Sure no problem at all. Basically, when we do aligners we are doing a digital scan of your teeth so if you have existing restoration, we are scanning your teeth according to the shape of the restoration, so it should not be an issue at all. In fact, it is easier for my restorative dentist to fix maybe tooth decay and things like that, during the treatment, in the case where you develop tooth decay or something because there is nothing joining your teeth together so they can easily perform any restoration during the course of treatment with aligners.
If you have knocked on the front tooth before, I think the most important thing is to establish the health of the tooth, any tooth that has been traumatized before there is a slightly increased chance of the tooth dying whether you are doing braces or Invisalign.
Invisalign has come up with this solution called "Invisalign first", so they just launched around somewhere last year. So that it’s a system tailored for younger children from age 7, at that age group sometimes we do see some conditions that we want to do some early treatment.
