Early Treatment With Invisalign For Kids
The American Association of Orthodontics recommends all children see an orthodontic specialist by the time they are seven years old. This is because during this time a child’s adult teeth are erupting and an orthodontic specialist can detect problems before they become major issues. This type of early treatment allows our orthodontists an opportunity to help shape the jaw as it is growing and as the adult teeth are emerging. By seeing an orthodontist early, most children greatly reduce the amount of time they’ll need to be in treatment later.
At Garcia Orthodontics, our experienced orthodontists believe that early treatment can benefit the development of your child’s smile. You can trust that we will do everything in our power to give your child the healthy, beautiful smile they deserve, which will serve to improve their confidence throughout their formative years and beyond. Please contact us so we can plan a consultation to see if your child is a good candidate for Invisalign and advise you accordingly.

How Can Kids Benefit From Invisalign?
Comfortable & Discreet
The most obvious benefit of Invisalign for kids is comfort; the plastic aligners are designed to cause less discomfort or irritation on the gums or cheeks than traditional braces. Plus, since they are made with clear plastic, they are much less noticeable than traditional braces making them ideal for children who want to retain their natural smile while undergoing treatment.
Another great benefit of Invisalign is that the aligners are removable, so kids can comfortably eat whatever they want without worrying about food getting stuck in their braces or damaging their brackets or wires. This makes it easier to brush and floss properly, which helps maintain good oral hygiene during treatment. Removable aligners also mean that kids don’t have to give up activities like playing sports or musical instruments while their teeth are being straightened.
Customized Treatment Plan
Invisalign also offers customized treatment plans tailored specifically to each child’s needs. Our team of orthodontists develops each plan based on the child’s age, current dental health, lifestyle habits, and desired outcome of the treatment process. This ensures that your child will get the best results possible from their Invisalign treatment in a timely manner. Our team also monitors your child’s progress throughout their treatment period, so you know about how long it will take before your child has a straighter smile!
