Is It Possible To Switch From Braces to Invisalign?

I’m pretty sure my mom convinced my orthodontist to just say you can’t switch from braces to invisalign to shut me up. I wanted Invisalign to begin with, but my mom says I lose things too often. She’s right. I do lose things, but this is something that was important to me and I would have taken care of them. So, is he telling the truth? Is it impossible to switch? I HATE braces.

Well, technically, you can switch from braces to Invisalign, but only if you’re a candidate for Invisalign to begin with. You wouldn’t want to remove your braces only to find out that you’re not a candidate.

If I were in your place, I’d talk to your mom about how you feel. I know you mentioned your mom was worried about your losing the aligners. I wonder if she knows about Invisalign Teen?  They factor into the cost extra aligners on the assumption a couple will get lost.

She might be more willing to switch if she knows the aligners are covered.
