Treating Children with Invisalign

Treating Children with Invisalign
Posted on 01/20/2021

Did you know that we are now treating children with Invisalign?  Thanks to a revolutionary new product development at Align Technology, Invisalign First was specially created to straighten teeth and improve oral health in children. Many orthodontists elect to not treat utilizing Invisalign when it comes to kids, but here at Surf City Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign treatment for all ages.

We love to see children in our practice as early as age 7 so that we can prevent many orthodontic problems from becoming worse.  One of the biggest benefits of treating children is that we can make extra room for incoming permanent teeth and avoid future crowding.  Additionally, we can intervene early and prevent bite issues from becoming worse. We can also improve the appearance of a growing child’s smile, without having to wait until all permanent teeth are erupted.

Invisalign First is specifically designed for the unique needs of growing children, and we are proud to provide this service to our local community. Some benefits of Invisalign are as follows:

  1. No food restrictions.  Once your child’s Invisalign aligners are removed, your child can eat their normal diet without changing anything.  If your child had braces instead, any hard or sticky food can break the appliances and prolong treatment.
  2. Oral hygiene is as easy as ever. Brushing and flossing can continue without hassle, so your child’s teeth and gums can stay healthy.
  3. Effective and efficient treatment. Since Invisalign treatment is completely digitally planned, we have excellent control over moving the teeth that we actually want to move and holding other teeth that are already in good positions.
