In addition to being a leader in the treatment of teen orthodontics using Invisalign, we are also qualified to treat child orthodontics using a line of Invisalign that specializes for kids from 8 years to 11 years ol. Extensive research has proved that starting orthodontics in earlier childhood gives us the optimum ability to provide more space for the larger permanent teeth to come in properly in the mouth, avoiding multiple extractions when they are teens to create room for the larger teeth. Furthermore, with the ability to expand the upper and lower jaws in earlier years we can decrease the chances of kids developing sleep apnea and other sleep disorder breathing problems in the future.
