Invisalign First Cobham, Surrey

One of the first Surrrey dental practices to offer Invisalign for children In Cobham

Invisalign First is the latest offering from Invisalign, and it is especially made for growing children.

Without impacting any part of a child’s growth, and avoiding the need for traditional metal braces, Invisalign First clear aligners help to straighten children’s teeth during the growing phase of jaws and teeth.

In some instances, the orthodontist will not need to perform any tooth extractions, which is a relief for both parents and their children.

What is Invisalign First?

Invisalign First is innovative orthodontic treatment designed for young children to help correct issues with tooth crowding, spacing, protruding teeth, and their overall smile.

The custom clear aligners are designed to gradually expand your child’s jawline over time; this helps to straighten their teeth now, and prevent future problems too.

Why Invisalign First?

Invisalign First is a unique orthodontic treatment for children as it features dental arch expansion and creates room for the new incoming adult teeth.

Invisalign First can be used to correct orthodontic issues, such as:
• Spacing/crowding
• Teeth alignment
• Arch development and jaw expansion

Invisalign First is a Phase 1 treatment, only suitable for growing children between the ages of 6 to 10 years, who have a mixture of baby teeth and new adult teeth coming through. The Phase 2 part of the treatment is for pre-teenagers and teenagers when nearly all of their permanent teeth have erupted. For adults and older teenagers who are looking for dental corrections, alternative treatment such as Invisalign Full, Invisalign Teen, and Invisalign Lite are available.

How does Invisalign First work?

Invisalign First treatment involves expanding and contouring your child’s jawline via a process called dental arch expansion. This involves gently pushing your child’s teeth over time to increase the width of their dental arch. The aligners also gently move your child’s teeth around as needed.
