What is Invisalign first?

Invisalign first is a great removable clear aligner option for patients needing early Phase I orthodontic treatment. Certain orthodontic problems can be identified in the early mixed dentition when there is a mixture of both permanent and baby teeth.

Who’s a candidate?

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends the first orthodontic evaluation happen around age 7. This is usually when permanent first molars and incisors start to erupt, and an orthodontist can identify issues in the relationship between the upper and lower teeth or jaws. Problems such as crossbites, crowding, extremely proclined teeth or underbites can often be addressed with Invisalign first.

Schedule your first orthodontic visit with one of our orthodontists to see if Invisalign first may be the right choice.

What are the benefits?

Invisalign first is a great option for young patients as it is removable, which means fewer diet restrictions and easier access to brush and floss properly! This option can also be more comfortable without rubbing brackets or poking wires, especially for kids active in sports or music.

Ultimately you know your child best and can help make the decision if a removable appliance option, like Invisalign first, is the right fit for them.
