Hi,
I never really asked about how much it could be decreased by. I am only guessing that is it about 3mm.

Hi,
I have gac in-ovations. I have had no problems with them. In fact I am getting my braces off next month after 23 months and 1 week. I was estimated at 27 months, I think I am getting them off because of good rubberband wear.
