As a parent, you want the best for your child. That includes making sure they have healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. If your child needs orthodontic treatment, you may be wondering whether traditional braces or Invisalign® First is the right choice. As a Diamond Plus c® Provider, Dr. Yazji is here to help you make an informed decision. In this blog post, we’ll explore the benefits of Invisalign® First and why it’s the right choice for early orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign® First is a treatment designed specifically for children who still have baby teeth. It uses clear aligners that are custom-made for your child’s mouth. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® First aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating and brushing. The treatment is also less painful than traditional braces and requires fewer office visits. According to a study published in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, patients who received Invisalign® treatment experienced less pain than those who received traditional braces. This is because the aligners are made of smooth plastic, which is less likely to irritate the soft tissues of the mouth compared to the brackets and wires used in traditional braces.
One of the main benefits of Invisalign® First is that it’s a more convenient option for parents and children alike. With traditional braces, your child will need to visit the orthodontist every four to six weeks for adjustments. These appointments can be time-consuming and may require taking your child out of school, missing work, and disrupting your family’s routine. In contrast, Invisalign® First requires fewer visits to the orthodontist, making it a more convenient option for busy parents.
Invisalign® First is also more comfortable than traditional braces. The aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable plastic material that won’t irritate your child’s cheeks or gums. This makes it easier for your child to eat, speak, and play sports without discomfort.
Another benefit of Invisalign® First might be even more effective than traditional braces in treating certain orthodontic issues. Invisalign® First can correct a wide range of problems, including crowding, spacing, and crossbites. It can also help guide the growth of your child’s jaw, ensuring that their adult teeth come in properly aligned.
Additionally, there are no restrictions on what foods can be eaten during treatment, which is a common concern with traditional braces.
If you had braces when you were younger, you may be skeptical of this new treatment method. However, it’s important to understand that orthodontic technology has come a long way since you were a child. Invisalign® First has been clinically proven to be just as effective as traditional braces in treating a wide range of orthodontic issues.
Furthermore, Invisalign® First offers many advantages over traditional braces. It’s more convenient, comfortable, and effective. It also allows your child to maintain good oral hygiene, as the aligners can be removed for brushing and flossing.
