Early orthodontic intervention is an extremely important treatment for many kids around the ages of 7-11 in order to:
However, despite the enormous benefits of early orthodontic intervention, there are many reasons both parents and dentists avoid this treatment using traditional methods:
Invisalign First has completely revolutionised how we approach early orthodontic intervention. We have known Invisalign to be an ideal treatment for kids but committing to a full Invisalign treatment at such a young age can be overwhelming for parents and the treatment window can expire before all baby teeth have exfoliated. This is why we are so grateful that Dr Marc is one of the very few cosmetic dentists in Australia that is Invisalign First certified. It is essentially an 18 month Invisalign treatment for kids at half the price of standard Invisalign.

Invisalign First works in the same way as Invisalign in that it involves the use of clear invisible aligners that are custom-made to fit your child’s mouth. The aligners are made after taking scans, pictures, and x-rays of your child’s bite. The information is then sent to an Invisalign lab where your child’s custom aligner is made from Dr Marc’s 3D designing.
After the aligners are ready, you will visit our dental office for an initial fitting. We ensure that the aligner properly fits and make any necessary adjustments. The aligners then start to gradually shift your child’s teeth.
The aligners are nearly invisible and support the formation of the jawline and incoming teeth. You can also remove the aligners for eating, drinking, brushing, and other activities.
