Invisalign® First was created for young children between 6 and 10 years old with a mixture of baby and adult teeth, also known as Phase 1 treatment. It is an advanced system that uses clear aligners to fix any orthodontic issue before it progresses into more complex treatment as they reach their teen years.
Forget about those old poky, bulky, uncomfortable appliances and give your child a more comfortable, confident smile, even while they are in treatment. No more need for old techniques such as head gears, expanders, or tongue cribs! Invisalign® First can address overcrowding, protruding teeth, spaces, alignment, arch development, and expansion without interfering with sports or speech. Phase 1 will also help reduce the amount of treatment time for Phase 2 (Invisalign® Teen), making it easier for the permanent teeth to come into a correct position.
Not all children require Phase 1 treatment which is why it is important to schedule a consultation with an orthodontist at the recommended age of 6 years old. Dr. Shafagh can assess your child’s orthodontic needs and can help you determine if early treatment is necessary for your child, so call us today at (818) 452-5688 to schedule a complimentary consultation!
