I just had diagnostics completed for invisalign treatment. My upper arch is narrow- will invisalign automatically create arch expansion for a wider look , can this happen for the jaw as well?
Will Invisalign an Arch Expansion for a Wider Look?

Narrow arch, will invisalign expand it
When your dentists submits the case to invisalign he/she will direct the technicians to expand the arch to achieve the look you are seeking. You are no able to expand the jaw.
Have a question? Ask a doctor
Can invisalign widen my smile?
Neither braces nor Invisalign can make a huge change in arch width for adult patients. The more expansion you do the less stable the final result will be meaning that if you stop wearing your retainer for a few nights, even years later, the width will begin to collapse
