INVISALIGN FIRST: CLEAR ALIGHNERS FOR kIDS 7+
At Neo Smiles Dental Studio, your trusted orthodontist clinic chain in Singapore, we’re here to guide you through the incredible world of Invisalign First, a cutting-edge orthodontic treatment designed exclusively for children aged 7 to 11. Discover why Invisalign First is the perfect choice for your child’s smile transformation and how our experienced orthodontists make all the difference.
As a child grows, their smile grows with them. And even with baby teeth, it may be time for children aged 6 to 10 to start orthodontic treatment. This is known as Phase 1 treatment.
At this stage, doctors can see issues that may need early treatment to address a developing problem.
- Phase 1 treatment for growing children with a mix of baby and permanent teeth.*
- Phase 2 treatment for pre-teens and teens when most or all permanent teeth have erupted.
The goal of Phase 1 treatment is to develop young jaws and/or arches to make room for existing teeth and for incoming permanent teeth
Why Invisalign First for Kids?
- Personalised Treatment:
- Enhanced Comfort:
- Improved Oral Hygiene:
Invisalign aligners are removable, making it easier for your child to maintain excellent oral hygiene. Unlike braces, there are no tricky spaces or wires to navigate while brushing and flossing.
- Discreet Appearance:
The clear aligners are nearly invisible, allowing your child to feel confident during their treatment without the noticeable appearance of traditional braces.
- Early Intervention:
Invisalign First is specially designed for children aged 7 to 11, which is often the ideal age for early orthodontic intervention. Early treatment can help prevent more complex issues in the future.
- Fewer Office Visits:
Invisalign First treatment plans typically require fewer orthodontic appointments compared to traditional braces, providing convenience for parents and children alike.
The Invisalign First Journey: Steps for Kids Aged 7 to 11
Step 1: Comprehensive Consultation
The journey begins with a thorough consultation at Neo Smiles Dental Studio. Our experienced orthodontists will assess your child’s oral health and discuss their specific needs. We’ll determine if Invisalign First is the best choice for your child.
Step 2: Customised Treatment Plan & X-rays
If Invisalign First is deemed suitable, our orthodontists will create a customised treatment plan tailored to your child’s unique requirements. This plan outlines the expected duration of treatment and the projected results. Two X-rays will also be taken to see your child’s changing dentition.
Step 3: Precise Digital Scanning
We utilise 3D intra-oral cameras (iTero & 3Shape Digital Scanners) to create a 3D digital model of your child’s teeth. This ensures the aligners are custom-fabricated to provide precise and effective treatment.
Step 4: Aligner Fabrication
Based on the 3D model, a series of clear aligners will be meticulously crafted for your child. These aligners will gently guide your child’s teeth into their desired positions over time.
Step 5: Commencing Treatment
Your child will begin wearing the aligners as prescribed by our orthodontists. Regular check-up appointments will be scheduled at Neo Smiles Dental Studio to monitor their progress and make any necessary adjustments.
Step 6: Monitoring and Adjustments
Our experienced orthodontists will closely monitor your child’s progress throughout their treatment. If any adjustments are required, we’ll make them to ensure the treatment stays on course.
Step 7: Completion of Treatment
Upon successfully completing the treatment plan, your child will unveil a radiant and confident smile. To maintain these results, our orthodontists may recommend a retainer.
