Will Invisalign and expander fix my crossbite?
Bilateral cross bite is hard to treat well and get a good stable result. You will undoubtedly get a better, more stable result with the ceramic braces and expander from a good clinician. Will invisalign work - possibly, but the results will not be nearly as optimal. The biological principles and mechanics of conventional braces (DAMON system in particular) is superior to invisalign. Invisalign works best on simple cases.
