Hi there and thank you for your question.
Invisalign is an orthodontic appliance that works by contacting the surfaces of your teeth to nudge them to the next position. Invisalign is customised and designed to be as close-fitting as possible to your tooth surface to effect tooth movement and have a better grip to stay in the mouth. Cavities restored with fillings that follow the original shape of the teeth pose NO PROBLEMS to Invisalign treatment.
If you are prone to tooth decay, your Orthodontist/ Dentist may prescribe Tooth- Remineralization medication (such as Tooth mousse) that can be applied in your aligners to wear overnight. Extra care is needed to clean the aligners in the morning.
Hope this clarifies your doubts!
Cheers and #StartSmiling,
