An Alternative Treatment Option to Palate Expanders in Early Treatment

Fredericksburg Invisalign® First orthodontist, Dr. Almy is excited to offer Invisalign® First to children during early interceptive, or Phase 1, treatment. Invisalign® First is an alternative treatment to the traditional fixed appliance used to expand the palate. As orthodontists, one of our primary goals is the comfort of our patients, and by utilizing this innovative new technology, we are able to offer all of the benefits of Invisalign® clear aligners to children. Invisalign® First targets upper arch expansion while fully accommodating the growing needs of children. Additional orthodontic conditions that Invisalign® First can treat include:

  • Arch development
  • Crowding
  • Aesthetic alignment
  • Influencing proper jaw alignment to facilitate a functional bite
  • Preserving space for unerupted permanent teeth


  • No poking wires or broken brackets
  • Less irritation in the soft tissue of the mouth
  • Faster, more predictable treatment, which means fewer appointments and better results
  • No dietary restrictions. Kids can eat whatever they want, whenever they want
  • Don’t worry about a lost aligner. Kids can typically move on to the next one in the series.

As a Diamond+ Invisalign® Provider, we have the highest level of experience using Invisalign® technology. We look forward to being able to offer our youngest patients the same great benefits of Invisalign® and maximizing their comfort during early interceptive treatment.
