How will I know if my child's ClearCorrect braces were a success?

Your child’s orthodontist will follow your child through the process of moving her teeth with ClearCorrect braces. The orthodontist will tell you when your child has achieved the best possible outcome with these braces. Generally, her teeth will be straighter, and without gaps. For the best results, it’s important that your child follows the orthodontist’s instructions after she have finished treatment with ClearCorrect braces, because she may need to wear a retainer for a few years to keep her teeth aligned.
