Invisalign for Kids
While patients of all ages can benefit from orthodontics, treatment is often found to be most effective at an early age because this is when a child’s face and jaws are still developing. Early treatment allows Dr. Levin and Dr Lowe to catch and correct common issues such as:
- Smile gaps
Many parents often ask, “What is the best age for my child to start seeing an orthodontist?” The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children attend their first orthodontic consultation around the age of 7 since this is when the adult teeth are beginning to emerge.
Treatment may not always be necessary right away, and our team always has your child’s best interest in mind. If your child may benefit from Invisalign in the future, but does not require treatment at the present time, we will keep track of their development and make more informed decisions about future treatment when necessary.
Benefits Of Invisalign For Kids
Our younger patients love Invisalign for the same reasons as any other patient: discretion, comfort, and convenience. Two of the most important benefits we see with our younger patients are:
For adults, the most obvious benefit of Invisalign is the transparent look of clear aligners. For kids, while it is more aesthetic, the major advantage is that it is much more gentle. Dr. Levin and Dr. Lowe use the aligners to gradually develop space for the adult teeth. Children are excited and we find great success. With Invisalign for Kids, there are:
- Almost no emergency appointments.
- No oral hygiene white spots or cavity issues.
- No painful poking wires, cut lips, gums, or cheeks.
Invisalign aligner sets are custom-made to fit snugly around a patient’s teeth, and each set comes with about 20 to 30 trays. Patients change their aligners every week or so, with each new aligner subtly moving teeth into better positions. Patients progress through their aligners in complete comfort, thanks to the pinpoint accuracy of the 3D dental software and equipment that produces Invisalign trays.
