet the unique orthodontic treatment needs of children between 6-10 years old.
Invisalign clear aligners for adults and teens incrementally guide teeth into their correct positions, without the need for metal brackets and wires.
Now, our Surrey Straight Smile dentists are proud to offer Invisalign® First for kids. Designed specifically to straighten young smiles, Invisalign First gives erupting adult teeth the room they need to come in, right where they should be.
As your child grows, their smile continues to develop. Addressing orthodontic issues early can help to prevent more invasive treatments later in life. That's why now may be the perfect time to begin correcting your child's orthodontic issues, even if they still have baby teeth.
Orthodontic treatment that begins between the ages of 6-10, while the child still has some of their baby teeth, is called Phase 1 treatment.
The benefits of early Phase 1 orthodontic treatment include:
- Breaking oral habits such as thumb sucking or tongue thrusting.
- Preventing pre-existing bite issues from getting worse.
- Fixing existing teeth misalignment conditions.
- May make Phase 2 orthodontic treatment shorter and easier.
- Improving the appearance of a growing child’s smile.
In many cases Invisalign First aligners can be used for Phase 1 treatment, and can help to correct orthodontic issues including spacing, narrow dental arches, and crowding.
Invisalign First may help to make oral hygiene easier for young children because the aligners are removable. Simply remove your child's aligners to allow them to clean their teeth as usual.
Invisalign First is designed to give children predictable orthodontic treatment results and a positive treatment experience, with no rubbing brackets or wires.
