Orthodontics for Kids with Special Needs: Can a Child with Special Needs Use Invisalign?
For children with special needs, such as those with autism, cerebral palsy and PTSD brought on by trauma, even simple activities can be challenging. Convincing these children to straighten their teeth with traditional braces then, will prove to be extremely difficult. The wires and brackets on their teeth could lead to a number of issues. Autistic children and those with cerebral palsy are often more sensitive to physical stimuli. Should they be made to wear a traditional, non-removable brace, they may pick at it and damage it.
