Quiz: Invisalign Clear Braces

Straightening crooked teeth these days isn’t the same as it used to be, or how many people believe it still is. When your teeth are out of alignment–a condition known as malocclusion–you may find a more comfortable, more discreet solution with Invisalign Clear Braces. For most adult patients with mild to moderate malocclusion, Invisalign can offer the chance to improve teeth alignment without having to endure the presence of potentially awkward metal braces.

  2. True or False: This system corrects smiles with clear aligners.
  3. True or False: There are multiple advantages of clear aligners.
  4. True or False: We offer a free cosmetic consultation.

Answer Key

  1. True. Teens and young adults alike can benefit from Invisalign, as long as their teeth and jawbones have already fully developed. However, younger children whose oral structures are still growing may not be good candidates, since the aligners are designed as solid pieces and cannot be altered to accommodate them.
  1. True. Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign is a series of clear acrylic aligners that gradually guide crooked teeth back into proper alignment.
  1. True. The visual advantage to clear aligners over braces is that, as nearly invisible plastic appliances that fit snugly over your teeth, they won’t be noticed as you go about your day. Yet, discretion is only a small part of the aligners’ advantages. Since they’re removable, you can also eat and practice good hygiene without any drastic alterations to your daily routines.
