Early Treatment With Invisalign
Preventative and/or early orthodontic treatment can greatly benefit your child in many ways. As a parent, it is not always obvious when your child needs orthodontic treatment. Staying vigilant and scheduling regular checkups are two essential ways to be proactive. These are some frequent orthodontic problems that arise at an early age:
- Crooked or overlapping teeth
- Large gaps between teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Prominent overbite or underbite
- Excessive mouth breathing, thumb sucking, or tongue thrusting
- Premature or delayed loss of baby teeth
- Difficulty chewing, biting, or drinking
As a child grows, their smile grows with them. Invisalign First clear aligner treatment is designed for predictable results and a positive experience while addressing the unique needs of growing children. While not every case is a candidate for Invisalign, we find that many of our younger patients make excellent Invisalign candidates!
Benefits Of Invisalign For Kids
Healthy Smiles Improve Self-Confidence
Studies have shown that a person’s physical appearance – everything from hair and clothing style down to height and weight – can have either a negative or positive effect on that person. Every mother and father wants what’s best for their children. They want their children to be confident and secure because these two traits have been linked to happiness and success in life. At Greeley & Nista Orthodontics we have helped thousands of patients by fixing their smile imperfections created by crooked teeth or severe bite problems. Just simply smiling can elevate happiness, which improves self-confidence. Being able to smile fully is the first step in gaining more confidence and being happy with oneself, leading to later success in life.
A Beautiful Smile Leaves A Lasting Impression
According to the “Smile Survey” published in the PR Newswire, first impressions are everything, and the majority of people notice a smiling person first. This means that the smile, and consequently the teeth, leaves a lasting impression – for better or for worse. In the study, the people with straight teeth and a confident smile were thought of as looking and being more professional, dependable, and trustworthy than those with crooked teeth or a closed-lip smile. A healthy smile in a first impression shows responsibility and care for oneself. These first impressions could make the difference between a new job offer and a stagnant career. Being able to create the best first impression one could give also helps alleviate stress, bolstering confidence and overall happiness in life.
A Healthy Smile Equals A Healthy Lifestyle
Children face many challenges as they grow and develop. Some of life’s most basic functions can be improved with orthodontics. Speech impediments labored breathing at night, mouth breathing, cheek biting, difficulty chewing, poor oral hygiene and tooth grinding may all be related to poor tooth positions and jawbone size discrepancies. All parents want their children to grow up secure, mentally and physically healthy, and productive people. Having a beautiful smile and healthy, strong teeth and gums, can significantly contribute to lasting overall health.
