Invisalign: Q&AAsk a Question
Okay to Do Invisalign with Condyle Fracture?
I fractured my condyle on left side (relatively minor) in July of 2011. I spent 6 weeks in brackets and rubberbands while my jaw and joint healed to ensure that my bite was aligned. I am more concerned with my bite being perfect (although the cosmetic correction will be nice). I do have TMD/TMJ and clench/grind. Invisalign projects 21 aligners at my ClinCheck today (10/3). Are there concerns or questions I should be addressing/asking before I get aligners? Could it cause more problems?

Bracket orthodontics is more predictable with dealing with TMJ/TMD
