Invisalign® First in Raleigh, NC

A simple and happier treatment option for kids.

Invisalign First is a series of removable custom-fitted clear appliances (“aligners”) that addresses the most common early orthodontic treatment needs for children who still have a mixture of permanent and baby teeth. The aligners are designed to treat a broad range of younger patients’ malocclusions, manage the erupting teeth, and guide the development of the dental arches. We can determine if your child is a candidate for Invisalign First during a complimentary consultation.

The first step for Invisalign First is a simple scan of your child’s teeth. No more messy impressions! The scan creates a 3-D model of the teeth that is used to map out the desired tooth movement, and to fabricate a series of removable aligners. The aligners are worn 20 hours per day and changed weekly. The movement of the teeth is monitored at three-month intervals.

Fixed Appliances vs. Invisalign First

In years past, children with a mixture of baby and adult teeth began orthodontic treatment in Raleigh, North Carolina, with a fixed appliance. Fixed appliances can be very uncomfortable for young children and impact their lifestyles. Invisalign First changes all that.

Invisalign First means:
    • No goopy impressions
    • No more poking wires or inconvenient broken braces
    • No diet restrictions – kids can eat all their favorite foods without worrying about breaking their appliances
    • Fewer appointments than traditional orthodontic appliances – every three months instead of every 4 weeks
    • If patients lose their aligners, they simply move on to the next aligner in the series
    • Effective and predictable orthodontic treatment to save parents time and money
