This treatment will widen your child’s upper jaw, make room for permanent teeth to come in properly, and create an ideal bite.
Early orthodontics can treat habits or problems such as crowded teeth, narrow or underdeveloped jaws, large or overdeveloped jaws, crossbites, and overbites.
Why does my child need this?
Invisalign® will help your child by creating space in the mouth and:
- Lessening the need for jaw surgery in the future.
- Helping reduce the risk of adult teeth getting stuck in the bone.
- Reducing the need to have adult teeth removed later.
- Lowering the chances of needing future orthodontic treatment or making treatment simpler.
How does it work?
By wearing the trays and changing them every week, slight pressure in the right direction widens the jaw while your child grows, which makes more space in the mouth for erupting adult teeth. Trays need to be worn 20-22 hours per day. While they’re in the mouth, they’re working!
