Will the fact I’ve had gum disease and some recession prevent me from straightening my teeth?

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010
Q.
Hello, I’m 27 years old and have very healthy and white teeth with no fillings. I had braces when I was younger (15) but as I stopped wearing my retainer my teeth have since moved a bit and are not as straight as I would like. I was thinking about going for the invisalign treatment to re-straighten the teeth which have moved. However there is a problem – when I went to the dentist recently he said over the last 3 years I have suffered from some gum disease which has led to a small amount of bone loss on my two very back teeth (diagnosed from routine x-rays in a check up). I have also noticed a small amount of recession on two of my front teeth. Anyway, I’ve rectified the problems with my gums now (through hygienist visits and an electric toothbrush) and they are healthy and pink now. Will the fact I’ve had gum disease and some recession prevent me from straightening my teeth?,
