About Invisalign

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to gradually shift your teeth into their correct position. These aligners are custom-made for each patient, ensuring a comfortable fit and effective results. The clear design makes them nearly invisible when worn, offering a discreet alternative to traditional braces.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign works using a series of aligners, each designed to make slight adjustments to the position of your teeth. You’ll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, then move on to the next set. Over time, your teeth will gradually move into their desired positions. Regular check-ups allow us to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.

Spark Aligners

In addition to Invisalign, we also offer Spark Aligners, another excellent clear aligner system. Spark Aligners are designed using advanced technology to provide efficient and effective tooth movement. They’re made from a clear, durable material that’s more transparent than other aligners, making them an even more discreet option for straightening your smile.

Invisalign For Kids

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, children should have their first orthodontic evaluation by the age of seven. At this stage, the jaw is still growing and the first adult molars have typically erupted, allowing your orthodontist to spot potential issues early. Early intervention can help guide proper jaw growth, correct harmful oral habits, and create space for crowded teeth, leading to a healthier smile as your child grows.

Invisalign First is a specially designed system for children who are still losing baby teeth and have a mix of permanent and primary teeth. These clear aligners offer a host of benefits:

  • Comfort Unlike traditional braces, these aligners are smooth and comfortable with no sharp edges to irritate the mouth.
  • Removability The aligners are removable, making it easy for kids to eat their favorite foods and maintain their regular oral hygiene routine.
  • Discreet They are virtually invisible, providing a discreet solution that won’t affect a child’s confidence.
  • Customizable Each aligner is custom-made using advanced technology to fit your child’s unique mouth and meet their specific treatment needs.

Two-Phase Treatment

Two-phase treatment is a specialized process combining tooth straightening and physical, and facial changes. This process is beneficial for achieving the best aesthetic and functional results.

Phase One This phase aims at correcting jaw growth, helping the upper and lower jaws to accommodate all permanent teeth. It can also correct thumb-sucking or other oral habits that can create problems later.

Phase Two This phase involves placing braces on the permanent teeth to ensure each tooth has an exact location in the mouth. The second phase usually begins around age 11 or older.

At Smile Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, we believe in providing your child with the best possible orthodontic care. Our team of experienced professionals is committed to creating a comfortable, positive experience for your child, from their first visit to their final reveal. With Invisalign for Kids, we’re excited to offer a modern, effective solution for creating healthy, beautiful smiles.
