Invisalign® for children
Invisalign® First is ideal for children in Phase-One treatment. Its design is specifically tailored to fit their growing jaws and help them develop healthy, symmetrical smiles.
Invisalign® First is an Invisalign® treatment for children ages 6-10. It consists of smooth, clear, removable plastic aligners, which gradually realign the teeth and jaws. Invisalign® First helps your child’s dental arch expand, making more space for teeth to grow in.
During the first consultation, we’ll take digital scans of your little one’s smile. We’ll use these scans to create bespoke Invisalign® aligners and ensure the perfect fit and maximum comfort.
Invisalign® aligners are a registered medical device, you should always read and follow the label as well as the instructions of your treating orthodontist.
The purpose of orthodontic treatment goes beyond aesthetics. Proper bite alignment can prevent gum infections and tooth decay caused by difficulties brushing and flossing. It also stops crooked growth in its tracks and helps prevent speech impairments.
Finding orthodontic issues while your child’s teeth are still developing can reduce the length and cost of future interventions. Orthodontic treatment might be beneficial for your child if they show some of these warning signs:
It is important to get your child’s teeth checked out if they show any of the signs mentioned above. Even better, if you stay ahead of the problem by taking your child to a Specialist Orthodontist once they turn 7 years old, regardless of any symptoms!
Dr Debora Harris will inspect your child’s smile before giving a go signal for Phase One treatment. Your child may not need Invisalign® First and, even if Dr Harris recommends it, there is never any obligation to proceed with treatment.
