Is your child’s teeth misaligned? Perhaps they have a problem with their bite or are overcrowded. Are you debating between invisalign and braces? When it comes to straightening children’s teeth, metal braces are no longer the first option.
If you’re debating whether or not to get Invisalign for your child or teen, here’s a few things to consider.
- Invisalign is convenient
The invisalign aligners are totally removable. Your children can even take them out to eat and brush their teeth. The aligners should be worn for only 20 to 22 hours each day. This gives the kids some leeway. They can even remove the braces during sports or their playtime. Your child can eat whatever they wish to. Invisalign is so much more comfortable when compared to traditional braces.
- Dentist visits are less
Invisalign is a fantastic choice for straightening your children’s teeth because it requires them to spend less time in the dentist’s chair. Traditional braces necessitate numerous dental visits because they only move your teeth when the wires are tightened or adjusted. This should be done on a monthly or bimonthly basis. These regular appointments are no longer necessary with Invisalign. You’ll still need to visit the dentist every month or two to make sure your treatment is working, but your child will be able to change aligners at home.
- It’s Easy to Clean Aligners
Cleaning Invisalign aligners is a breeze, which should assuage parents’ concerns. You can clean the aligners by gently brushing with a toothbrush and lukewarm water.
You must not use toothpaste since it’s extremely abrasive and could leave obvious scratch marks which can draw attention to existing ones. If this practice isn’t keeping your kids’ aligners clean enough, Invisalign offers a cleaning kit that can be purchased.
- Cavities are less likely with Invisalign.
As a parent, you do everything you can to ensure that your children acquire good dental hygiene habits. Braces increase the risk of cavities because they collect food and create spots where plaque can build up that are difficult to brush. When your children use invisalign, they will take out their aligners to eat and brush their teeth. They do not need to adjust their dental hygiene practices except to clean their aligners.

Our specialists will assess your situation and help you decide if Invisalign is best for your child.
