Can I have invisalign even though I have bone loss and receding gums?

Q.
I previously had some gum disease which resulted in a small amount of bone loss on my back two teeth, according to my private dentist when he took routine x-rays. My gums are pink and healthy now and I use an electric toothbrush. However I noticed a long time ago that two of my upper front teeth had receded a bit and my tooth arent perfectly straight either (despite having braces when I was 15). I would really like to have a perfect smile. Would invisalign work (my teeth are otherwise white and healthy, no fillings) or would that make the receding gums worse? would lumineers be a better option?
A.
Yes Invisalign may well work very well for you, definitely better than Lumineers in your case. next step would be to get an expert in both to give you a good consultation and advice to take things further. most Invisalign dentists like myself offer a complimentary consultation

I have one tooth at the front that the gum is receding. will my oral b round headed electric toothbrush make my condition worse by pushing the gum away further?

The lower incisors are about 21m long from the incisal tip to the end of the root. If the teeth are loose you should see your dentist ASAP
