Questions & answers

Removable orthodontic appliances

What are removable orthodontic appliances?

Removable orthodontic appliances are different tools to help aid your orthodontic treatment. They do so by helping specific teeth shift into place or protect your mouth from injury.

What are some common removable appliances?

Common types of removable appliances may include:

  • Elastics
  • Headgear
  • Palatal expanders
  • Retainers
  • Clear aligners

How will a removable appliance benefit me?

These specific removable appliances are used to shift specific teeth into the desired position with the help of your regular braces. Some are designed to protect your mouth from injury during the straightening process or to keep your teeth in the proper position after treatment is over. We will discuss which options may be most beneficial for your specific orthodontic case.

The right appliance for you

Any removable orthodontic appliances needed may be determined at the beginning of your treatment, depending on your specific needs. We invite you to come see our orthodontists at Children & Family Dentistry & Braces about what specific appliances you may need. Contact our office today.

Your options for orthodontic care

Depending on your specific needs, our orthodontists will determine which orthodontic appliance is best for you. There are many types of removable appliances that you can discuss during your initial appointment.

  • Palatal expander — A palatal expander is a device that is used on children who need early orthodontic care. It helps to widen the upper jaw to allow more room for their erupting teeth.
  • Headgear — Headgear is used for children to help restrict the growth of the upper jaw to improve an overbite.
  • Clear aligners — Clear aligners are custom made to fit over your natural smile and gradually shift your teeth into place. They are more comfortable and easier to maintain.
  • Mouth guards — Mouth guards are a great option for when you need to protect your teeth during aggressive sports. They will prevent your teeth from getting damaged.
  • Night guards — Night guards are for people who grind their teeth at night. The guard will fit comfortably over your teeth and protect them from wearing down as you sleep.
  • Retainers — Retainers are for when you have finished your orthodontic treatment. The retainer will help keep your teeth from shifting back into their original position.
