Dr. Josh Johnson is the Inland NW leader in Invisalign First, treatment designed specifically for little smiles. Designed to treat a broad range of teeth straightening issues in ages 6-10, Dr. Johnson will conservatively guide your child through this important stage of growth and eruption to the permanent teeth. The amazing JJO team will give above-and-beyond personal attention that will make your child's visits a relaxed, fun and positive experience.
Invisalign First and Early Treatment
Dr. Joshua Johnson understands how important your children are to you. That’s why he encourages you to bring them in for an early orthodontic exam at approximately age 7, as recommended by the American Association of Orthodontists. Bite problems may be present at this age which, left unattended, can be difficult to correct at a later age or even cause irreparable damage to the permanent teeth. Even one crooked tooth can throw off the bite, hinder proper cleaning and cause functional problems as your child grows older, including gum disease, cavities and speech disorders. Dr. Johnson will conduct a comprehensive exam to check for these and other problems:
- Excessive wear and chipping of front teeth
- Severe crowding
- Habits: finger/thumb-sucking, tongue-thrusting
- Crossbite of front and back teeth
- Eruption problems and space management
The Benefits of Correcting Bite Problems Early
Early detection and treatment can prevent your child from needing costly and time-consuming dental care in the future. You’ll be happy to know that Dr. Johnson always looks at conservative treatment options first. He uses the latest interceptive methods to correct problems before they progress badly and require surgical correction. These include expansion devices, partial braces, and custom appliances. Early intervention can reduce treatment time for your child’s braces later on and provide a stable, healthy bite for a lifetime.

Next, Dr. Johnson offers Invisalign®, which is a revolutionary alternative to traditional braces that can give you a beautiful smile without metal wires or brackets. With Invisalign®, a series of clear removable, custom-made aligners gradually move your teeth just like braces do, in some cases up to 50% faster! Invisalign® can benefit both adults and teens. Finally, Dr. Johnson offers self-ligating braces. These revolutionary braces have a unique design that allows for freedom of movement.
