1
Tweens and Teens Overcoming Fears Associated
with Braces

2
For tweens and teens one of the biggest fears
they have about their appearance is when they are
told the need to get braces.

3
Many kids might already have some friends who
have braces and have heard first-hand various
stories about how painful the process is and
the discomfort braces cause in the mouth.

4
What you and your tween or teen might not be
aware of is dental technologies have advanced
since the days of metal braces and there are
other variable solutions to fixing orthodontic
problems, like getting Invisalign.

5
Before deciding which option is best for your
tween or teen, the first thing to do is schedule
a consultation with their family dentist to
discuss what fears they have about getting
braces.

6
One frequent fear tweens and teens experience is
not understanding the process and preparations
needed to correctly prepare their teeth either
for braces or Invisalign.

7
Having their dentist present ensures all of their
questions are answered and they fully understand
the processes and procedures used with both
traditional braces and Invisalign.

Parents are also encouraged to ask questions
during this consultation visit so they too, fully
understand the procedures and processes.

9
Another common concern tweens and teens have is
how the braces are going to affect their
appearance.

10
They are often very sensitive to any type of
cosmetic change that will make them feel and look
different from other kids their own age,
including their friends.
  • www.kennedysquaredental.com

11
It is beneficial to remind your tween or teen
that there are numerous other kids their own age,
who are going through the same thing, as this
often helps put their mind at ease.

12
Another fear some tweens and teens have is a fear
of the expected pain from having braces installed
over their teeth.
  • www.kennedysquaredental.com

13
Their friends may have already told them the pain
they experience whenever they have to get their
braces cleaned, tightened or how it makes eating
certain foods unpleasant.

14
Truthfully, there is almost no pain, as braces
and Invisalign both gently shift and realign the
teeth over time this is why it takes a few
years!
  • www.kennedysquaredental.com

15
Another way to address this concern is to let
them know they can talk to their dentist about
getting a numbing agent they can apply at home
for any gum discomfort.

16
Since the process can take several years, some
tweens and teens will object to the process
because it takes forever from their
perspective.
  • www.kennedysquaredental.com

17
The best way to overcome this objection is to
point out a few years is not really that long,
compared to the 60 years they will get to enjoy
having beautiful looking, straightened teeth and
a stunning smile and appearance.

In cases where your tween or teen still has
feelings of reluctance, or is fearful they wont
get to eat their favourite foods,

19
you will want to get them Invisalign because it
overcomes many of their fears and concerns. Plus,
in many cases, your tweens or teens friends
will not even notice they are getting their teeth
straightened.
