It is effective


Most conditions that require orthodontic treatment can be accomplished with Invisalign. The length of treatment depends on the complexity of what needs to be done. Not all general dentists or orthodontists are comfortable with this mode of care so seek one who is experienced and skilled in this area. Pick one with the experience and enthusiasm to get great results without all the risks of braces!

Yes


You will experience movement in tiny increments each time you have adjustments. You will any movement by a bit of soreness. Adjustments for movement must be made slowly so as not to damage the teeth or surrounding bone. Moving them too fast can cause shortened roots. However, there will be some movement occurring right away, although it will be slight.

Is there anyway to correct just one crooked tooth without resorting to orthodontia? Most of my teeth are perfectly straight, expect for one front tooth, which came in crooked for some reason. Is there any way to straighten just one tooth? .

Veneer or crown


If you have just one tooth out of alignment you may consider a veneer or crown. Discuss this with you dentist and he/she may consider waxing this up on a model so you can see what this might look like when completed.

Unlikely


If your teeth are basically straight, but look uneven due to slight variations in vertical height, it is possible to "recontour" the edges to be more "in line", one must wear a retainer to make sure these reduced teeth do not move "up" again. This is a very rare scenario, but if it exists, it is one way to make it look better. Orthodontics is almost always preferred.

See your dentist


If it is a "simple" or less involved tooth movement, many general dentists perform this type of orthodontic treatment, possible Invisalign. If it is a more difficult situation, they may refer you to an Orthodontist whom they work closely with. Remember to continue periodic teeth cleaning appointments when undergoing orthodontic treatment.

That is what orthodontic appliances are for. It really depends on the severity of the malocclusion as to what treatment should be rendered, that's why it's best you consult with a local orthodontist.

Mostly genetics


Most commonly it is genetically predisposing, but as an infant, if you use a pacifier all the time and sleep with a bottle etc, that can cause teeth to shift and even decay in childhood.
