Patient compliance is essential for successful treatment. The first month is crucial in adopting the habit to use the appliance (because creating a habit in general requires 3-4 weeks of regularity). To motivate the patient and his/her family, age appropriate material is available for both preadolescents and adolescents. It is important to make sure the patient and his/her family understands that irregular use may be equivalent with no treatment at all.
