Invisalign® First - Improve Your Child's Smile as They Grow Invisalign Orthodontist Pittsburgh, PA

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.

What is Invisalign First?

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:

  • Spacing
  • Crowding
  • Narrow dental arches

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.

Is My Child a Candidate for Invisalign First?

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!

Invisalign FAQs

Learn more about Invisalign by reading through the common questions we get from patients.

Gather any questions about Invisalign treatment that you may have, such as:
  • How long will my treatment last?
  • Do you accept my dental insurance?
  • Are there any payment plans for Invisalign treatment?
We also recommend that you bring along your insurance card and any dental history information you may have.

You will start the treatment process with a consultation at King Orthodontics with our Invisalign-trained orthodontists. We will evaluate your smile during your initial consultation and answer any questions you may have.

One of the major benefits of this treatment is that the aligners are clear. Unlike traditional braces, people may not even notice that you are wearing Invisalign. Another benefit is the aligners can be removed to eat, drink, floss, and for special occasions. You also don’t have to deal with the maintenance of metal brackets or wires that could break or irritate your gums and cheeks.

To begin your treatment, your orthodontist will create a customized digital treatment plan. This plan will be used to map out the exact movements of your teeth. Your clear aligners will be designed to apply gentle pressure to your teeth at the right place and at the right time based on the specifics of your plan. Your orthodontist will monitor your progress and check that your aligners fit correctly throughout this process.

The clear aligners are made of a flexible plastic material. It is a patented thermoplastic called SmartTrack that was created specifically for Invisalign treatment.

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.
