As a child grows, their smile grows with them. Even with baby teeth, Dr. Long can see developing problems that may need early treatment. This is known as Phase 1 treatment.
Invisalign First may be a perfect option for children between ages 6 to 10. These clear, removable aligners are used when there is a mix of baby and permanent teeth.
The goal of Phase 1 treatment with Invisalign First is to develop the jaws and dental arches early in order to make space for both existing teeth and future permanent teeth.
Typically Phase 1 is treated with traditional braces, but thanks to the latest technology, you now have another treatment option.
Removable aligners mean there is little interruption to your child’s life. Plus, they can still eat all the foods they love. There is no need to miss out on popcorn at the movies or other fun foods while spending time with friends. Children can continue to eat what they want!
Also, there is no need to worry about brushing and flossing. Because the aligners are removable, they can brush without hassle and keep good hygiene habits on track.
