Phase 1 Orthodontic Treatment with Invisalign First
It’s important to diagnose and treat orthodontic issues in children early. If these issues have the opportunity to fully develop, your child’s orthodontic issues can become serious. By starting treatment between the ages of 7-10 years, our experts here at Bee Cave Orthodontics will be able to take advantage of your child’s dental and jaw growth. Our goal for Phase 1 treatment is to develop young jaws and/or arches to make room for existing teeth and for incoming permanent teeth. Phase 1 orthodontic treatment can help to minimize and avoid the need for teeth extractions when done right. If your child is ready for Phase 1, consult our Invisalign First expert Dr. D. She will design a customized digital treatment plan for your child to address their needs. Invisalign First is gentler and very effective in expanding, creating space and correcting bite issues.
What Issues Need Early Intervention with Orthodontics
What Kind of Problems can a Crossbite Cause?
A crossbite can make your teeth wear down or chip. It can also make your gums start to recede or make little notches above your gum line. This kind of damage can lead to painful gum problems or even bone loss!
When you don’t have enough room in your jaw for your teeth to fit normally, your teeth can bunch up, overlap and twist, sometimes getting pushed to the front or the back.
What Kind of Problems can Crowding Cause?
Crowded teeth can make it hard to brush and floss well. Then it’s easier for plaque, tartar, and harmful bacterial to build up — and down the line, this can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Your crowded teeth can also get worse over time.
An underbite is when you close your mouth and your lower front teeth are in front of your upper teeth. In many cases, this is actually a problem with your lower jaw being too far forward.
What Kind of Problems can an Underbite Cause?
An underbite can make it hard to chew properly and speak clearly, and it might cause your teeth to wear down more quickly.
An overbite is when your upper front teeth overlap with your lower front teeth. Most people have at least a little overbite.
What Kind of Problems can an Overbite Cause?
When your overbite is too large, your doctor might tell you you have a deep bite. This can cause problems, from your teeth wearing down to pain in your jaw. Doctors use a percentage to describe overbites, and 5 to 25 percent is ideal.
What is Invisalign First?
Invisalign First is the perfect treatment for children ages 6-10 who need Phase 1 orthodontic treatment. Invisalign First utilizes the same advanced technology as regular Invisalign clear aligners so you expect the same high-quality results from this trusted brand! Children who are candidates for this effective and innovative treatment will not need to go through traditional orthodontic treatments such as metal expanders, distalizers, headgear and braces! Invisalign First is here to help children who experience issues with overcrowding, spacing, alignment, protrusions, arch development and expansion.
Why Invisalign First?
Invisalign First treatment addresses early childhood orthodontic problems while making room for your children’s adult teeth. Invisalign First is a Phase 1 orthodontic treatment which means this treatment is used specifically for children who have a mixture of baby and adult teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners can be removed during the day. Instead of having to deal with the hassle of braces, clear aligners can be removed before eating or teeth brushing. This helps with both comfort and dental hygiene for children who are still working on finding the right dental routine. Invisalign First is also designed to be comfortable so your child won’t have to deal with the discomfort and pain that comes along with having braces.
