Dental health: Invisalign braces are best used by a mature child who is self motivated. Invisalign braces require active placement instead of passive like traditional braces. You cannot eat with them in place, so they must be removed and then your teeth brushed and flossed prior to replacing them. They are clear which means they are easily misplaced/lost.
