Invisalign® First for Kids

James River Orthodontics is the premier location in Richmond, Virginia, for you, your child and the rest of your family to receive Invisalign treatment. Ranked in the top 1% of Invisalign providers in the country, we’re experts in providing compassionate patient care that gives you a long-lasting, healthy and beautiful smile.

Invisalign First is a special type of Invisalign designed to keep up with kids’ needs. When they use Invisalign tray aligners, they won’t ever miss out on sports or Halloween candy due to orthodontic treatments. This treatment gives children the opportunity to experience all the joys of childhood without thinking about their braces first.

Why Choose Invisalign First?

When a child gets traditional metal braces to correct their orthodontic concerns, it can cause complications with the child’s self-esteem and require them to take on the responsibility of caring carefully for their teeth. Not every kid is ready to take them on, especially when they hear about painful wire tightening and other necessary adjustments.

With Invisalign First, the child wears a set of invisible, removable aligners that move their teeth into the perfect position slowly. Since they’re invisible, your child gets a straightened smile without a sudden change in appearance. Since they’re removable, cleaning teeth is just as easy as it’s ever been. They won’t have to navigate around brackets and wires to keep their smile clean. As an added benefit, they also won’t have to limit their diet to avoid hard and sticky foods since they remove their aligners while eating.

How Invisalign for Kids Works

All children should receive an orthodontic evaluation by age 7. At this point, an orthodontist can check how the child’s adult teeth are growing in and prepare for any crowding, misalignments or other concerns that could indicate a need for interceptive treatment. 

James River Orthodontics provides a free consultation to every new patient, including your child! When you come into our practice, you’ll meet with Dr. Scarborough or Dr. Loflin, who will examine your child’s mouth and take digital impressions for assessments. If your child is determined to be a candidate for Invisalign, we can start treatment during the same appointment.
