ORTHODONTIC APPLIANCES

WHAT ARE ORTHODONTIC APPLIANCES?

  • Other types of orthodontic appliances may also be used during the course of treatment.
  • Some appliances are removable while others will be attached to the teeth until they are no longer needed.
  • Depending upon your needs, these appliances help with:
    • Widening the jaws in order to make sufficient space for the permanent teeth
    • Influencing jaw growth
    • The reduction of deep overbites
    • Allowing for the correction of teeth in crossbite
    • Maintaining the space for a permanent tooth when a baby tooth has been prematurely lost
    • Minor tooth movement
    • Helping to control harmful oral habits
