Removable dental braces are used to correct minor tooth or jaw misalignments.
They are particularly suitable for creating space or as a placeholder for future permanent teeth. They can also compensate for a recessed lower jaw compared to the upper jaw.
Removable dental braces typically consist of a metal bracket and a cover, or a bespoke plastic base offered in a range of colours, which can be augmented with individual images. Plastic dental braces can be reduced or expanded using small screws. The jaw is thus stretched slightly, gaps opened or closed, and teeth moved into the correct position.
Removable orthodontic appliances include Headgear, Monoblock, SAHM, plates and transparent splint systems such as Orthofolio, Invisalign etc.
