How will I know if getting invisible (lingual) braces was successful?

Your orthodontist will follow you through the process of moving your teeth with invisible (lingual) braces. The orthodontist will tell you when you’ve achieved the best possible outcome with these braces. Generally, your teeth will be straighter, without gaps, and with your bite corrected. For the best results, it’s important that you follow your orthodontist’s instructions after the braces have been removed, because you may need to wear a retainer for a few years to keep your teeth aligned.
