Invisalign® First is an orthodontic solution that allows for the use of Invisalign® technology in children whose adult teeth are still growing in. For parents who want to provide their growing children with the orthodontic benefits of Invisalign® technology, Invisalign® First may be a solution.
Invisalign® First is used for making various corrections in the positioning of growing teeth. It utilizes unique features for dental arch expansion and creating room for incoming teeth.
Invisalign® First works by expanding and contouring your child’s jawline through what is known as dental arch expansion. Dental arch expansion involves moving your child’s teeth over time to increase the width of their dental arch.
As an authorized Invisalign® orthodontist, Dr. Joosse will evaluate your child’s situation and explain if Invisalign® First will be an option.
If so, your child will receive a customized set of aligners made specifically for them. Depending on your child’s needs, he or she may require a full pair of aligners or just one aligner. Certain teeth may require attachments to be placed on their surface. Attachments will help direct pressure from the retainer device to the necessary teeth.
