How old should a child be to get Invisalign?

Did you know that Invisalign can begin as early as age 5? With Invisalign First, even primary teeth can benefit from the alignment and expansion process. This leads to a natural development of the arch and ample space for permanent teeth. Plus, cleaning is easy with aligners! Parents may have concerns about children keeping the aligners in their mouth, but young children can be surprisingly compliant. Parents can remove the aligners as needed for cleaning, teaching children about the importance of maintaining good dental hygiene. As children grow older, it is vital to ensure that school and sports activities don't interfere with aligner wear. With proper support from parents and a commitment to compliance, Invisalign can be a great option for children of all ages.
