Mix of Baby & Permanent Teeth (Phase 1)

What you need to know about transforming your child’s little smile with Invisalign® First clear aligners.

For demonstration purposes only.

What is Phase 1?

As a child grows, their smile grows with them. And even with baby teeth, it may be the perfect time for children ages 6 to 10 to start orthodontic treatment. This is known as Phase 1 treatment.

What are the advantages of Phase 1 treatment?

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.

  • Can prevent pre-existing bite issues from getting worse.

  • Can fix existing teeth straightening conditions.

  • Can improve the appearance of a growing child’s smile.

  • Can help with oral habits such as thumb sucking or tongue thrusting.

  • Can make Phase 2 treatment shorter and easier.

Can Invisalign First aligners be used for Phase 1 treatment?

Yes, Invisalign First aligners can fix a broad range of teeth straightening issues, including crowding, spacing, and narrow dental arches.
