Orthodontists in Asheville, NC, Answer - Is Invisalign Treatment Appropriate for Children? | TS Orthodontics

Does Your Child Need Braces?

While there is no set rule on when to begin orthodontic treatment, most children get braces between ages 10-14. Our office often sees even younger patients, whose dentists have recommended an orthodontic evaluation. In fact, you may be surprised to hear that the American Association of Orthodontists advises parents to have their children evaluated by age 7, as issues like a crooked bite or overcrowding start to become apparent. According to our orthodontists in Asheville, NC, however, this does not mean your child will need treatment right away.

Successful Invisalign treatment versus traditional braces will depend on your child’s personality or level of maturity. The clear aligners need to be worn for at least 22 hours per day and are only removed for activities like eating or playing an instrument. Unless your child continuously forgets to put the aligners back in, Invisalign is usually a great option for children of all ages.

Invisalign Makes Orthodontic Treatment Easy & Convenient

Patients of all ages love the benefits of straightening their teeth with the patented Invisalign system. The clear aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone noticing. You can brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene, and there are no metal wires or brackets to cause mouth abrasions.

Better Compliance with the Help of Invisalign Teen

If you want to oversee the Invisalign process, or simply remind your child about wearing the aligners, you will appreciate Invisalign Teen’s helpful blue-dot indicator on each aligner. When your child wears the aligners as prescribed by our orthodontists, the blue dot will fade to clear to let you know when it’s time for the next set of aligners. With your busy schedule surrounding work, school, and extracurricular activities, your child’s orthodontia is one less thing to worry about!
