Invisalign is not recommended with active gun disease #DrSoftTouch

It is not recommended that a patient with active gum disease get Invisalign. This can cause increased bone loss around the teeth. I would recommend seeing a dentist to get your mouth healthy first. Good luck and I hope this helps.

Invisalign should be done with healthy gums

The inflammation from periodontal disease will make Invisalign treatment unsuccessful.  Get the gums healthy, pull any teeth that NEED pulling, fix those that can be fixed.  Then get straight teeth with Invisalign.
