If your child is receiving orthodontic treatment, one of the options our pediatric dentist may recommend is OrthoFX™ clear aligners. This treatment is an excellent choice for children and teens seeking a more discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional braces. These aligners are designed to be nearly invisible, working to align teeth and improve smiles without covering the natural beauty of your child’s teeth.
At your child’s first visit to Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, Dr. Reza Arzegar will conduct a thorough examination of their oral health and teeth and discuss whether or not clear aligner therapy is the right option for their smile. OrthoFX aligners can treat all the same issues as braces, including crooked and misaligned teeth, bad bites, and gapped and spaced teeth. Unlike braces, however, your aligners are removable, which allows you to eat and drink normally and maintain good oral hygiene with regular brushing and flossing.
OrthoFX clear aligners are digitally designed to fit your mouth perfectly. They are crafted from a smooth, thin plastic material, rendering them discreet but also supremely comfortable. Your child will transition to a new set of aligners every few weeks throughout their orthodontic journey, with each set of aligners meticulously calibrated to make gradual adjustments to their tooth alignment, ensuring a gentle and effective path towards their smile transformation.
We recommend that you keep an eye on your child’s treatment to ensure they are wearing their aligners regularly. Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours each day to keep their treatment on track. We also recommend that you have your child clean their aligners regularly, as the aligners could otherwise cause your teeth to appear discolored, yellowed or stained.
