Children’s Invisalign Aligners
Clear aligners such as the well known Invisalign aligner system are plastic moulds worn over the teeth that are changed every 7- 10 days.
They can be used for some orthodontic treatments and are extremely popular owing to the wearer’s ability to take them out to eat and for activities like sport, singing and public speaking. They are really discreet too.
Being removable, aligners are easy to keep clean. It will be easier for your child to keep their teeth clean during treatment. One of the main benefits is that your child’s diet won’t be as restricted, whereas hard or chewy foods have to be avoided with fixed braces.
Your child will still have to be diligent with their oral hygiene. The aligners need to be worn for 22 hours a day to achieve the desired movement.
Treatment begins with a digital scan of the teeth that is sent to Invisalign along with a detailed prescription by our specialist orthodontists. Click here to arrange your digital scan.
