Invisalign®for Kids

We use Invisalign First, specially designed for growing mouths, to turn little smiles into big, beautiful, healthy smiles.

With Invisalign First clear aligners, Dr. Matsumoto can address the unique needs of growing children. Early treatment is focused on aligning their teeth while expanding the dental arches to make room for existing teeth and incoming permanent teeth. 

Our goal with Invisalign First treatment is to create a healthy foundation for a beautiful set of permanent teeth to emerge.

A Simple Start

Your child’s Invisalign First treatment starts with a simple scan. No need for goopy putty impressions! From there, every step of your child’s plan is digitally planned and monitored, so you know exactly what to expect throughout the entire process.

What can Invisalign for kids treat?

Invisalign First is generally used as a part of Phase 2 early orthodontic treatment. With these special aligners, Dr. Matsumoto can treat a wide range of orthodontic problems, including (but not limited to):

Why Invisalign First?

A Happier Experience

With removable clear aligners, there’s little interruption to your child’s life and the foods they love are still on the table! Your child’s aligners will be specifically-designed to fit a mixed dentition of baby teeth and permanent teeth, with space held to accommodate teeth that haven’t emerged yet.

As your child progresses through treatment, you’ll see their smile transform little by little with every new set of custom-made aligners.

No Change to Their Oral Hygiene Routine

Your child can continue to brush and floss his or her teeth without hassle! Invisalign First aligners can be removed to clean and soak as often as necessary. Many parents find that Invisalign provides the accommodation their child needs to develop a strong oral hygiene routine that keeps their teeth clean, debris-free and healthy.

Their Smile is in Great Hands

Invisalign technology has been used to transform over 5 million smiles worldwide! 

The orthodontist behind the treatment is what really matters though. While many orthodontists aren’t able to offer Invisalign for children, Dr. Matsumoto has extensive training and experience that enable him to treat children efficiently and accurately—with a gentle, compassionate approach.

Little Smile Transformations are Convenient!

It’s our goal to ensure that your child’s Invisalign process is as easy and convenient for you as possible. 

Once you visit us for your in-person exam, you can use the Dental Monitoring App in lieu of many in-person check-in appointments, so you can reduce the number of in-office visits. Through our convenient app, you can send images and videos of your child’s smile progress throughout your treatment. 

You will still need to visit us on an as-needed basis, depending on the initial exam and progress, so we can ensure that your child’s teeth have a strong foundation for a beautiful smile to emerge.
