Invisalign right for me
A Dr apt is free why not go in and find out the best tretment for your case why guess. There are pros and cons for all treatment and you need to learn all them and then decide which is the best one to fit your needs and problems ...good luck
Invisalign for Teen Who Does Not Want Traditional Braces
I agree it's hard to tell from your photos if that is how your teeth fit together when you bite down (an open bite and cross bite). Invisalign MIGHT be an option for you -- the best way to find out would be to find a few Invisalign providers in your area and schedule consultations with them. If you have some providers who are orthodontists (specialists), include them in your search. Good Luck!
Not everyone's treatment is suitable for Invisalign
I can't tell from the photos if you are actually biting down all the way, but if that is the case, you seem to have what we call an "Open Bite" with "Cross Bite". At your age, 16 going on 17, it would be next to impossible to correct your malocclusion with Invisalign. Without getting any further specifics, I would be hesitant to offer any recommendations, and I would highly recommend you to seek orthodontic evaluations in your area. It is not uncommon to get second or third opinions from other orthodontists. Good luck!
