Invisalign First in Belton, TX
Invisalign First is a Phase 1 treatment designed specifically for growing children in primary and early mixed dentition.
These aligners can treat a broad range of teeth straightening issues for children from developing dental arch forms to creating space for permanent erupting dentition. It is a great early orthodontic option for children to avoid more serious problems in the future.
Why Invisalign First?
Invisalign First is a technologically advanced version of Invisalign® for children. It gives younger children a Phase 1 orthodontic option that comes with the same comfort and convenience as Invisalign and Invisalign Teens. These aligners can be removed for cleaning, eating, drinking, brushing, or other activities. They allow your orthodontist to plan around your child’s unique needs and adjust room for incoming teeth without having to remove any surrounding teeth. Invisalign First trays are custom designed for each patient to address various orthodontic conditions including:
- Dental arch development
- A-P correction
- Esthetic alignment
- Tooth protrusions or interferences
How does Invisalign First work?
Dental arch expansion is the process of expanding and contouring the jawline which involves pushing your child’s teeth over time to increase the width of their dental arch. When you bring your child in for a consultation, our Belton orthodontist will evaluate their smile and determine if they are a good candidate for Invisalign First. Once everything is confirmed, we will begin by taking pictures, x-rays, and impressions of your child’s teeth. These results will then go to an Invisalign lab where Invisalign First aligners are custom built to fit your child. On your next visit, our orthodontist will fit the aligner to your child’s smile. The tray will gradually shift your child’s teeth as needed and the next phases of the treatment will follow.
Why should your child use Invisalign first?
Invisalign First is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment for your child that can be used to correct their teeth and avoid expensive and painful procedures in the future. This treatment is ideal as it can be more comfortable and quicker than conventional braces and other treatments. Even if you consider what your child will need to straighten their teeth, most users will see results in six months.
The aligners are not only more comfortable but they allow your child to live their daily life without the need to adjust braces or avoid their favorite snacks. You can simply pop them out while eating, sleeping, playing sports, or any other purpose. When they are done, they can pop them back in their mouth.
Invisalign makes its clear aligners out of SmartTrack material. This material is part of what makes the trays more comfortable and can straighten your child’s teeth quicker and more predictably. The perfect orthodontic plan with Invisalign for your child will be created by our pediatric orthodontist in Belton, TX.
