Children between the ages of 6 to 10 years old generally have a mix of baby teeth and adult teeth. At this stage of development, teeth can already show signs of crowding or jaw discrepancy. If diagnosed early, Phase 1 of Orthodontic Treatment can be provided using Invisalign First to create space for the adult teeth that need to grow in and to correct issues with the jaws not lining up. Invisalign First is an important step in Interceptive Orthodontics to prevent more complicated problems developing making future Orthodontic treatment long and complicated.

Invisalign First prepares the mouth and jaws to receive the growing adult teeth into their ideal positions. The adult teeth can then be allowed to grow and develop fully into their positions. Once the adult teeth have fully erupted, Phase 2 of Orthodontic Treatment can then take place to complete alignment. Phase 2 of Orthodontic Treatment is much simpler, quicker and less traumatic when Invisalign First has already prepared the way.
