Invisalign Quiz

  1. Invisalign is composed of clear brackets and tooth-colored wires
  2. Invisalign is permanently placed in your mouth like traditional braces
  3. You will need to pay more for your Invisalign treatment than metal braces
  4. This treatment is known for its extraordinary comfort
  5. This system requires very simple care – you will rinse your trays under lukewarm water, brush them, and care for your teeth and gums as usual

Quiz Answer Key

  1. False. Invisalign does not rely on brackets and wires. Instead, you will wear BPA-free, thin, clear plastic trays.
  2. False. Your aligner trays will be removable. They will offer a stable fit, so your smile will continue to look natural and you will be able to speak comfortably. Your dentist will suggest you wear them for at least 20 hours each day, but you may take them out to eat, drink, and to care for your smile.
  3. False. The investment required for Invisalign and metal braces is typically quite similar.
  4. True. Unlike metal braces, your trays are composed of smooth plastic, so you will not experience irritation.
  5. True. The care is really that easy, allowing you to brush and floss your teeth without having to change your methods or use special tools often required of conventional braces.
