Valencia Invisalign for Kids & Adults
Invisalign is the ultimate in terms of aesthetic treatment options, and it is preferred by many young people over the metal brackets and wires associated with traditional braces. In fact, Invisalign can be worn by young patients from the age of 6 to 10-years old, both with primary and permanent teeth.

How Does Invisalign Work?
Our orthodontists use custom molded clear trays to move teeth to the ideal position. Because they are removable, patient compliance is extremely important with aligners. Invisalign is a terrific option for working professionals or patients seeking a discrete solution to improve their smile, however it is not ideal for every patient's need, because it requires a strict routine and patients must wear their aligners at least 22 hours per day.
Is Invisalign the Best Choice ?
It depends. If your child takes direction well and you can trust them to wear the trays at least 22 hours per day and keep them in a safe place when they take them out, then it could be an excellent option. If you want Invisalign and can handle the strict requirements for successful treatment, they will enjoy the benefits of practically invisible clear aligners, meaning your friends won’t even be able to tell your wearing them. They are very smooth and forgiving on the mouth compared to metal braces, which can cause irritation, particularly among children who play sports or play instruments with mouthpieces.
How Long Will it Take for Invisalign to Straighten My Child's Teeth?
An Invisalign treatment could potentially take 6 to 18 months to straighten your child's teeth. However, there are a number of factors that can affect the time it takes for Invisalign to work:
- Practicing good oral hygiene
- Your child's tooth alignment
- Gaps in your child's teeth
- Crowded teeth
- The complexity of the case
