  3. True or False: Wearing clear braces offers enhanced comfort over traditional metal braces.

Quiz Answers

  1. False. For severe misalignment issues, clear braces are not appropriate. Fortunately, they do address a wide variety of smile concerns, including open bite, under bite, cross bite, over bite, spacing, and even overcrowding.
  2. False. You will need to wear your aligner trays for 20 to 22 hours every day, which means you will wear them while you sleep. The good news is that you can take them out of your mouth to accomplish your daily dental hygiene, to eat your meals and snacks, and to drink your favorite beverages.
  3. True. Instead of wearing wires and brackets on your teeth, you will simply be wearing clear, smoothly textured, plastic aligner trays for treatment. They result in little to no discomfort or irritation because of the way they are crafted.
