How Invisalign treatment works:
Invisalign First works by expanding and contouring a child’s jawline through a method known as dental arch expansion. Dental arch expansion consists of gradually pushing a child’s teeth over time to increase the width of their dental arch. Every procedure for dental arch expansion begins with a free consultation, where an orthodontist will determine if your child is an appropriate candidate for Invisalign First.
If approved, Happy Kids Dental orthodontist will take x-rays and digital scans of your child’s smile that same day. Information from these scans will be sent to an Invisalign lab where a custom Invisalign First aligner will be custom-made just for your child.
How much Invisalign First costs?
Invisalign First prices start from £2700.
At Happy Kids Dental, these payment can be broken down into much more affordable monthly payments if required.
To determine an exact treatment cost, we would first need to do an assessment, since your child’s smile and needs, are unique, and therefore, his treatment fee and budget would differ from everyone else.
If you are ready to take the first steps in transforming your teen’s smile, book your consultation and we will happily assess your particular needs and provide you with a detailed cost breakdown for the best treatment to fit your teen’s specific needs.
