At King Orthodontics, we are a Diamond+ Invisalign provider and happy to be providing our clients with the revolutionary Invisalign First treatment. With this treatment, we can improve your child’s smile as they grow, rather than waiting until they are finished growing for orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign First is designed to treat a wide range of simple and complex straightening issues in growing children. Issues that can be treated with these clear aligners include:
Just like Invisalign and Invisalign Teen, the Invisalign First aligners are easy to remove for brushing and flossing, making it easier for your children to maintain good oral hygiene. These clear aligners are also designed to be comfortable for your child to wear, with no rubbing from brackets or poking from wires like with traditional braces.
Invisalign® clear aligners are virtually invisible. The eyes will be on your smile, and not your treatment.
The clear plastic material of the aligners is gentle on cheeks and gums.
You can take your aligners out to eat, practice musical instruments, brush your teeth, or attend important events.
Clear aligners are custom-molded with your dream smile in mind, and we use state-of-the-art digital scans to create precise molds.
As your child grows up, their smile grows with them. In some cases, even if they still have baby teeth, it could be a great time for children between the ages of 6 and 10 to begin orthodontic treatment.
At this age, the expert orthodontists at King Orthodontics will be able to diagnose issues that may require early treatment as the issue develops. If you are interested in learning more about Invisalign First and how it can help your child’s smile, contact us today!Schedule Consult
Learn more about Invisalign by reading through the common questions we get from patients.
First, an intra-oral scan of your mouth is completed at your initial consultation appointment. Dr. King then creates a digital treatment plan that is totally customized to your oral care needs. This means that every single tooth movement is pre-programmed from the outset. Using this information, your braces are manufactured utilizing 3D printing to accommodate each tooth’s shape and intended movement. Dr. King is also provided with 3D printed trays that are custom to your teeth to ensure your braces are placed in the exact positions needed for the most efficient and effective treatment.
LightForce Braces are composed of white ceramic. These white brackets provide you with the ability to dress up or dress down. You can also choose clear ligature bands or add a pop of color with colored ligature bands.
Once we’ve submitted your scan, we will also provide a suggested treatment plan within 48 hours to be reviewed by a doctor. Once the treatment plan has been approved, you can expect your braces to come within 4-6 weeks. When they arrive, we will schedule an appointment to place them on your teeth. Bonding the braces to the teeth takes about five minutes.
Luckily, the braces are shipped with a set of backup brackets. We can use these to replace your broken or lost bracket without the need to rescan since the brace is custom-made to your tooth’s anatomy, which does not change.
Invisalign will have a minimal impact on your daily life. The aligners are clear and nearly invisible and can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. They can also be removed for special occasions, playing sports, or playing an instrument.
No. You can remove your aligners before eating, so you don’t have to restrict yourself from foods such as caramel or popcorn like you would with traditional braces.
Children, teens, and adults can use Invisalign as an alternative to metal braces. Nearly all simple to complex bite issues and teeth-straightening problems can be treated with Invisalign. Your dentist can perform an exam to determine if Invisalign will meet your treatment needs.
You should wear your aligners 20-22 hours a day, only removing them to eat, drink, brush, and floss. You can expect to change to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks.
You can use the Invisalign Cleaning System to care for your aligners, or you can brush them with a toothbrush and toothpaste and rinse them with lukewarm water. Avoid using hot water because it can warp the plastic, ruining the aligner. Be sure to brush your teeth after every meal before you place your aligners back into your mouth.
