Early orthodontic treatment
As a Platinum Invisalign provider, Xcelerated Orthodontics offers more advanced treatment options for patients of all ages. Invisalign First is the newest choice for our youngest patients which treats a variety of dental issues early in childhood. At our clinic in Portsmouth, NH, we realize that a great smile is the result of excellent oral health, and we recognize the importance of supporting that at an early age.
What is Invisalign First
Invisalign First is an orthodontic treatment device designed specifically for young children whose teeth are still growing in. It can be used by orthodontists to correct issues with arch development and expansion, tooth crowding, protrusions and overall appearance.
How does Invisalign First work?
Invisalign First works similarly to Invisalign for teens and adults. However, the custom fitted clear trays (or aligners) are designed to gradually expand the jawline of your growing child. By expanding the dental arch area over time, we’re able to correct current issues, as well as prevent more serious orthodontic problems for the future.
Benefits of Invisalign First
- Allows for flexible treatment with Invisalign early on
- Customized to your child’s specific needs
- Supports teeth and jawline formation
- Creates room for incoming teeth with dental arch expansion
When should my child see an orthodontist?
Experts recommend children see an orthodontist around age seven when their permanent teeth start to emerge. At that age, they will have both baby and adult teeth and we will be able to spot issues that may cause orthodontic problems. During your child’s initial consultation, we can assess if Invisalign First is a good option for your son or daughter. We also offer Invisalign Teen for our high-school aged patients.
