Our CCOA member dentists are proud to introduce, Invisalign® First, a new range of aligners designed to meet the unique orthodontic treatment needs of children. 

Invisalign clear aligners for adults and teens incrementally guide teeth into their correct positions, without the hassle of traditional metal braces.

Now, there's Invisalign® First for kids, designed specifically to straighten young smiles and give erupting adult teeth the room they need to come in, right where they should be.

While your child continues to grow, so does their developing smile. Diagnosing and treating orthodontic issues early can help to prevent more invasive treatments later in life. Now may be the perfect time to begin correcting orthodontic issues, even if your child still has baby teeth.

Early stage orthodontic treatment in children between the ages of 6-10 who still have some baby teeth, is called Phase 1 treatment.

Benefits of Phase 1 orthodontic treatment include:

  • Preventing pre-existing bite issues from getting worse.
  • Fixing existing teeth misalignment conditions.
  • Improving the appearance of a growing child’s smile.
  • Breaking oral habits such as thumb sucking or tongue thrusting.
  • May make Phase 2 orthodontic treatment shorter and easier.

Invisalign First aligners can be used for Phase 1 treatment, and can help to correct orthodontic issues including, narrow dental arches, crowding, and spacing. 

Invisalign First helps to make oral hygiene easier for young children because the aligners are removable. Simply remove your child's aligners to allow them to brush and floss as usual. 

Invisalign First has no rubbing brackets or poking wires to irritate the soft tissues in your child's mouth.  

Invisalign First treatment is designed to give growing kids predictable orthodontic treatment results and a positive treatment experience.

If you are concerned about the alignment of your child's teeth, contact a CCOA member practice today to book a consultation and to discuss orthodontic treatment options for your child.
