I’m 18 years old and I’m planning to get invisalign invisible braces from Appleton Dental Clinic in Whitby. Recently I noticed a small gap between my teeth and also they are little protruded but it’s not noticeable. My mom says I could wait and consult with dentist as they are not noticeable, but I’m afraid to do so. She says metal braces will be good for me, but I don’t want others to notice my braces. I’m not able to convince my mom. Does anyone else had similar situation? How did you convince your mom? My initial consultation is on 11th of this month.

No reason not to consult with your regular dentist first for an opinion, not only on whether or not you could benefit from some form of braces, but whether or not the orthondonist you've made the appointment with is one with a good reputation.

Only an orthodonist can tell you what kind of braces will work in your case.

It's a big decision so it makes sense to slow down just a bit & get more info before beginning.

Just because you noticed a gap doesn't mean you need braces. Lots of people have a gap, and if it's small enough, it doesn't ever have to be treated at all. Also, you're 18, so you don't need your mom's permission to get whatever braces you and your orthodontist agree is the most appropriate (if you need them at all). Who pays for them is another matter entirely - but if you don't need them, I don't know why you'd want to convince your mom that you do.

I will add that there are many ways to do this. I STRONGLY recommend you visit an orthodontist as there may be a simpler and cheaper way to close the gap if you really want to do this.
