As an Invisalign® Diamond Plus Provider, we proudly offer Invisalign First for children in Macon and Warner Robins, Georgia. Invisalign® First aligners provide a discreet treatment option to correct misalignments and straighten the teeth of younger patients before problematic conditions erupt.
Invisalign First clear aligners are designed specifically for smaller mouths that require gentle, yet effective care. Customized to your child’s mixed dentition of baby teeth and adult teeth, Invisalign® First aligners mold the foundation for adult teeth to emerge in a healthy alignment.
While the baby teeth are still shedding, and the adult teeth are beginning to erupt, we can guide the permanent teeth into a beautiful alignment as they’re growing. Starting treatment with clear aligners or braces on baby teeth is ideal for intervening with problematic orthodontic conditions before they solidify and require longer or more intense treatment.
Removable aligners enable greater hygiene! Food won’t get stuck between brackets and wires, and aligners can be removed and cleaned regularly with ease. Instead of working around brackets and wires, you’ll simply remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth with ease.
Treatment with Invisalign First clear aligners also requires fewer office visits! Without poking wires, loose brackets, or archwires to “tighten”, these clear aligners reduce the need for emergency appointments. These aligners save you time, which means less accommodations to be made for missing work or for your child missing school.
The purpose of these aligners is to prepare the mouth for a full set of permanent teeth to grow in a healthy formation.
It’s our goal to assess your child’s current condition and determine whether orthodontic treatment will improve his or her quality of life.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the first early orthodontic screening be completed by age 7. When a young patient is around this age, our highly-experienced orthodontists are able to identify emerging conditions that require attention.
Beginning treatment with braces at age 7 or 8 could prevent your child from having to undergo a more intensive treatment in the future. Starting treatment (if necessary) at this age enables us to prevent facial asymmetries and deformities that may become permanent if left untreated.
