Removable Orthodontic Appliance
Removable and fast results
A removable appliance is made from a plastic plate with wires coming from the sides. These grip the teeth to keep the brace in place. Removable appliances have a limited number of uses, mainly because they are restricted to moving single teeth and widening either the upper or lower arches. They are not precision appliances and therefore cannot be used for complicated or fine tooth movements.
Anyone aged from approximately 7 can wear a removable appliance and the treatment time is approximately 6 to 9 months. However, it must always be borne in mind that success of treatment depends on patient compliance

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some answers to commonly asked questions:
- Removing Appliance – Always pull the clips around your back teeth, not the bars at the front. Do not flick the appliance in and out with your tongue as this will weaken the acrylic and lead to a breakage. Take the appliance in and out with your fingers.
- Speech –As with traditional braces, every person reacts differently. However, most patients do not experience a speech impediment. Those patients who do experience a minor speech impediment during the first couple of weeks find that this improves with each passing day. Your orthodontist can also provide you with speech exercises.
- Treatment Length – Your removable appliance must be worn at all times, even when you are asleep (unless told otherwise by your orthodontist). The more you wear your appliance, the quicker your treatment will be. The appliance can be taken out for brushing the teeth, eating and sport, but it must be worn as soon as possible after.
