Hello and thanks for the question. Even if only one tooth is crooked, orthodontists must use the surrounding teeth as "anchors" in order to straighten it. Yes, the other teeth will move slightly (in a good way), but the majority of movement will be in the straightening of the one crooked tooth. Invisalign Treatment is also a great option for simple cases. Make sure you go to a certified Orthodontic Specialist for a proper diagnosis. Hope this helps. Dr. G READ MORE
