Invisalign to Correct Overbite for Teenagers or Kids

Invisalign to Correct Overbite for Teenagers or Kids

Are you wondering if Invisalign is the right option to treat your child or teen’s overbite? Invisalign can be a great option for kids, tweens, and teens with dental issues. Read on to find out if they’re the right choice for your child!

Is Invisalign a good option for kids?

Short answer: yes! Invisalign is a great option for growing kids and teens. Invisalign has been proven to work to shape little smiles for kids aged 6-10. Invisalign First is a special type of tray designed to fit these growing ages even better. Invisalign treatment for kids often usually go smoother than adults because they are more adaptable to having the trays in their mouth and are not constantly removing them. Invisalign can also be just as effective as braces for treating kids and teens with underbite, crowding, overbite, and gaps in between teeth.

Why is Invisalign good for kids and teens?

Here are a few reasons why Invisalign is a great option to treat your child’s overbite or other dental issues.

  • More comfortable and less painful than braces.
  • Invisalign is removable which makes it easier for kids and teens to brush their teeth properly and maintain their oral hygiene.
  • Less cavities! Invisalign makes it easier for kids and teens to prevent the dreaded cavities.
  • Invisalign is effective for growing mouths. Your dentist can put together a unique plan to make your child’s Invisalign treatment grow with them and give them a perfect smile.
  • Less dental visits! We understand that dental visits are not every child and teenager’s favorite activity. Invisalign requires less visits and appointments than braces.
  • Safer for athletes. If your child or teenager is active and plays sports, Invisalign is less likely to lead to activity related mouth injuries. They can remove the trays for sports and other activities.
  • Your child can eat whatever they want! With braces, kids and teens are limited to not eat sticky or dangerous foods for braces like gum and popcorn. Invisalign should be worn about 20-22 hours a day so kids can just take them out to have a sweet treat every once in a while.
  • No dealing with emergency appointments for broken wires or brackets.
  • Boosts confidence! Who doesn’t need more confidence as a kid or teen? Invisalign is barely visible and can give your child more confidence in their smile.

Is Invisalign the best option for my child or teen?

Are you still not sure if Invisalign is the best option for your child or teen? Ask yourself these few questions:

  • Does my child take direction well?
  • Do I trust them to not lose their trays and wear them regularly?

If answered yes to both of these questions, Invisalign may be a great fit for your child. Ask your dentist about Invisalign and they will put together a personalized plan for your child.
