Invisalign for Irregular Teeth Positioning

Would Invisalign suit my condition? My upper teeth have gaps, with both canines slightly rotated, and one of my 2nd premolars (right side) is not moving ahead because of my 1st premolar. Also, I had an X-ray and my doc told me that I don't have any wisdom teeth. I'm 23 years old.

Rotations are unpredictable with Invisalign

You say that your canines are slightly rotated. Slight rotations can be fixed with Invisalign, but not easily or quickly. A more predictable way is with traditional brackets, which has many other advantages as well.

Without seeing you, it is very difficult to say if Invisalign would be a good choice. The best advice is to have a consultation with someone with Invisalign experience.
