What is Invisalign First?

Invisalign First is the next generation of Invisalign, a clear aligner method specifically designed for children. The biggest difference of Invisalign First is that it can be intervened as soon as the permanent teeth have erupted and this intervention gives almost absolute results.

Because the process of permanent teeth eruption will accompany the development of the face, if the permanent teeth are intervened early, the teeth will not only grow regularly but also help the child have a harmonious and balanced face.

The treatment package will be divided into 2 main phases:

Stage 1: For the young age from 5 to 12 years old, still without the need to wear traditional metal braces. It allows early treatment of dental problems ranging from simple to complex such as crooked teeth, crowded teeth, wide teeth, protruding teeth, malocclusion, overbite, crossbite… These problems If not treated early, it will affect the craniofacial development in children.

Stage 2: For children aged 10-12 years old, helping to perfect the bite after tooth replacement. This is the stage of perfecting the baby’s teeth. If the child has been pre-adjusted at stage 1, the remaining problems in stage 2 will be much milder.

Special features of Invisalign First

Compared to regular Invisalign, the First package for children has some more special features:

  • The compliance indicator is green, allowing parents or doctors to know if the child is wearing it for enough time
  • MA feature (Mandibular advancement- Slide the lower jaw forward) treats underdevelopment of the lower jaw bone, helps to orient the development of the lower jaw bone in a good position.
  • To create space for teeth in children who have not yet replaced or grown teeth, the tray will still move the misaligned teeth next to it and keep the space and the right size for the permanent teeth to grow in the right position.

However, to achieve the optimal effect of the above Invisalign First treatment package, the cooperation of the child and the attention of the parents to ensure that the child wears the aligner for the time recommended by the doctor is extremely important.
