INVISALIGN TECHNOLOGY INTRODUCES INVISALIGN CLEAR ALIGNERS FOR
PHASE 1 TREATMENT OF YOUNGER PATIENTS WITH EARLY MIXED DENTITION
Invisalign® announced it is extending the Invisalign product family with Invisalign First clear aligners, designed with features specifically for younger patients with early mixed dentition (with a mixture of primary/baby and permanent teeth). Phase 1 treatment is early interceptive orthodontic treatment for young patients, traditionally done through arch expanders, or partial metal braces, before all permanent teeth have erupted – typically at ages 6 through 10 years. Invisalign First clear aligners are designed specifically to address a broad range of younger patients’ malocclusions, including shorter clinical crowns, management of erupting dentition, and predictable dental arch expansion.
As an authorized Invisalign orthodontist, Dr. Monacell will evaluate your situation and explain if Invisalign Teen will be an option for you.
If so, you will receive a customized set of aligners made specifically for your needs. For the best results, you will need to wear your Invisalign aligners 20 to 22 hours each day. To reassure your parents, your aligners will have blue compliance indicators to prove that you are wearing them as much as you should.
Every week or so, you will begin wearing a new set of aligners. Each set is designed to move your teeth more towards their ideal position. By the end of the process, you should have a healthy, attractive smile.
Invisalign First® offers:
Because Invisalign aligners are made with clear, flexible plastic your friends will barely be able to see that you’re wearing them. And while you’ll need to wear them most of the time, you can remove them for special occasions like a school dance or sporting event. Plus, they work up to 2 1/2 times faster than some other braces, meaning you’ll have a beautiful smile faster than you could have hoped. Invisalign helps you be confident in your looks during and after treatment.
Traditional metal braces make daily brushing and flossing difficult. Food gets caught in the wires and brackets and is hard to remove. As a result, you are more prone to tooth decay and gum disease. With Invisalign braces, you simply remove your aligners when you eat and care for your teeth. Cleaning the aligners is easy as well, so you don’t subject your teeth to excess bacteria and food particles. As a plus, your parents will be more relaxed and not feel they have to monitor your oral hygiene.
