Hi Im a Junior in high school, and i have crowded/crooked teeth on the top and i want to get invisalign soon so that i can be done with the treatment by college? I dont want metal braces because Im going to be a senior soon and that would look really bad.............. So in my case, my bottom row is pretty much straight but on the top row, i have crooked teeth that goes in a little too far in, and two front teeth sticking out Would i even be a possible candidate for INVISALIGN?

Yes you may be a condidate for Invisalign.
High school is a stressful yet amazing time. You have a point with not wanting to go around with braces. Invisalign aligners can be used to orthodontically re-align your teeth. Space needs to be made on the upper jaw to allow for the tooth on the right to be brought out into alignment. Your teeth may be a little wide and may need to be narrowed a little. The process may take about 12-18 months. Find an approved Invisalign provider that has experience in orthodontics using Invisalign. You are on the right track!!

A more thorough examination by an orthodontist would be needed to evaluate your case one hundred percent, but you should be a good candidate for Invisaling treatment. There is a lot of improvement that can be achieved for your teeth with a proper treatment plan by a right doctor.
