Removable Appliances

Dental Treatments

If you’re looking for a way to laugh freely, Removable Appliances may be the perfect solution.

Removable appliances are a popular orthodontic solution that can be easily taken out by the patient. Unlike fixed devices, these appliances aren’t bonded to teeth and offer greater flexibility when it comes to correcting minor dental issues such as crowding or spacing.

There are various types of removable appliances available, including retainers which help maintain tooth alignment after treatment. These custom-made devices come in different materials like acrylic or clear plastic and fit over or behind your teeth for maximum comfort.

Aligners represent another type of appliance made from transparent trays resembling mouthguards used for straightening crooked teeth while being worn 20-22 hours per day but removed during meals, brushing sessions and flossing routines.

For patients with narrow arches requiring correction, there’s also the option of using expanders designed specifically for this purpose. They’re placed on top roofs where they widen jaws through adjustments done either by an orthodontist or yourself!

FAQ

What is removable appliance therapy?

Removable appliance therapy is a type of orthodontic treatment that uses custom-made, removable devices to correct dental alignment and bite issues. These appliances can be taken out for cleaning and certain activities. They are used to address minor tooth movements, guide jaw growth, retain teeth after treatment, or temporarily expand dental arches. Regular wear and follow-up visits are necessary for successful treatment.

What are removable orthodontic appliances used for?

Removable orthodontic appliances serve multiple purposes in orthodontic treatment. They are used to correct minor tooth movements, such as crowding or spacing issues, as well as minor tooth rotations or tilting. These appliances can also guide the growth and development of the jaws in growing individuals, promoting a more harmonious bite relationship. After completing orthodontic treatment, removable retainers are often used to maintain the achieved tooth alignment and prevent relapse. Additionally, removable appliances with expanders can temporarily create more space in dental arches, particularly for cases involving dental crowding. Orthodontists carefully assess each patient’s needs and develop a customized treatment plan that may include the use of removable appliances. Consistent wear and proper maintenance of the appliances are crucial for successful treatment outcomes.
