A clear solution for our littlest patients! At Advanced Orthodontics, we highly recommend having your child seen by an experienced orthodontist around their 7th birthday. Why so soon? Early orthodontic treatment isn’t for everyone but in specific cases, a child comes to us with moderate to severe orthodontic issues that just can’t wait for later treatment. This is referred to as Phase 1 treatment and it happens before all of a child’s permanent teeth have erupted.
However we know it’s hard to imagine your little one in braces at such an early age. That’s why we’re excited to tell you that Invisalign is now an option for our younger patients in need of Phase 1 treatment! The same impressive Invisalign technology adapted for children who have mixed adult and juvenile teeth, who are 7 to 10-years-old.
The benefits are clear: The technology has the same benefits Invisalign has always offered: no food restrictions, no change in brushing or cleaning, and less chance of emergency visits. We know your child’s health is precious – this technology was extensively tested prior to release and our orthodontic specialists have found it to be a great tool for early orthodontic treatment.
No goop, no worries! At Advanced Orthodontics, we utilize state-of-the-art, iTero® digital scanner, which is used to take 3D impressions on each patient, allowing us to permanently retire that uncomfortable, gooey, impressions material that is typically used. At the same time, it provides more precise information for better fitting appliances and enables shorter appointment times.
