Invisalign aligners are an amazing solution for straighter teeth, especially compared to the pain and appearance of orthodontic options like braces. Take a look at Invisalign First, the new innovation that has recently been added to the Invisalign product family.

Introducing Invisalign First

Invisalign First clear aligners are a new product designed for younger patients who have a mixture of primary teeth, baby teeth, and permanent teeth. Before this invention, these individuals were not able to use Invisalign. With Invisalign First, however, they can receive Phase 1 treatment designed specifically for issues common in younger patients’ teeth, such as:

  • Shorter clinical crowns
  • Erupting dentition
  • Predictable dental arch expansion
  • Other malocclusions and structure problems

Phase 1 treatment through Invisalign First effectively replaces the need for arch expanders and metal braces among this age group. This means that younger patients can enjoy the aesthetic benefits and comfort of traditional Invisalign while addressing their unique dental needs.

How Does Invisalign First Work?

Invisalign First is a straightening solution that’s similar to the Invisalign aligners that adults use. Invisalign First uses the same technology as its predecessor, and the aligners look the same and are just as comfortable and convenient. However, the new invention has been designed to address the specific problems related to early alignment in children. To correct foundation issues and ensure that the teeth erupt correctly, Invisalign First features:

  • SmartForce technology, which helps supports proper arch form development.
  • SmartStage technology, which includes optimized attachments and other features to ensure a correctly developed arch form.
  • SmartTrack technology, which helps maintain a comfortable fit while the aligners guide the teeth.
  • Expanded eruption compensation, which allows Invisalign to correct erupting or changing dentition.

Clear Invisalign aligners are a wonderful solution for patients who need treatment to adjust their teeth. Consult with a dentist at the New York City Cosmetic Dentistry Center to see if Invisalign or the new offering, Invisalign First, could work for you or your children.
