You are qualified


From the photographs is appears you are qualified for Invisalign. Expansion should provide enough room to straighten your teeth.

Invisalign is very good at expansion to a certain limit. You should be able to fall within that limit.

Don't wait any more. Go ahead and get it done. You have waited long enough.

Invisalign plus jaw widening is the answer to protrusion


Front teeth protrusion can usually be corrected with Invisalign treatment.  However, you must ask the question "Why are the teeth protruding?"  Teeth protrusion (and crowding) occur because the dental arches are constricted. Adding a step of functional facial orthopedics prior to Invisalign to widen the upper jaw first, will give more room to reduce your protrusion.  Then using Invisalign can correct the protrusion and give a much fuller, more beautiful smile.
