Answer Key

1. True. We often recommend clear braces for patients who have minor misalignment and are over the age of 16. Our team will carefully exam your teeth and then assess the cause and severity of your alignment issues. From there, we can decide if Invisalign is the best option for correcting misalignment.

2. True. Traditional orthodontics use metal brackets connected by arch wires to correct smiles with tension. While this works great for more serious alignment problems, less severe malocclusion can be address with a practically invisible alternative. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners, worn every day, to reposition the teeth.

3. True. Before a meal, you can simply remove your aligners. As a result, you won’t need to avoid foods that could possible become trapped in braces or even damage them. Being able to remove your aligners will also make brushing and flossing your teeth easier, which reduces the risk of gum issues, tooth decay, and even discoloration.

4. True. You will only need to see the orthodontist about once every six weeks, which saves time and money.
