Can Invisalign Correct a Rotated Tooth?

Yes but depends on a number of factors
Most rotations greater than 30 degrees are considered challenging movements. The degree of rotation correction may depend on a number of factors:
1. Shape of the tooth. Some teeth will not have surfaces that allow the aligner to adequately "grip" them for rotation.
2. Type of attachment used.
3. Length of the root.
4. Axis of rotation.
5. Amount of space available for rotation.
6. Order of movement.
There are no hard and fast rules about Invisalign and orthodontics in general. Each specific treatment plan has to be tailored to the individual situation by an experienced Invisalign orthodontist or dentist. Best of luck!
Rotations CAN be done with Invisalign
While many things are possible, some things are extra challenging and take longer to do. If the tooth is rotated more than 45 degrees, I prefer wires.

Yes, possible for Invisalign to correct rotated tooth
It depends on the situation of the tooth. For example, how is the opposing tooth, is there any space available to rotate, etc. You should check the clincheck first.
