the Leeway space can be reduced due to undesired neighbouring tooth migration and space
could become insufficient for the eruption of all permanent teeth.
Various orthodontic treatment options may be used to reopen
spaces and avoid potential extractions in the permanent dentition
One option is treatment with the Invisalign Teen System,
which allows an almost invisible and comfortable way of
treating patients, with fewer potential side effects than with
conventional fixed appliances. Several examples will be presented
in this article to show how Invisalign treatment procedures
in early years can avoid potential extraction treatments.
