Invisalign® First is a new way to address the needs of younger patients by using clear aligners to achieve arch expansion and initial tooth alignment during the mixed dentition. In many cases, using removable aligners can avoid the need for bulky palatal expanders and help create more room to guide the erupting permanent teeth.
Early treatment concerns such as arch development, crowding, crossbites, blocked out teeth, tooth protrusion and other esthetic concerns can be addressed sooner which can make full orthodontic treatment later during adolescence easier and more predictable.
- Fewer emergency visits and increased comfort. No poky wires or broken appliances!
- Better oral hygiene because kids take the aligners out to eat, brush and floss.
- Less stress of a lost or damaged appliance. We can usually just move to the next aligner.
