Can 11 year old son get invisalign?

My son is 11 years old and he has a huge gap between his front teeth. Also, his teeth are not aligned properly. He won't accompany me to visit a dentist as he is afraid of injections and also the large equipment in the dental clinic. By seeing the condition of his teeth, I was sure that the dentist will suggest getting dental braces. So I told him about this. But he is not happy with the idea of wearing braces. He says that his friends had suffered a lot of pain due to metallic braces. I tried hard to convince him but he is not listening to me. When I discussed this with my colleagues, she suggested Invisalign braces from a clinic in Mississauga ( http://www.willowdental.com/our-services/orthodontics/invisalign/ ). She said it is a virtually invisible way to straighten teeth. I just want to know how effective is Invisalign braces. Can Invisalign close the gap between the teeth? Can a 11-year-old get Invisalign braces? Any advice is highly appreciated. Thanks!
