Orthodontic treatment for kids can be a confusing and intimidating process, but at our practice, it doesn’t have to be.

How Invisalign First Benefits Young Patients


More than teens or adults, kids find it hard to deal with discomfort and pain. Invisalign First aligners are made from medical-grade plastic that’s strong enough to gently correct your child’s smile yet are comfortable and smooth to wear. Patients may still experience some level of soreness or pressure associated with teeth moving, but it usually goes away very quickly.


While braces are highly effective, they can be hard to get used to for kids. They restrict the food choices that your child can eat, cause mouth sores, and it’s hard for them to keep their teeth clean. Invisalign First aligners are removable, so your child can take them out as needed to brush and floss, or simply to enjoy their favorite foods. If they are playing sports or engaging in other activities, they can easily remove the aligners and put them back on when they’re finished.


We understand how challenging it can be to fit appointments into a busy family schedule. With Invisalign First Tampa, your child will not need frequent visits to the orthodontist, as they would with traditional braces. Plus, orthodontic appointments with Invisalign for kids are quick and simple as they do not require adjustments.


Does your child show anxiety over the thought of wearing braces? Invisalign First aligners are nearly invisible, so they can go about their life without feeling self-conscious about their smile. It’s one of the most notable benefits that even teens and adults appreciate about Invisalign! You only need to keep them clean, and you’ll be amazed at the results.

Is Invisalign for Kids as Powerful as Braces?

Invisalign First is designed to address the same types of orthodontic issues that traditional braces do, including crooked teeth, gaps, and misaligned bites. They align teeth the same way braces do, gradually and consistently, throughout your child’s treatment.

  • First, our orthodontist in Tampa will examine your child’s teeth and discuss the best treatment plan. Every case is unique, so the Invisalign First aligners are customized to match your child’s individual needs. As we get impressions of their teeth and map out the procedure, you’ll be able to get a clear idea of how the treatment will go and what the results will look like.
  • After the initial appointment, your child will receive their aligners and begin their treatment. We’ll review the progress at regular intervals to make sure everything is going according to plan. They will need to wear the aligners for about 20-22 hours per day, having sufficient time to remove them when eating and brushing.
  • Every few weeks or as recommended, the aligners are changed out for a new set, and the teeth start to move into better alignment. In most cases, treatment will be completed in about 9-15 months. But compliance is key to success, so wearing the aligners as intended will ensure that no adjustments will be needed.

FAQs About Invisalign for Kids

How do I take care of the aligners?

It’s important to brush them every day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and mild soap. We suggest using Invisalign’s cleaning system to ensure that the aligners remain free of bacteria, plaque, and other debris. Your child also needs to keep them in a case for safety when not in use.

How much does Invisalign First cost?

The cost of Invisalign First will depend on the complexity of your child’s case and how long their treatment plan is. However, the prices are comparable to traditional braces, so you can expect an estimate within the same range. Check out our cost calculator to get a better idea.
