Please know that traditional braces are 90-95% effective in the hands of a qualified Orthodontist. Clear aligners are about 41% effective. Average treatment effectiveness in the hands of a non-specialist even less so.

Yes: your specific case will need to be evaluated by an orthodontist,. but invislaign can be effective in treating what you describe if your case is not too severe

Appliances: For best answer go see an Orthodontic Specialist for initial Examination (usually free) to discuss the ex tent of your malocclusion and the treatment plans that are appropriate for you. If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Many non-Orthodontis do clear aligner treatment because they are not trained to do anything else, but Orthodontists do it better.
