We are proud to offer Invisalign for kids at our Longwood and Lake Mary orthodontic offices! Thanks to the experience of our amazing Invisalign orthodontists, Dr. Wiewiora and Dr. Dunn, we can treat young patients with this modern form of braces for kids.
The Importance of Early Orthodontic Treatment
While the baby teeth are still emerging is the perfect time to consider orthodontic treatment (or at least an orthodontic assessment). Our orthodontists are able to detect orthodontic conditions that are likely to become problematic if left untreated.
Early orthodontic treatment can lead to shorter treatment periods and improved facial symmetry for children. Whereas, conditions left untreated may require jaw surgery or various appliances to correct later in life. Once the jaw bones are done growing, it also takes additional care to correct any associated facial abnormalities or asymmetries.
Why Invisalign First Braces for Kids?
Because growing mouths require gentle care! Invisalign First clear aligners are customized to fit your child’s mixed dentition of baby teeth and adult teeth. These aligners guide the baby teeth into a healthy alignment as they’re emerging.
Invisalign First aligners are specialized to mold the foundation for adult teeth to erupt and stabilize in the proper alignment. These aligners are comfortable, clear and removable!
Without metal brackets and wires, Invisalign First aligners allow for greater hygiene. Your child will remove his or her aligners to eat, drink (liquids other than water), brush and floss their teeth. Food won’t get stuck within braces, and aligners can be removed and cleaned regularly.
Conditions Treated with Invisalign First
With Invisalign First clear aligners, we can treat a number of orthodontic conditions, including the following:
- Crowded teeth
- Misaligned bite conditions (overbite, underbite, open-bite, crossbite)
- Narrow dental arch
- Gapped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Teeth spacing
- Thumb-sucking or tongue-thrusting
What is the best age to get braces?
The AAO (American Association of Orthodontists) recommends that children receive their first orthodontic exam around age 7. Around this age, baby teeth are shedding and permanent teeth are emerging. This is the ideal time for our orthodontists to identify impending problematic conditions that will soon require professional attention.
We will never suggest unnecessary orthodontic treatment for your child! We only want what’s best for their smile. It’s our goal to assess your child’s condition and determine whether orthodontic treatment will improve his or her quality of life.
