Why might my child have problems wearing ClearCorrect braces?

While ClearCorrect braces are difficult to actually see on your child’s teeth, your child still might not like wearing the trays for the recommended 20-22 hours a day. ClearCorrect braces may also affect your child’s speech until your he gets used to wearing them.

Your child should remove his ClearCorrect braces when he eats. This can be embarrassing for children, especially when they are eating with friends. Additionally, your child must then remember to put her ClearCorrect braces back into her mouth when she has finished eating. Your child may accidentally dispose of her braces when throwing out food. ClearCorrect often replaces trays for free.
