Invisalign First: The Ideal Start to Your Child's Orthodontic Journey

At Aspen Orthodontics, we understand the importance of early orthodontic intervention in children. That's why we're proud to offer Invisalign First, a clear aligner treatment specifically designed for the unique needs of growing children.

This innovative approach to Phase One treatment not only aligns teeth but also focuses on the crucial development of the jaw and dental arches, setting the stage for a lifetime of healthy smiles.

What is Invisalign First?

Invisalign First, offered at Aspen Orthodontics, represents a breakthrough in pediatric orthodontic care. Tailored for children in their growth phase, this treatment goes beyond simple teeth alignment. It addresses the overall development of the jaw, regulates the width of dental arches, and creates necessary space for both existing and future permanent teeth.

The Benefits of Phase One Treatment with Invisalign First:

  1. Jaw Development: Invisalign First can effectively guide the growth of your child's jaw, ensuring that it develops correctly and harmoniously.
  2. Arch Expansion: By regulating the width of the upper and lower arches, Invisalign First helps in creating a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing dental structure.
  3. Space for Teeth: Crowding is a common issue in growing children. Invisalign First addresses this by creating space, thereby reducing the likelihood of needing tooth extractions in the future.
  4. Correcting Habits: Habits like thumb sucking can have long-term effects on dental health. Invisalign First helps in correcting such habits, alongside improving minor speech problems.

The Process of Invisalign First Treatment:

Invisalign First treatment begins with a simple scan or impressions of your child's teeth. This digital technology allows for precise planning and visualization of the treatment outcome. The process is transparent, giving you a clear understanding of the treatment journey.

The Aligners:

What sets Invisalign First apart are the removable aligners. Designed to fit smaller teeth and accommodate new ones, these aligners ensure minimal interruption in your child's life. They can continue enjoying their favorite foods without the restrictions typically associated with traditional braces. The comfort and convenience of Invisalign First make it a preferred choice for children and parents alike.

Smart Shifts:

Invisalign First aligners work through a series of small, calculated shifts. These shifts are expertly designed for how little teeth should move, ensuring a gentle yet effective progression towards a straighter smile.

Why Choose Invisalign First?

Invisalign First is not just about straightening teeth; it's about setting the stage for a lifetime of oral health. Here are some reasons why it stands out:

  1. Versatile Treatment: Invisalign First can address a broad range of orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, and narrow arches.
  2. No Food Restrictions: The removable nature of the aligners means children can continue to enjoy their favorite foods.
  3. Easy Oral Hygiene: Maintaining good dental hygiene is straightforward with Invisalign First. Children can brush and floss as usual, keeping their teeth and gums healthy.
  4. Proven Results: Invisalign technology has transformed over 5 million smiles globally, a testament to its effectiveness and reliability.


Invisalign First represents a significant advancement in pediatric orthodontics. By addressing key developmental issues early, it paves the way for a healthier, more aesthetically pleasing dental future for your child. With its ease of use, comfort, and effectiveness, Invisalign First is an excellent choice for beginning your child's orthodontic journey.
