You are NOT the ideal candidate for Invisalign. Have a consultation with an experienced orthodontist for your options.

There are limits to what can be done with Invisalign, and while SOME may say that Invisalign CAN work, it is unpredictable in how well it will turn out.  I suggest seeing an experienced orthodontist, as you may need a surgical consultation.  It is possible that a tongue thrust or positioning habit exists, which should be addressed as well, otherwise the case can relapse after it is all done.
