Invisalign over implants is fine and dandy...

No problem at all the Dr will tell invisalign to not move the implant tooth and the aligner is built over it but does not attempt to move the implant.... Easy!

No worries. You can definetely have Invisalign treatment done in a presence of implant. The matter in fact, in some cases, I prefer to have them as an anchorage to move the other teeth, and finish treatment more effectively. As long as that tooth is in a right position (imoplant can not be moved being integrated into the bone), you are in a good shape.

Invisalign is okay with implant crowns but implant won't move

+2
You can use invisalign with implant crowns. The implant crown will not be able to be moved since it is fixed in the bone, but the other teeth can move around it.

Implants aren't damaged from Invisalign

While they won't be damaged, they also won't move.  At all.

Implants make great anchors for leverage, especially with Invisalign.  Invisalign is a gentle process and won't damage the crown or implant.
