What could happen to my child's teeth if they don't get clear braces?

If your child doesn't get clear braces -- or any type of braces -- your child's teeth will continue to develop incorrectly. Your child's teeth may become more crooked and his bite and jaw joints more misaligned. Your child may have speech problems or suffer from headaches and earaches. Children's teeth are usually easily corrected. Consult with an orthodontist about your child's misaligned teeth.
