Orthodontic Appliances

Orthodontic appliances are necessary when braces alone are not adequate to fully correct your orthodontic problem.

Modern orthodontic treatment involves the use of both fixed and removable appliances.

  • Fixed appliances, also known as braces, form a major part of the orthodontic treatment.
  • Removable appliances play only a supporting role in comprehensive treatment but are important in the orthodontic treatment of children.

Removable appliances are appliances which can be easily removed and reinserted into mouth. They consist of wires and screws held together by a plastic base and are often used to hold teeth in their final position once braces treatment has been completed.

When would appliances be used?

  • When a small amount of orthodontic correction is required.
  • After tooth movement using braces is complete, a retainer must be worn to hold the teeth and jaws in their new and proper position.
  • The retainer must be worn for approximately one year to help prevent the teeth or jaws from falling back to its original or starting position.
