Why Can't I Get Invisalign After Teeth Extraction?
My teeth are pretty straight but I have a minor protrusion that has been bothering me. I visited an orthodontist and she told me I would have to get 4 teeth extracted to make room. I am a 22 year old woman who do not want to wear metal braces for the next two years. The orthodontist told me I cannot get invisalign if I were to get my teeth extracted. But why not? I saw pictures of people with worse conditions than me but they are able to use invisalign. Please advise!
