can invisalign work for everyone?

No: Invisalign is the leading clear aligner therapy in orthodontics but some patients' teeth are not suited for invisalign because of a variety of reasons such as: 1) too much crowding, 2) skeletal issues, or 3) because some patients will not be compliant about wearing their invisalign aligners. If you are really opposed to wearing traditional orthodontic braces, you could consider lingual braces.
