Invisalign® For Kids

An Alternative Treatment Plan to Palate Expanders in Early Orthodontic Treatment

Finding and treating dental issues early is the best way to keep your child’s teeth and jaw healthy for a beautiful smile throughout their life. Invisalign has quickly become the most popular treatment options available for children.

At Fredericksburg Orthodontics, we want to help your child light up the world with their smile. Our practice has helped patients in the Fredericksburg area for over 16 years, and we’re looking forward to helping your child achieve the perfect smile through Invisalign®.

Is Your Child a Good Candidate for Invisalign?

Invisalign is an excellent option for functional and aesthetic reasons. If your child is experiencing any of the following orthodontic issues, they may be a good candidate for Invisalign:

  • Undeveloped arch
  • Overcrowding of teeth
  • Improper alignment of teeth
  • Bite issues (underbite, cross bite, overbite)
  • Limited space for adult teeth

It’s also important to consider your child’s responsibility level before they begin their Invisalign treatment. Your child must be responsible enough to wear their retainer for the recommended amount of time or not lose it when they remove it to eat and drink. If you think that your child isn’t ready for this responsibility, you may want to explore other orthodontic options, such as a palate expander.

How Invisalign for Kids Works

Invisalign for kids works by expanding your child’s jawline or palate to make room for adult teeth to grow in and correct bite issues. The Invisalign procedure starts with a consultation at our office to determine your child’s needs and if Invisalign would be the most beneficial solution for them. After this orthodontic consultation, if your child receives approval, their orthodontist will begin taking pictures of their teeth to use for their aligner.

Your child will wear their aligner throughout the day and night until they reach proper teeth alignment. Throughout the process, your child may receive replacement aligners as their teeth move into position.

Benefits of Invisalign First

Invisalign is transparent, allowing the appearance of your child’s smile to remain the same to increase their self-confidence. Your child may also experience less pain throughout their treatment thanks to the comfortable, flexible material that makes up their plastic aligners.

You’ll quickly see improvements in your child’s teeth and gum health. When your child’s teeth are properly aligned, they can avoid future issues such as jaw problems and tooth decay.
