Invisalign and crossbites

Can Invisalign work with crossbites too. Would braces be better in this case?

Invisalign usually solves less complex cases, since braces are stronger and faster (metal vs. plastic at the end of the day). So, depending on how complex you case is, your orthodontist will know what to use. The good thing with Invisalign is that it's hard to spot on your teeth, so, if you tend to be self-conscious about wearing braces, they'd be a good solution.

But braces are usually more used in complex cases, since the orthodontist can also use various other things (powerchains, mini-implants etc.) to get your treatment done better and faster.

Yes, Crossbites can be fixed with the aligners. Metal braces are very outdated. If you have any more doubts, please check
