The Invisalign treatment process is an outstanding solution that helps patients correct many problems with their smiles. Our experts at Ferrari & Aldieri Dental Associates in Farmingdale, NY are excited to offer Invisalign treatment to people who want some of the best smiles around.

One of the great things about the Invisalign system is that it can work for people of varying ages, including children, who still have some of their baby teeth. Invisalign clear aligners can help adjust a child’s baby teeth to make it easier for their adult teeth to fully develop.

Invisalign treatment offers a special solution for children ages 6 – 12 who still have some of their baby teeth. Dr. Angela Ferrari can customize an Invisalign treatment plan designed for your child’s teeth. This makes it easier for their teeth to develop while also improving how their future permanent teeth will develop.

Why would a child with baby teeth need Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign treatment is suitable for kids with baby teeth because it can help position a child’s adult teeth in their correct spots. The position of a child’s baby teeth can dictate where the adult teeth will appear. Invisalign clear aligners can correct how those adult teeth form and adjust their positions to where the adult teeth can grow well. Any further Invisalign treatments on a child’s adult teeth will be easier to manage when the baby teeth are positioned well.

Invisalign treatment can also help correct various negative habits children may have, including thumb-sucking or sticking out their tongues. It is harder for the child to engage in these negative habits when managed well.

The fixes Invisalign treatment provides can also correct a child’s bite. By adjusting how the teeth are aligned, Invisalign aligners prevent possible bite issues from becoming worse.

How does Invisalign for kids with baby teeth work?

Our expert dental team at Ferrari & Aldieri Dental Associates in Farmingdale, NY can help correct your child’s smile the right way. The Invisalign treatment approach for baby teeth involves reviewing how a child’s baby teeth are arranged and how they may be repositioned to support the growth of healthy adult teeth. The work includes moving the teeth to where the baby teeth can come out on time.

A second Invisalign treatment plan with Dr. Ferrari will likely be necessary after the child’s adult teeth fully develop. But that second plan won’t be as intensive as their first one.
