I have two baby teeth that never had adult teeth underneath them, so the dentist is going to pull them. I’m planning on getting invisalign because I have some crooked teeth. Will Invisalign work with missing teeth or do I need to replace them?

Invisalign will generally work with missing teeth. Whether or not you want to replace them will depend on how symmetrical your smile will look without them.
If your smile doesn’t need those teeth, then you can just use Invisalign. If your smile would look off without them, then you could replace them with dental implants. Any competent cosmetic dentist would be able to help you to know if your smile will be assymetrical or not.
